    The right answer is year 2029, since N is 14 years and you count in year 2016 as number 1 2016+13 years = 2029

    The year 2030 is an expected mistake many students fall for it, there were many similar questions in the past papers

    I'm not quite sure you're right. Firstly, you can't count 2016 for this part of the question (but when finding the sum in the next part you use n=11 counting 2016). I'm saying this because the value 275000 increases by a ratio of 1.1 starting from 2017.

    Illustrating this fact:
    2017 - 275000 * 1.1
    2018 - 275000 * 1.1^2
    2019 - 275000 * 1.1^3
    2020 - 275000 * 1.1^4
    2021 - 275000 * 1.1^5
    2022 - 275000 * 1.1^6
    2023 - 275000 * 1.1^7

    2024 - 275000 * 1.1^8
    2025 - 275000 * 1.1^9
    2026 - 275000 * 1.1^10
    2027 - 275000 * 1.1^11
    2028 - 275000 * 1.1^12
    2029 - 275000 * 1.1^13
    2030 - 275000 * 1.1^14

    As you see in 2030, 275000 increases by a factor of 1.1^14 and it is the first year when the value becomes > 1000000.

    Correct me if I'm wrong

    Look at my attachment. The question is the same as the one in the exam yesterday.

    For me the paper was relatively easy if not slightly challenging. To be honest, May 2014 paper remains the hardest Edexcel math past-paper I've done. I feel that yesterday's exam was on par with the Jan 2014 C12 paper in terms of difficulty.

    Initially I felt like I wouldn't be able to complete the paper, but in the end I completed it and managed to check my answers as well I think an 'A' will require between 90 and 100 marks out of 125. But that's just my opinion.

    If one of you remembers all of the questions (likely not :P) post them on this thread and I can make an unofficial mark scheme.

    You are right as 2016 has common ratio of power zero so it is 2030



    in the kite question did anyone get the angle 0.48sth in radians , and kite area of 48.sth

    Yes the area of the kite was around 48 to 49. Can't entirely remember, but I think this was my calculation :

    2(0.5*10*12*sin0.421) = 49 cm^2
