    I would have said it was harder than past papers, but I don't think I dropped a great deal of marks. The problem for me was not knowing the rates of convergence (i.e. for Simpson's rule)
    Well that's exactly what a couple of people I asked said, they complained about the rates of convergence questions.

    "I think I'll look on TSR for an unofficial mark scheme for the NM exam now"

    *finds out no one takes this unit*
    I cry... :,(

    Anyways! I think this exam was quite straight forward compared to some of the more recent past papers. I fear the grade boundaries will be relatively high. I cry...

    Where I'll probably lose marks:
    The last question -> the explaining bits about the rates of convergence of the different sums
    I believe this final question was the hardest on the paper as it required a higher level of understanding of the concept of convergence.
