If you got a mid C and a mid D, you would need 90UMS on stats to get an A.
how about if i want a B ?

Meant a B, sorry. An A is impossible, as you would need 120UMS.

Haha thanks and may you get an A in your S1!

If you tried to multiply coefficients together and used the right numbers for both the binomial expansions, you'll get at least 2 method marks out of 5 but all depends on how harsh the mark scheme is
I swear that wasn't 5 marks, I timed the wrong coefficients

Depends but last years paper was 58 and i found this years a lot more challenging so around 56-58, but it all depends on how well people have done
if i got 66 in core 1 and 61 in core 2 do i have a chance at an A?

rather be dumb than up my own arse xx
going to report you to the moderators of the forums. don''t need this sort of language in the thread.
I got K = -5.5 because the line needed to shift rightwards
The way you do it; you just sub in -k into the right side of the equation with the x in it to get something like y-5=-2(x-4-k) and then plug in the values at M and solve for K. Which was something like 11/2.

How was the expansion question done , when expanded I got x^10 to be like -18144 !
7b) find the coefficient of x10 in the expansion of (1-2x)5 * (2+x)7 answer = -1648 [5 marks]

I'm pretty sure the answer was negative of that

Ah yes thank you for spotting that

no, im talking aobut marks
13. Would it question 9. a) not be c^(m/2-6n)? As it was a division and so we would have to minus the indices?

You're easily in for an A then if your marks are right!

What does everyone think the grade boundaries will be like? Lower or higher than last year?
Personally i think lower due to the fact that a lot of people struggled. Some questions were really strangle and sneaky, especially compared to previous papers and if you were not prepared i think you would have struggled.

how many marks was 9a. worth?
4 marks for a) and 4 marks for b)
Question 9. had a sum of 8 marks (:
17. (Original post by Chickenslayer69)
Yeah I got -1648😊 What did people get for the last logs question?
I got that too 😄
18. (Original post by Chickenslayer69)
Yes - for 0.5^x when x is lower, the value increases, so it's the other way around.

You will get 1 mark for stating the y intercept, yes.
Thanks!
