    Right! Like they did in January. Oh God, I hope it isn't too bad. I can't flop twice! :/

    Good look everyone taking c1, we just need to smash it even if they put weird questions in. We got this now we know that the paper isn't conventional

    I thought it was a fair paper. Didn't like the proof question or the adding surds one

    I thought the proof one was okay. I could actually do it for a change! And the adding surds was different to previous ones but I didn't find it too challenging either

    Overall a good paper!

    What did people get for 'k' in the last question. I used the discriminant!

    I got k=0 and k=4. I just looked at the graph and worked it out in my head graphically. Not sure how right or wrong I am though. I managed to make it look like I knew what I was doing though

    I did what the question asked for proof so hopefully got the method marks.

    What did everyone get for the last part of last question?

    I think I got 0 and 1 for k... but I've just realised its a tangent so surely can only have one value?

    Lat question shook me up so I left it as the quadratic equation - also did anyone notice the 125 root 5 q that came up again from years ago - that made me smile.For some reason I use the quadratic formula for at least 3 questions especially the circle one ? Anyone else do the same ? Got the last number to be 7 or something ?

    It could have 2 tangents, depending on the value of k, because it was a reciprocal graph. It had to different curves

    I used the quadratic formula three times I think
    For the 125 root 5 question did you get 5^7/2?
