1. Does anyone remember the e^(2-6t) questions and what it asked and stuff? I'm trying to explain to my friend but I can't temper thanks ðŸ˜Š
2. (Original post by joef1337)
Yeah but I simplified that as 4(1, -3, -5) and used that for the rest of the question as a direction vector, because multiplying it by a constant doesn't change its direction, but for the last part I forgot to use the "real" AB and instead used my simplified version of (1, -3, -5)
Basically I did the (2,0,-1) +-1/6(4,-12,-20) to get C and D.
3. Please can someone explain how 0.5e^4 was the answer to when t=2/3

Yep, that's what I did except it was (2, 0, -1) +- 1/6 (1, -3, -5), which is wrong.

Although now that people are saying the first coord of D should have been 4, I'm beginning to doubt your way too...
5. I got the right value for AB and the right equation of a line but my vectors didn't intersect anyone my values were like 2 and 1/2 for mu and lambda anyone have issue with that question?

Exactly; thats why im asking how it was meant to be done and no one is bloody replying.

Chek my post ive posted the paper qusstions
8. (Original post by so over it)
It's awful isn't it I never thought I'd be praying for a D grade in a real exam I like to think that there's still a chance of getting an A but then again I don't want to get my hopes up. My insurance will accept me with a B but nonetheless it's heartbreaking to know that that grade isn't a true reflection of my abilities. How about yours? Hopefully it all turns out okay for us!
It is pretty terrible. It is awful when teachers refer to you as an A* student and after the exam you can't even look in their eyes.
I am so glad ,however, that I chose a university that should take me with a B in maths as a firm over the one asking for an A*, seems like the gut feeling saved my ass here. This just proves how unreliable such exams are. The good thing is at the university lecturers will not put something that their students weren't told about in the exam, as opposed to an A-level which is written by some deluded cock.

Can anyone please tell me how many marks I would lose for doing the trig question in radians instead of degrees ?? Would I lose like 3 marks ?
All the marks on the paper

11. (Original post by Nofajshgdjdj)
All the marks on the paper
2 marks max or given its correct in radians maybe 1
Marks were for
Identity
Two brackets
Cos= -1/6 and 1
Two marks for correct solutions
12. I've posted my unofficial mark scheme in a separate thread to make it easier for people to find.

13. You must divide the top of the fraction by the bottom of the fraction and it will give you an x coefficient a number for b and a remainder which is the top of the final fraction
14. (Original post by Parhomus)
Haha personally lol I never finished the vectors
15. (Original post by C0balt)
yes, c was pi
I got the implicit differentiation right (2sec^x = 3x) and used sec^ = 1 + tan^2, but I got k=2 not 6. I got the integral in part b right, just had 1/2tan^-1(3x/2) and not 1/6. Would I get 2/3 on first and 7/7 on second for follow on marks?

16. Can someone say what ums I would be on. I got around 55 in C3 and 66 in C4

17. I messed up the coefficients for A and B in first question but i answered the the binomial correctly using my incorrect A and B, will I only lose the marks for incorrect coefficients?

BTW: Did anyone get 1/3 and 5/3 for lambda values?
18. Bye bye uni
19. Can people put any links to good unofficial mark schemes and/or questions not just by topic

theta between 0 and 360 exclusive so youd have to have a statement ignoring costheta= 1
