I'm dropping it next year
Did you decide that before you've done some exams?

Oh well, maths isnt for everybody (not meant towards only you but also myself but i think i can barely manage)
2. The paper was fine. The last question show that was a bit **** in that you had to see the arbitrary value by which to multiply everything, but otherwise it was fine. Dropped a mark for forgetting to plug x=16.63 into the perimiter equation at the end though 😤 Also there was no question 10, for those of you worried due to trolls...
3. I think it was hard paper. There was a question with a triangle and a sector inside and we had to find the perimeter of shaded region. Can anyone explain to me how to find it.

Yeah I decided to drop Spanish and maths and to continue Chem, bio, psych.
I was hoping to do veterinary but I've messed up and won't get into any uni now

The area of a sector is The triangle was equilateral so each angle was , so as it lied on a straight line which is
Now we have

So the area was
6. What? I don't understand what you said. Can you explain it in words please.

I think you're getting confused, this question didn't actually involve a sector it just looked like one, instead, you needed to integrate below the curve and then take away the area of the triangle to be left with the area of R

I was talking about the wrong question,^ Lewis has the idea.
9. I really wanted a B in maths, although C1 was alright, my timing and ability to think for this c2 paper was awful. So I'm annoyed that I may not even make it to the second year. Seeing unofficial markschemes and all. I just feel like in general I have flopped all my exams and I know I wont get the grades I want. Ah.

11. I'm so annoyed I think I lost about 8-10 marks in that paper, the last question and parts b,c and d of the binomial expansion question screwed me over

If I lost 8-10 marks do you think that may scrape an A?

A D, but I obviously don't want to get that but who knows.
13. Anyone got an unofficial question paper? plz inbox me

Do not panic yet.
Most students do better than they first thought

Easy, but I probably lost 5 marks for stupidly doing 4-2=-2 .
Same I found it easy, also lost marks stupidly, in the logs question, after letting

and solving to find , i forgot to plug the value back into the equation to solve for

2 Marks lost or..?
16. I did it last year and got a C and this year was definitely easier and am pretty sure I only dropped 4 marks max. Then again I might've found it easier because I've been doing C3 and C4 for a year which are defo harder

Probably 2 Marks if you found the correct values for y.
18. Can someone definitively remember for part ii of question 6 (the trigonometric question) whether the answers were specifically asked for in degrees?
19. This exam was easy. In all honesty, if you couldn't do the two "show that questions" in question 9 then you really shouldn't be doing A-Level maths.

Considering the range was between 0 and 360 degrees...you would be foolish to use radians. Nonetheless, I do believe as long as you show your method, you do not lose all the marks in those types of questions if you used the wrong mode on your calculator.
