Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
1. (Original post by NickC98)
Sure was one damn tough exam... What are you lot thinking the grade boundary for an A would be roughly? Seeing as the hardest past paper I've done was Jan 2013 and had 48/72 for an A would you think it would be around 50/72?
More like 52 imo

Christ that was so so easy. Got so bored about 50 mins in.
What?!!!!!!!!

Beautiful, don't think I would've dropped more than 20 marks
4. could someone find an unofficial mark scheme, thanks in advance
5. I failed that badly man, gonna have to reivindicate with m3
6. (Original post by harpreetrai3)
i put leans towards 0 as it was like an x^2/x^3
I think it wanted what the sum was converging to. All of them added.
7. I think that paper was somewhat like Jan 2013 but a little easier, questions wasn't that hard but just different which throws some students off the generic way of working them out.

Yeah I got 2/3 as the last two terms would tend towards 0
9. I did revise but I ran out of time so badly, the thing didn't work for question 6 but I did put an explanation, I got lke 2 marks in q 5, then I ****ed question 7, did question 8 well, I think I left q 9
10. What's the lowest that full ums has ever been

It was 48 for an A in jan 13 I got full marks in a mock but this went proper shite
lost about 30 or less marks
15. For the Inverse of B did anyone else multiply the matrix A by (1/25)?

And 168 units squared for the first question? Area of the image of the triangle

Yes to both questions. They made use the cosine rule and 0.5ABsinC for only 2 marks.
19. what was question 7 and 9?

I agree, but annoying because an a will be around 63/64
