    honestly I think I GOT LIKE 55/75.....
    **** my entire life.

    i think I got near perfect on c1 (As expected) but *if* I get near perfect on stats do you still think overall I can get an A?
    55 would be around 70 ums plus 100 ums from C1 is 170 ums
    240-170=70

    It's possible with a low B, just make sure you get at least A in stats and no reason why you shouldn't get A overall

    Anyone get -1648 as the coefficient of x^10?
    It rings a bell! Got around that

    Please don't worry I resat Core 2 today, and I found it equally as awful. Don't just rely on the unofficial mark schemes because we can't be sure how many marks are method etc. Don't give up!😊 I feel exactly the same.

    its just so bloody frustrating, i gave it everything i revised well over 2 months before the exam and did every question in the book, yet im prone to so many daft mistakes.

    How about 66 in C1 and around 61-63 in C2? Is an A still likely?

    Hope so, I got around 63 in C1 and probably 66 in this one.

    Yeah definitely, just one more A in your other module and that's an A overall.

    I hope you're right lol Don't really want to have to resit next year. Guess it depends on the grade boundaries since I'm borderline A/B on both papers and I'd hate it if I were a mark or two off an A for both.

    9 a) was 3^(m/2 -6n)
    Do you know what the question was? I feel like I got m/2 -3n and I'm not sure how

    Perimeter was 13.8 to 3.s.f

    Note premature rounding may have skewed accuracy

    r=√(19.9/0.586) = 5.82743892

    Side 1→ 9 – 5.82743892 = 3.17256108
    Side 2 → 8 – 5.82743892 = 2.17256108
    Arc Length = rθ = 3.414879207
    Unaffected length of 5

    Perimeter = [Side 1] + [Side 2] + [Arc Length] + [Unaffected Length]

    Perimeter = 13.76000137

    To 3 s.f = 13.8
    How many marks would I get for working out the perimeter of the sector instead of the shaded region? Such a stupid mistake

    Did anyone else get the binomial expansion answer as something like -1000 something it was like -1280 idk tho something around there?
    Think the answer was -1648

    Updated - Unofficial Mark Scheme.

    Made a few errors so here it is:


    1. b) a=-2
    2. b) x=-0.861
    c) reflection in y-axis
    3. a) 3x^-1/2 - 1
    b) y=6
    c) y + 2x = 13
    d) k = 5.5
    4. b) d = -2, a = 28
    c) Sum to 21 - sum to 3. Can't remember exact.
    5. b) area = 19.9
    c) perimeter = 13.8 (something like that)
    6. a) 65.6
    b) i) translation (0,5)
    ii) stretch in X-direction 1/3 sf
    7. b) -1648
    8. b) can't remember! Tan(X) = 1 and tan(X) =-5/4
    c) lowest = 2, when theta = pi
    9. a) c^(m/2 -6n)
    b) X = 5/2

    For 4)c) I believe it was just the sum formula by using n=18 (21-4+1) and since you know the first value "a" and the difference "d" you can just plug it into the formula
    S18=18/2 times 2a...? Could be wrong but going with it

    I'm sorry for my generic reply but it really does depend on what you worked out and did or did not do.

    For that specific 6 mark questions I expect the marks to be divided into:

    M4
    B1
    A1

    Thereby divided into:

    ½r^2θ = ½absinC – ½r^2θ → r^2(θ) = ½absinC –M1

    r= √(½absinC/θ) → {No loss of accuracy i.e. no participation in premature rounding} – M1

    Note μ , δ and σ represent a candidate's answer
    9 – r = μ
    8 – r = δ

    For the above B1

    rθ = σ – M1

    Perimeter = μ + δ + σ + 5 – M1

    Perimeter to 3 significant figures – A1

    That's how I believe the marks will be split, of course they are my interpretation of the distribution of marks [Which I'm pretty confident about but of course not entirely sure]

    You can judge from above how many marks you may have gained/lost. But please, please, please take it with a pinch of salt.

    You have one more Maths exam left and you should not let yourself be downhearted about what may have happened today. Continue to revise, smash that applied module and results day may not be as bad as you may think. Good luck!
