Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Do you guys think an A will be above or below 60?
2. (Original post by gandalf029)
Did we have to calculate equation of the target, or the normal?
Normal, but u had to know the grad of tangent and use 1/m to get -2.
3. (Original post by harper0057)
was it not stretch in the y direction scale factor 3 for question 6
Yeah I put that too
4. (Original post by Shehryar01)
I got 4. i think they were 45,(180-45), and some decimals from the other pair.
It asked for the solutions to the nearest degree so the decimals should be rounded; Just to let you know.
5. All you try hards are pagans . It wasn't easier than last year . and no the grade boundaries won't be higher than last years.

Of course it makes people pagans for putting effort into an exam you've studied for a year. You're not Dizzee Rascal like you apparently think so sit down.
9. how many marks was the last part of the sequence and series question
10. 3(x^3 +1)^1/2 translation, I took the 3 in the sqrt and times everything by nine, you then had the same equation as before but with a 9 in front of the x^3 resulting in scale factor 1/9??
11. I got all of those

I imagine 60-63 for an A, it had similar difficulty to the 2015 paper overall

Wasn't an A 58 in the 2015 paper?
16. I thought the transformation question was a stretch with scale factor 25 damn
17. that was a hard paper, anyone agree ?
