1. I noticed there isn't an MPC4 thread, so if anyone wants a cheeky discussion about the exam then this is the place
2. The exam is only a week away tomorrow - how's everyone feeling?
3. should be good, as long as don't do stuff like 2-2 is 2
Who else finds C4 easier than C3?
I actually find Core 4 slightly harder than core 3 myself

I would agree

It's probably because I enjoy the partial fractions, differentials and intergration in C4

What about vectors? They can be a bit hit and miss with me.
7. Anyone can answer this question:
Prove
$\frac{cosx}{1-tanx} + \frac{sinx}{1-cotx} = sinx + cosx$

and

$(cotx + cosecx)^2 = \frac{1+cosx}{1-cosx}$
8. Anyone got any hard questions on vectors apart from those in exam papers

try step vectors
10. Look at different exam boards, maybe?

11. Ready to get shafted in this after C3.

+1 --- Hopefully they made C4 easier to balance it out (fingers crossed)... Totally un-confident in past paper revision for it now though!!!??? Better learn the syllabus in 10 different languages just incase
13. Stay positive!

I think they're going to make it 4/4 for tough papers this year unfortunately
15. This is definitely an afternoon exam, yeah?

Yes
17. Core 3 exam makes me think of the 8 mark vector question that's probably gonna come up or some kind of shape question that doesn't need to be in the paper

Can anybody give a quick explanation of how to do these shape kind of vectors? Are there any specific places to start or things to look for or things to remember? Never sure where to begin with these.

Na it'll just give you shapes with parallel, perpendicular lines or two lines that have equal length etc

20. After seeing c3, Im telling you now there will probably be vectors to do with the shape of stamford bridge or even scaffolding.
