    For the transformation P I put the wrong angle but I still put rotation about origin, so would I get 1 out of 2 marks, and for thw geometrical transformation of QR and OP I put enlargement by 2 and translation by a vector, would that get any marks?

    I've never seen the FP1 100UMS boundary be less than 75, hmm
    Me either but I think (hope) the difficulty of this paper warrants it

    i would imagine it is 1 mark for sf = 2 and one mark for parallel
    Hey Arsey,

    What do you think the grade boundaries will be like this year for FP1?

    Cheers.

    I did Worse than I thought, 67/75.
    Don't let that get blown out of proportion - try and get a 100 in the rest of your exams.

    Will 63/64 most likely be an A on this paper considering how the majority are finding it

    the average mark for an A from all FP1 papers is 63.4 so borderline

    I would have thought considering this paper and last years paper that this Mark should be an A, considering last years paper was more straightforward

    The highest it has ever been was 62 and the majority found it slightly harder than previous years' papers.

    Why was last year's two proof by induction question worth 6 marks each but this year the proof were only worth 5 marks? Any reason in particular? They're pretty similar proofs
    i think the examiners change the marks for proof by induction based on what the other marks are for the other questions. say they had made the paper but it was out of 73, they'd need to add two marks in. which i think they'd probably just make the proof by induction worth two more marks. i've seen proof's by inductions worth 4-8 marks when really theyre not loads different

    forgot to write twice the length, i just calculated both gradients and they were the same. Thought it would be enough.

    substituted p=+root2 into the wrong equation at the end hahaha.

    Found this much easier than C1 tbh.
