1. Wtf was q2-9n vfupoisagbjh3lrgvpifes gbiu3hre[ogbfip[brehgi4pt5nwhb'k !

Would like the 'A' grade boundary to be 30/75
I certainly hope so
3. First 6 were okay, 7 I forgot to root the 3 leaving me with +/- 3 then I saw the last 2 questions and wanted to stick my pen in my eyes.
4. (tanx+1)(sin2x-3cos2x) find the values of tan.. and hence solve.
5. was okay apart from the last question and i had no ideas how to do qeestion 8 ( make a quadratic equation to show only one root) ....did any 1 else get 222 cm sq fro are of the sector thingy and like 0.177 i think for trapezium rul? around dem values?
6. I just think the paper was ridiculous, even the find the area of the sector plus triangle bit was hard!!

yup
8. You will probably only drop 1 mark for missing -root3, guessing you'll get error carried forward in the second part

You will get two equations,

The second equation can be simplified,

hope so.. i can't see me dropping any more than 3 marks.

what did people get for the 4 mark (yes 4 mark!!!) transformation question.. i got stretch in x direction SF 1/10

I did this too lol
12. the exam was proper hard. the first few questions were ok but the last questions were really hard. seriously wats with the trig equation!! it was soo hard!!

I got stretch by scale factor 10 in the y-direction, but I think they might be equivalent?

i got stretch in x direction SF 1/(root 10)

me tooo yayyyyyyyy!!! .... basically...it was fine apart from the log crap...before the exam i was hoping there would be one est log question, but no they put 2 questions involving logs, totally ruining it for me

EDIT: actually i think there was 3
16. Did anyone get log(1000/729) for the last question ???

iWhat was the question, i definitely didnt get this right, but i know exactly how to answer it only 4 marks i have dropped hopefully.

yup
19. Did anyone find the shaded area in the arc sector question? What I done was split the whole thing in half so that you get two right angled triangles, and then I worked out the area of that. Then I worked out the arc area, and took that away from the overall area.
