What people are saying about A-level Maths Paper 1 on The Student Room

I don’t know how to feel about this paper tbh. I messed up that vectors one, the sum to infinity, and got quite close to the q15s quotient rule question but didn’t quite get it.


Paper 2 gonna be horrendous
There was no parametric
Differential equations
Definite integral


the differentiation in the last question was awful, i didn’t have time to do the whole thing
