    I got x<-6 x>3 and 1<x<2 lol
    SAME. I GOT THIS EXACTLY (but the less than/more than and EQUAL to sign)

    No way!! That's too high. Loads of people found it so hard. There's people (including myself) that have straight up lost out chunks of marks as well as stupid mistakes. I think we should do a poll for what people think an A grade boundary will be.
    See the updated post. Most people had complaints on the last question, but you could work out part b and c without part a. (Adding the two equations gives you 2secx=-5.2
    , secx = -13/5
    cosx=-5/13

    On the integration by parts of ln(3x)/x multiplied by something or whatever it was, i got the integration by parts..... but then with the rotating around an axis... how did people make the numerator ln(3x) because it was squared???
    you bring the 2 down because its ln, so it will be 2ln3x/x anf then bring the 2 out next to pie and do and it will ln3x/x then continue

    Anyone got x<-6 and x>3 for the third question?
    Also, what did you get for substitution? I got something like 18/3 or 18/2 (can't remember really)
    The second part of integration by parts question: anyone had to use integration by parts twice?
    I was able to do every single past paper in less than an hour and get an A*, but not this one.. so, I believe grade boundaries should be much lower

    I'm hoping for about 50-53 for an A because it looks like people either ran out of time/missed out some questions/silly mistakes and people found it generally more difficult than their other papers. Someone please make a poll thing so we can vote

    Pretty sure x^2>>mod so it was my answer but after this exam I have no clue. Was getting 100% in my c3 but that test was a disgrace.

    65 for an A?! 64 was an A* last year, and that paper was really easy.

    Got straight A*/A students saying they dropped 15 marks, at least.
    Reckon
    a*-61
    a-57
    b-54
    c-51
    d-47
    It will never been 60 for an A*. Maths is the most subscribed subject for AQA , inevitably with students skewing the grade boundaries.

    Add 3 to each, then it'll a be more sensible prediction. Saying that, it was not a hard paper.

    remember its the modulus of 5x-something or whatever, so if you sketch the graphs/have a graphical calculator you'll see they dont interest at -6

    answer should be 1<<x<<2 x>>3

    I should get an A* (assuming an A* will be 30 marks).

    That was an unacceptably hard paper and it's unfair for AQA to make this year's paper so hard in comparison to all the papers. I can say a goodbye to my firm uni that's for sure, and now I genuine think I'll be going through clearing.

    I was thinking of doing that, but I thought that ln(3x)^2 was different to ln(3x^2)? Like can't you only bring down the 2 if it's in the ln?

    Same. I used to finish the paper in less than an hour but I was working till the last second for this one. They should be much lower

    Correct, you had to change the integral to
    (lnx) * (lnx)/(x^2)

    set u=lnx, v'=lnx/x^2
    u'=1/x, v=(your answer to the previous part)

    and go from there

    I'm sticking by

    100 UMS - 70 (maybe 69)
    A* - 62
    A - 55
    B - 51
    C - 46
    D - 41
    E - 36

    You're right it was (ln3x)^2 which can't be written as anything else.
