    The markscheme for C1 was up by now..?
    I heard that the person who usually puts up unofficial mark schemes on here said we are going to have to wait a day or two because he's struggling with the paper...

    My answers (as far as I remember):
    Q1) 1024 - 1280x + 720x^2
    2.a) (x-2)^2 + (y+1)^2 = 20
    b) x - 2y - 14 = 0
    3.a) B-A = 48 (show that)
    b) A = -96, B = -48
    c) 3(2x+1)(x+4)(x-4)
    4.a) Used cosine rule to show = 0.906
    b) 40.9
    c) 96.7
    5.a) r = 8/9
    b) a = 18
    c) n = 28
    6.a) 4x^5/2 - 10x^2 + C
    b) 226
    7.i) 0.264 (Vague memory of this)
    ii) y = 3/2 and y = 1/3
    8.i) pi/9, 4pi/9, 7pi/9
    ii.a) k = 1+- sqrt (1+16k) / 8
    ii.b) x = 0, 138.6, 221.4
    9.a) Show that question (find h from value for V sub into formula for SA)
    b) C = £483
    c) d^2C/dr^2 = 12pi + 600/r^3 is greater than 0 as r = cube root 25 ---> Minimum
    Unfortunately quite a few did 9b incorrect. It gave an answer greater than 483 but people rounded down, rather than up - not enough to pay for polishing or whatever the hell it was

    Everyone being optimistic about the grade boundaries being low needs to get a reality check. Grade boundaries will 100 percent not be lower than 61 for an A. This exact thing happened last year, people signed petitions and ****. The papers for every subject are getting harder. Last year I flopped but since I've done c3 and c4 this was a walk in the park and many other A2 students would agree therefore boosting the grade boundaries.
    This.

    I'm self-teaching A-level maths on my gap year so I've learnt the A2 units too and ngl I think that's made C1 and C2 seem simpler. I thought this paper was average to sub-average in difficulty, but according to the poll on tsr it was a tricky paper.

    Not really when you look at how many people sit the exam, also the type of students who use Studentroom as a revision tool tend to be smart, hard working students.
    Hence why its sometimes not the best place to come for reassurance.
    I have allowed for skew
    I agree that the "moaners will vote first and they will be very loud.
    But I am looking at the comments of established users rather than new users.
    Any poll/survey also carries error.

    I agree with all your answers, although I dropped 2 marks probably on the k question because I didn't read it and was looking at the next question aha

    So here is my answer
    Q1: 1024-1280x+720x square
    Q2: (x-2) square -(y+1) square= 20
    Part b i got gradient =1/2, x-2y-14=0
    Q3: A=-96,B=-48
    Fractorise =3(x-4)(x+4)(2x+1)
    Q4:40.9 perimeter and 96.7 area
    Q5: r=8/9,a=18,n=28
    Q6=32+194=226
    Q7:y=1/3 or y=3/2
    Q8i/9,4pi/9,7pi/9
    Cosx=1+/- square root of (1+16k) devided by 8
    X=0, x=136.8 or 138.6 something,x=221.4
    Q9: 483

    in my opinion, people who tend to use TSR are either those who find the papers difficult and want to express their anger :awesome: or those who find the papers easy and want to share their answers to the world :dance:. so basically it's a diverse group of people.
