Anyone know if the UMS needed for an A* needs to be 90% in C3 and separately 90% in C4 or can it be a combined total of the two?
Combined total of the two. What does everyone reckon full UMS would be for this paper? Lots of silly mistakes

Combined total

y = e / (2(1-x)^1/2(1-ln(2(1-x)^1/2))) ?
yep, I got it in a scummy way, hopefully the examiner sees my final answer and just presumes that i'm a genius and found it in my head, even though I essentially guessed what it was with some bs working

what was the binomial expanasion answer i got a really messy one ayone else?
I got something like 2+11x-2x^2

Im pretty sure it is combined
6. just realised i left 0 and 360 in for the trig 5 marker but the range was 0<x<360 lol

Eh i must of done it completley wrong? i got loads of fractions?
8. Eh think I finished maths on a B, needed an A, rip <.<

k was 2 right? For the d theta/dx question?
I got k=2! But some people I know got k=6 :/

It's the combined total! :-)

Did you get a and b in part before as like 5/2, and 9/2 (one of them was minus but can't remember which)?

I got this too
is that the same as y=e/(x-1)^0.5(1-ln(4-4x))

Usually they just ignore extra ones not in the range, but I'm wondering if they were being sneaky here.

Uuurgh so annoyed core 3 went really well for me but this didn't. Hope my core 3 ums brings me up to A* :/ For the integration question I got 9/2ln3 -69/2, but this comes up as a negative number.. Have I done it wrong?
It didn't ask for area, so you're fine

yeahh then i got -1 + something -22/3x^2

It wanted it in the form of e/ ( f(x) ln (f(x)) or similar, so the f(x) had to be the same.

I got that too because I stupidly took the 12e^-2 to the top instead of leaving the 12 on the bottom -.-
yeah that's what I did, I assumed 1/e^-2 = e^2 lol how many marks do you think we lost for that?

Probably two - a method mark and an accuracy mark🙄

You and me both hopefully wont get penalised too heavily though

it's the average of the two, for instance 85 in c3 and 95 in c4 would still get you an A*
