    For transformations, just think anything attached to the x does something weirder than expected (eg adding move it negative, and multiplying stretches it its reciprocal (3x scale factor 1/3). That's how I remember it anyway. Good luck! I'm doing OCR tomorrow too!

    I managed to get an answer for everything but who knows if they're right, probably the hardest C1 I've seen

    Well, well, the exam today did go well for me! Just these two questions (AQA) that tricked me off!

    Here are they - coming from my memory:
    Question 6 - (a)(i)
    (8-4x-2x^2)
    I tried to factorise it but it doesn't work - neither does completing the square. However.... I was so stupid, my friend told me it was to do with the quadratic equation! The question even states 'in the form m√n - where m and n are integers'. Damn it. Lost two marks.
    I didn't do (a)(ii) as I didn't have the time to finish it off due to working too much on (a)(i). Lost 2 marks.
    Question (c), I had no idea.... lost 3 marks.

    The integration question - it was really good! But the area in PQ and QR, my answer seemed to be different compared to other my friends' answers, so it's 50/50 out there.

    Lastly, the length AT - I seemed to be ending up getting √41 however my friends get 9 (as an integer), so I had no idea whether if my answer was right. This question costs 3 marks.

    So, I definitely lost 7 marks, which would be 67/75 (an easy A), but the other 6 marks - not sure if my answers are right, so I might be ending up getting 61/75, which would be a B. B or A, I'm satisfied.

    How is it going guys?
