Nothing usually. The examiners will be able to work it out, might not even notice it, having it there just makes it easier.

Anyone remember the question for the sum to 60 thing?
It was something times log8(4) but can't remember the something
I think the something was r(2r+3) not sure though
6. Amendments have been made to the unofficial mark scheme, which is now here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...php?p=56620729

7. For 3bii. and biii How did you find the quadratic and therefore the value? This was the only question I didn't know how to do.
8. What do you reckon the grade boundary for an A will be? It was 55 last year but most seem to think this paper was harder

The quadratic factor is (z- (root 1))(z - (root 2)) using the two roots you've been given.

Cool I wanted to reattempt to see where I made an error
11. on the matrix question, B^17, i left my answer as a decimal (92681.9) for all the entries, do you think ill get marks for this or did it have to be in surd form?

I did exactly the same thing
13. I found it okay, some lovely questions in it even if that does make me a massive geek! Made some stupid careless errors like saying that r=1/2 in the log question but hopefully got follow through marks :/ hoping for high 90s-100 UMS

Yeah I found it a nice paper overall! I can see how it's harder than previous years - I would expect low grade boundaries - but not a bad exam fortunately

I'd have enjoyed that paper IF it wasn't my actual exam.
16. Anyone remember how many marks that Newton Raphson was?

It's down in the unofficial markscheme as 3 which sounds right to me

how many marks do you think i get for finding f(40) and f'(40) but getting the final answer wrong due to having first x approximation as 1 (I know, don't know what happened to my brain)

There's usually a method mark for finding f'(x), so at least one, obviously no more than two as the final answer is incorrect, but otherwise I'm not sure what they'd do!
20. How many marks do you think it'll be for 100 UMS? It was 69 last year
