    I think it is. It depends on the EXACT wording of the question. If it said, 'using the factor theorem, find the remainder of' or if it said just 'find the remainder'
    it said using the remainder theorem and I used polynomial division but got the correct answer.

    Because 90ums is an A* , but you cant get an A* this year. 68 UMS will probably be 50 marks. as 100 ums will be about 73/74

    68 is never gonna be appropriate for an A so as far as I'm concerned, the criticism is apt.

    Yeah, question 9 and 8 alone accounted for a lot of marks, many did not even do 9.

    It's been 67/75 before (June 2006) and this paper was much easier than that one not just subjectively but with collective opinion
