# AQA FP3 June 2015 Unofficial Mark Scheme watch

1. Doing the last question again I got 0.425, which ive seen in this thread; I must have types numbers into my calculator wrong ****ing hell
2. (Original post by manraj97)
It seems like I only lost 9 marks on the last 2 parts of the last question.

If so, I got 66/75 which should be an A* because I think the grade boundaries will be lower than last year
Pretty good going for FP3
I will be ecstatic if I even get an A on it tbh - which is looking likely by some miracle
3. i think i got full marks on this. im on my way to cambridge woohoo
im going to apply through adjustment for maths

I didn't get full marks. I'm on my way to the job centre woohoo!
6. Could anyone tell me how to do 7 b)ii. I found the polar equation of AB and let it intersect C1.

And so begins the exam season; below is my unofficial mark scheme for today's FP3 paper; I would appreciate it if anyone who sat the paper could contribute to the mark scheme, particularly if you think one or more of my answers are wrong. Marks are in emboldened, underlined brackets, like so [x]. Corrected answers that are still being debated are simply underlined, as so x.

I can't remember my answers for the last question on the paper, apart from the last bit, so could people please tell me their answers, and the marks for each question if they remember them!

what were the x and y values in question (2) that you'd sub in to find the arbitrary value for the equation, cause i'm sure i did it right but don't remember C=7

Yeah I don't remember c=7 either...

C is 7/4, not 7.

I think y = 2 and x= pi/4.
10. Yeah it was the third and fourth derivatives that gave non zero values
11. The range of validity for 3aii I'm pretty sure is -1/2 < x < 1/2

The range of validity for 3aii I'm pretty sure is -1/2 < x < 1/2
Was it not -1/2 < x <= 1/2 ?

The ln(1+x) expansion is valid for -1 < x <= 1, but not sure, any ideas?

I thought that at first but with both -2x and + 2x to be expanded does it not make
-0.5< x <= 0.5 and 0.5>x=>-0.5. As x must satisfy both doesn't it cancel to make just
-0.5<x<0.5 ?
14. Validity is definitely -0.5<x<0.5
15. Ah yeah, good point. I think you're right
16. I'll update the validity question now; I missed that bit in the exam haha!

Could anyone tell me how to do 7 b)ii. I found the polar equation of AB and let it intersect C1.Couldn't get the right answer.
did the exact same thing, was so proud of myself then I let them equal eachother and BOOM. Dead end. Brilliant.

Hopefully we'll get a few for that mate.

Did it ask for the range of validity? If so I missed that.

I agree with the unofficial mark scheme for everything else and answered every question/sub question so I feel rather confident.
19. In 6b I think you're missing the end of the first bracket (should be after Bsin(lnx/2) maybe?), and for question 7 part (a) was 5 marks and (b)(i) 4 marks from what I remember. Can't believe how fast you put this together and how much you can remember, thanks!

What sid you get for AB? Off the top of my head it was .
You set this equal to to get a cubic in , which you solve for . One value is less than -1, so can be discarded, one is associated with A and the other gives you the given result.
