    how did everyone find the further maths exam today?

    I think it went pretty well! I made up some kind of random proof for the last question, but other than that I think I knew how to do all of the questions.

    What about you?

    Pretty good, I think I got most of them apart from the cos theta is obtuse one which I just didn't understand!

    Me either! i didnt answer it. but now i know that you were meant to use the trigonometry identities so doing 1 - sin^2 theta = cos^2 theta.
    I also didnt get that we were meant to use the cosine rule on the last question.

    i did most of them apart from the minimum point with the value K, and the obtuse angle one

    Most of the questions were alright tbh, I realised in the last 30 seconds that it was cosine rule and went on a mad one at the paper trying to complete it. But to no avail. Does anyone know where I can find the unofficial mark scheme for it?
