    Please say most of you found that paper ridiculously tricky???

    First part was ok then as soon as it got to the similtaneous equations question it went downhill!

    EVERYTHING was a fraction - I kept checking and rechecking my answers because I thought I was wrong as most of my working out was heading towards top heavy fractions.... to the point where I thought I must be doing them wrong so jst left them because I couldn't get them to be anything other than a top heavy fraction after checking and rechecking. Turns out I was doing them right - some of them anyway going by what everyone said on here.

    I spent so long checking and rechecking my working that I started to run out of time and rushed the rest....

    I am really upset and frustrated! :-(

    Actually, I found it quite easy. Nothing hard about it really. Hopefully I will get 100 UMS

    Yes I thought it was quite hard and rushed towards the end.

    Hey, what exam board were you doing?

    I couldn't even do Everything from Q.7 onward was a just crazy, i couldn't even do Q.8.
    Guess ill be retaking that again because Edexcel are *******s.
