# Edexcel A2 C4 Mathematics June 2015 - Official Thread watch

probably not :/ bad luck mate there is always next year
Do not say that; C3 boundaries will be lower, and even with C4 boundaries it is still a potential A*.

It was only 3 marks but how many would I lose
4. An A at 59 would be absolutely brilliant
5. So on the last question, I had everything right until I changed one of the limits from 81, 1 to 81, 0... BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER LOL (I used u as substitution so u=3^2x, when x=2, u=3^4=81 and when x=0, u=3^0=1) This meant that my final answer was 27pi/2ln(3) (I cross multiplied to make the denominator the same). This meant my fraction could not cancel down to the correct answer of 13pi/ln(3). My volume for the cone was correct as well. Anyone think I'll only lose 2 marks for that question?

As I had the correct limits before but I did not correctly substitute the correct limits, I'm guessing I would lose A1 (no M marks lost because my integration was all correct until the limit substitution), and a another A1 for not getting the correct final answer when the two volumes were subtracted from eachother?

7. I got the answer T=27.1 and wrote (degrees) and I also wrote the answer in radians with working out next to it but in smaller writing :/ any chance of getting all the marks? :/
8. How many ums would 30/100 be ;/
9. I have a few questions:

1) how many marks do I lose if I found K as 2 and continued so I got the area as half? Out of the total 8 marks of the question.

2) For the differential equation I found c correctly but at the end I couldn't get the final answer they wanted even doe part A was right. How many marks would I lose out of the 7?

3) for the years question how many marks do I lose if I did the question in degrees?

4) for the vector question how many marks do I get (if any) if I found the position vector of B for the shortest distance?

5) for the cone question, do you get one mark for writing V=pi integral of y2? Also due to a lack of time I went to write what I would do instead of doing it, but I wrote the radius will be 9 for the cone et and you do integral until 2 minus the volume of cone from Q to P?

with Calculus it always has to be radians. degrees would be incorrect because that's just how maths works. I imagine you'd only lose 1 mark, though.

11. The paper was okay but it just wasn't working for me, I lost stupid marks in easy places which is grinding my gears. C3 was really good but this meh C4 had ruined the A* for me. *sigh*

are you dumb blud?
I guess we'll find out in August. Remind me. I want to know if you are? Who even uses the word blud. Don't respond . Have a lovely day.

Someone got it!
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend,
Somewhere along in the Calculus.
I would have stayed up
Performing integrals all night,
But I know,
It's hard to revise.

I'd lose a mark even though you're telling me I'm right?:b

Also thanks for all the responses guys! Most of my little heart attack is over now
15. How many marks would you lose for muddling up in the last stage of integration and taking away a wrong value for the cone volume ??????
16. (Original post by toddmcnugget)
Oh no, another one of these people. I'm not going to go through the effort of checking if another user is male or female, they is too confusing because English is a dumb language. Should I start using the Xe pronouns and conform to tumblrinas?
??? they isn't really that confusing and is even completely grammatically correct in this context and doesn't require you to 'check' anything.
17. What's the bets Arsey's sitting there thinking, why the **** is the answer "Math Error" then after 10 minutes he reads the question again lol.
18. (Original post by ArkadiusBear)
For part 8b, when integrating the 3^2x (or 9^x) did the final value come out as 40pi/ln(3) ?
The answer was 13pi/ln3, I think you forgot to take away the volume of the cone.
19. Both c3 and 4 very easy can't wait for results day!!!
c1- 86 ums
c2- 67 ums
s1- 69/75 marks
m1- 52/75 marks
c3- 52/75 marks
c4- 60/75 marks
?
