AQA A2 Mathematics Pure Core 4 MPC4 - 17th June 2016 Watch

1. I cant believe i couldnt get a point of intersection for the vector question! I know how to do them but somehow my values from the simultaneous equations kept showing that they are skewed ...pretty upset to the point that i couldnt think straight for part c)

Might have just missed out on an A* then - damn!
I might have just got a B haha
3. Anyone remember the equation you had to split into partial fractions for the first question?

I was so scared whilst doing first 5 questions because they were too nice and I was so convinced that the paper must have some nightmarish question lol
Glad to have been proven wrong.

Everything was very standard until question 7 imo. The vector geometry question had a strange arrangement but the difficulty was the same as every other recent vector geometry questions.

Question 7 algebra was slightly more involved than usual but nothing out of ordinary.

Question 8 would've been very difficult for non fp2 students had they not told us to rearrange the tan^-1(3x/2), but they pointed us towards the right direction so it was doable. The following differential equation was not the simplest one ever but at least it did not involve double parts like that C3.

I expect very average gb
Agreed - it was a paper on par with last years, maybe slightly lower but I wouldn't expect much more than that. I haven't done FP2 and the last question was perfectly fine

Did anyone do the vestors?
I got (0, -5/3, -5/3) and (4, ?, ?)
Can't remember the 4 one
I think I got (0, 10/3, -5/3) and (4, -10/3, 1/3)

What do you think 63/64 marks would be UMS wise?
If you go off of those boundaries they're similar to Jun13 so about 93/94 ums

I personally would think the boundaries would be a tad higher, only by about 1 or two marks though.
Either way you'd probably still have an A/A*
7. Range for the validity of x on question 1?
8. and -69/2 + 9/2ln3?

Range for the validity of x on question 1?
Mod X < 0.5?

No it is 331 days because at exactly 330 days, the half life hasn't yet been achieved so you have to do it to the next day :-)
It said to the nearest day in the question !

and -69/2 + 9/2ln3?
Yep
12. I am totally destroyed by C4. goodbye uni

Aye I suppose that's true. I sat last year's paper and this year's was harder in my opinion personally.
I thought this years was harder too

I might have just got a B haha
This year has been so hard with AQA exams :/
14. (Original post by Jm098)
and -69/2 + 9/2ln3?
YES!
15. (Original post by Mowerharvey)
That's what I got
Same I got 13/35 too
16. Does anyone know how to do 8a?
I got 12/8+9x^2
Wasn't sure what i did wrong.
17. (Original post by JamieG1009)
I think I got (0, 10/3, -5/3) and (4, -10/3, 1/3)
Damn it I was so confident about that :/
18. (Original post by Jm098)
and -69/2 + 9/2ln3?
I got this
19. (Original post by Yo12345)
Yep
I swear the purposely engineer questions to output answers with 69
20. (Original post by Jm098)
Mod X < 0.5?
Thats what i got, thanks👍
