# Edexcel FP2 Official 2016 Exam Thread - 8th June 2016 watch

1. (Original post by Student403)
Apologies I thought that was trivial......
Though sound trivial but it would be helpful just in case someone isn't sure on the selection of modules into calculation of A* in FM..
2. For the last question first part I wrote it as 0.722, -0.722 or something rather than plus/ minus arcosh(0.75). Would that still get marks cause it didn't say in exact form?
3. Just watched the Hitler video, lol.

Seen the paper any thoughts? Boundary predictions? :P
5. arsey make a mark scheme!!

64/65 for an A or A*?
A* I'm hoping. I think 64/75 is fairly standard mark for an A grade. So maybe a few marks lower for an A grade for this paper. 60/75 for an A perhaps?
7. For the De Moivre's theorem question, did you need to start by showing that z^n - z^-n = 2i sin theta? I just quoted it
8. (Original post by DrownedDeity)
Question didn't ask you to show it.
But it said 'Using De Moivre's Theorem'. Technically, z^n -z^-n = 2i sin theta is not De Moivre's Theorem, it's an application of it.

arsey make a mark scheme!!
Arsey's been told off by Edexcel for making them, he's posted somewhere on TSR (can't remember where sorry) that he'll stop making them out of respect for Edexcel.

I showed it just in case, cause doing the question without it would not have used de Moivre's

Ok, would I have lost all the marks for not doing this?
12. someone needs to make a markscheme

Hey Arsey, what do you think the A* boundary will be for this paper?
14. (Original post by sunsri101)

IIRC it was 5 marks, wasn't it? I'd say 2-3 marks tops.

Also, for the polar area question, I did C1-C2 instead of C1+C2, giving me an answer of 15ish instead of the 32.5 that most people seem to have got. If all the following working was correct, How many marks might I lose (I think that part Q was 7 marks)

Yes it was. OK, thanks

You would get marks for integrating correctly and substituting limits. So I would have thought that you would get 4/7

Okay, thanks! How did you find the exam?

Being pedantic: z^(n) - z^(-n) = 2i sin (n theta)

Any application of the theorem would be classed as 'using' the theorem. After all, the method only works if the theorem does too.

I also did that, they might not give credit for it but it's better to be safe than sorry

Yeah true, hopefully they give us full credit :/
