# Edexcel June 2016 FP2 UK (and IAL) Solutions

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
1. Hey!

The solutions for the UK Edexcel June 2016 FP2 paper can be found here.

Seems like a standard paper overall bar the massively ugly polar coordinates question. Expecting slightly lower boundaries than previous years.

Cheers,
Zacken.

Decent paper. Massively ugly answers which can create a sense of doubt, but easy to double check using a calculator. Nine questions so pretty long. Boundaries might be similar to IAL 14 since that was also a 9 question paper.
4. Thanks Zacken

7. 68/69 A* ?

For 3b, did we have to draw the lines connecting the 4 points?

Nope, definitely not!

Nope, definitely not!
Thanks! & Thanks for the mark scheme

68/69 A* ?
I'd say 68 yeah
12. Thanks for these
13. Thank you. How many marks would I lose for forgetting to work out c on 4ia? I also made a slip in subtraction, using a different method to you, at the very end of 4ii which meant all my answers where wrong by a factor of -1, I'm hoping just 1 mark (I was so happy with my method too).

Otherwise, I'm confident with getting the marks for every other question aslong as the examiner checks the last page I wrote on for my second attempt at polar coordinates. Also, would the examiner allow me to use A for the angle at which they intersect rather than 0.72 whatever, I did state A = 0.72..
14. For 2B, how many marks do you think i'd get for spotting the pattern in the fractions, doing 1/2 - 1/n+2 however nothing else, not doing the sum of r-3 ?
Thanks for the MS!
15. thanks!! I can't remeber what the question stated. is it fine if I don't state which one is p and which on is q for 8a
16. On Q3 I think i did the argument values in the range -pi to pi instead of 0 to 2pi, can anyone remember if it stated to do it in pi to 2pi? Thanks
Thanks Zacken

67/68 for an A* sounds about right but I know as much as you, honestly.

Drop 1 mark in 4(i) (a) and 1-2 marks in 4(b).

Yes, I used myself. No marks dropped.

Drop 2/3 marks.

Probably. I can't see them docking any marks for that.

It didn't state any range. You will get full marks.
19. Any predictions for the 100 boundary? Zacken

Maybe 74. Probably 75.
