# Edexcel C2 20th May 2015 *Official Thread* watch

1. (Original post by lulupixie)
did you find it bad too? i hope my S1 is good enough to handle whatever Edexcel decide to throw at us next
Yeah, I found it quite horrible actually. I felt like i was constantly flicking from page to page trying to find a question i would be able to answer...and I missed parts of questions too. Just bleurgh.

Yeah-Im hoping for exactly the same thing.

2. Guys surely 9b is £484 not £483 cos when you subbed in r as 2.9something it was £483.48 so they would need at least £484 to cover the cost fully as £483 will be to little to cover the cost as you would be 48p short
and
i don't think you would have to factorize k=4cos^2x +3cosx and it was only 3 marks and knowing 4sin^2x = 4(1-cos^2x) and then simplifying that is at least 2 marks and it was -4cos^2x -3cosx=-k and times that by -1 to get k=4cos^2x +3cosx should be the final accuracy mark, factorizing would need at least 2 marks because it wasn't simple
3. Thing i dont get is, of this is the last year to do this spec, then how are we supposed to retake next year?

Guys, does anyone remember the mark allocation for the trig question?
The question on sin/cos/& k? There were 3 parts A B & C with (3) Marks each

This feedback is very surprising

yeah same, i got m as 3. Then tangent has negative reciprocal, so i put it as -1/3. But I don't think I got the equation with +14, I think I got +11 I'm not sure how/why

I got this also! I got gradient of tangent to be -1/3 and +11 too
