Try not to facepalm lmao
Could you do cumulative best-worst please?

2b) Managed to get 24,16; -24,-16.

Don't know how..

managed to get

And sub in etc etc
Probably arithmetic error somewhere..
(Out of 6)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
6b) Stupid error.

Integrated

as

(Out of 3)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7b)
(Found )

Here's where the nerves kicked in.

Then I wrote 'divide by 3' and wrote the answer (last second panic guess)
(That question is out of 7.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7c) used 4000..(Out of 3)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8a) I left my answer as

Which is the same answer just not simplified. As they question just asked for the 'exact value'(That was out of 4.)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8b) (rookie mistake incoming)

And integrated that correctly to get an incorrect answer.

You're probably laughing lmao.
Still don't know, and probably never will know what possessed me to forget that you had to square y and multiply the integral by pi.
(out of 6)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks.

Think I won't be able to get an A* unfortunately, unless the grade boundaries are ridiculously low.
Angry with myself for making the most stupidest mistakes lol, f**cked up a golden opportunity.
I don't know what it is, but with the C3 and C4 exams I was really really nervous..
Leading to the most stupidest mistakes ever.

Absolutely gutted
give me 5 minutes or so

The bad news is that that is a lot of marks

The good news is that the paper might be harder than I originally thought.
I will try to do the solutions to this paper myself (only then I can truly establish difficulty) as some of my students have asked me. One of my students is distraught because unless he gets A* in Maths he cannot go to University.
I can only do this on Thursday when I am completely off.

best case -11
worse case -13

I hope it is not as bad as you think.

EDIT: I am answering myself ... long day

C3: 60-63
C4: 62-63

Safe to assume I will not be getting and A* unfortunately.
My offer is AAA but what I'm most upset about is if I had done those papers in my free time at home I would've probably got 70+ in both..

Pressure is something we all feel ...
Wait for the results and let us hope the only damage is to the ego rather than the University entry.

Should realistically have a good chance of getting an A though, right?

I think A is safe

I think A is safe
I think I'll be sitting S2 to keep my A in FM AS because if all else fails in S2 they'll probably swap it with M1 which I probably hit 90+ in..

Thanks for your help, would rep but it won't let me

Do you mind telling me how many marks you think I will get for the following :6b) Left the answer as pi+ root3/2 + pi/3. IDIOT!7c) Put in 4000 and then stopped at the point Arsey realised he made the mistake in his solutions.8b) I only figured out the volume of the cone.

Thanks
6b you may lose 1 or get away with it
7c you may lose 2 or possibly 3
8b ifyou only found the volume of the cone you will lose 5

Haha much calmer can you help me?

I made a very stupid mistake in 5a) and instead of differentiating one of the terms I saw 1/t and integrated it how many marks does this lose.

2) also made a mistake when subbing in the bounds in q8

Have a picture I found for you Attachment 430571

Posted from TSR Mobile
5a loses max 2 (M1A1)
8b may lose 1 (or 2)
(more likely 1 mark as there are only 6 marks total, so losing 2 is extremely harsh)
13. (Original post by Dylann)
If I used degrees and got 27.1 will I lose all 3 marks or will I lose just 1? I don't take further maths so my "understanding" of maths perhaps isn't that great and I've never thought about degrees vs radians in calculus, and I can't remember anyone ever saying we should use radians. 27.1 years seemed a reasonable answer for a population question too. Will they be lenient?

And I also wrote 7.45 rather than 7.46 for the last vector length question...will I lose my accuracy mark or again do you think they'll be lenient?

Thanks.
marking schemes are pre-produced as provisional ...
A sample of questions is then marked.the purpose of that is to see things such as:

a large proportion of student interpreting a certain part a question incorrectly
tending to make the same type of mistake in another part etc

then the marking scheme is amended and is called final

I would imagine if many people worked in degrees make 27.1 as SC2, in other words if the answer 27.1 is obtained allow 2 marks as a special case (SC).

the incorrect rounding again it depends on what the final marking scheme says.
AWRT 7.46 will lose 1 mark (answers which round to)
AWRT 7.5 will not lose marks.

I could not possibly predict what the marking scheme will say, but this is what will generally happen.

I did not know that, that's a very helpful explanation, thanks a lot sir.

Hopefully I'll get an A*
