What did you get for Q7 for the value of a?

If that's a solid 64/75 then I would like to think you've got an A in the bag, though we can't be sure untill the grade boundaries come out.
Good job nevertheless

Nice. 100UMS if they will allow me to say that the lines are in the same direction instead of that they are parallel. Also I didn't prove it as I thought it was obvious from the graph.

Chin up mate it ain't over yet. The A-Level consists of 6 modules, all of equal weight.
Best of luck, if you need help PM me

I swear it's in the solutions..

-1 Because it has to be "real" Therefore the imaginary party had to be equal to zero Hence finding that 4a+4 = 0 therefore a=-4/4

Just clarifying a=-1 is the correct answer right?

75/75 for me then... As usual

A lot of people got different answers for that Q.
11. Does it matter that I didn't do this step in the first proof by induction:

Is Arsey a math's teacher??

I did my FP1 last year, for the answers check Arsey's first post, its legit.

Is Arsey a student or?

Thanks tho, appreciated what did you get for fp1 last yr?
16. Arsey what Mark would I get if I got the value of A wrong but then I got the corresponding parts right for my value of a? So like I got the mod and arg right for it and the argand right for my value and the last part of the geometrical thing wrong

Same, I said they were parallel as I could tell that the gradients were the same but I didnt write down me working out the gradients. Plus the question said to "describe" so I didnt think it was necessary

Is Arsey definitely right for that Q for the value of a ??
19. I just want to clarify, do you drop a mark if you say the segments are parallel and show that they are parallel but not one is twice the length of the other. Thats the only thing stopping me from getting full marks looooooooooooooooooool.

Does it matter that I didn't do this step in the first proof by induction:

To me, if you missed out that step, it would make your proof seem counterintuitive. You would've went from having two fractions which could be added, to taking them away.

It could go either way. Considering it was only worth 5 marks, it would suggest to me that this year's proofs are low on the method marks for the inductive step. This means you could get away with it, given the rest of your proof is correct.

But equally, they may have stopped awarding a mark for one of the previous steps in proof questions.

In summary, nobody will be able to tell you. The exam is over with and you will only find out when the mark schemes are released this Summer.
