# OCR MEI C3 Maths June 2015 watch

1. (Original post by ETRC)
you can also say area is the same but under x-axis instead of above it
or you can say modulus area is the same
I finished the paper early so during the last few minutes after I triple checked every answer I decided to write the magnitude of the integral of g(x) between 0 and 3 is , the same as the area found in ii)

Let me get this straight.

Integrals measure the area under a graph right?

This being said, under the graph (if I recall the question accurately) where were two parts, like 2 triangles.

So, I did 3 x 1 for the rectangle. Took away the two triangles from it to get my answer.

I wouldn't even know how to do this differently.

But yes, I was accurate with my limits so should be able to get it like you said.

Going over exams after they are finished is a bad idea for me lol. From coming out thinking I have an A*, to thinking I have a high A now, somehow if I was wrong on that, I may have a low A...

With M1 being a low A/ high B it all rests on the shoulders of C4 to see if I get overall an A* an A or even a damn B! O_O! Hate you C4!
You only needed to do the rectangle minus one integral if I remember correctly.

I think I have got between 59 and 64 on this paper. Is it still possible to get an A*?
Definitely as long as you smash C4

what ques was that ? I just found the are of integral with limits 4 and 1 not sure if its the same ques as you tho
That is the easiest/quickest method, and is also what I did. I believe it's question 8.

so you did no take away from rectngle or sumthing? I got the same answer as other ut just minus

that should be fine
7. how many mark would i get if i didnt subtract three from the rectangle?

I did the 3*1 rectangle minus the value of the integration between 1 and 4. Thought that was the easiest way to find the shaded area?

I did it like this
you should get marks for this. hopefully a mathematician marks the papers because there are lots of ways of doing some questions that are correct
10. Assuming marks are only lost completely on Q4, a little in terms of accuracy for the last parts of the section B questions and -3 marks for general section A questions could I still get an A in C3?

Paper was fine, I made lots of silly mistakes as I prepped for NM till 3AM.
NM went gracefully tho

I did RECTANGLE TAKE AWAY INTEGRAL.
12. Question 8. (iv) said 'write down the value of...' for the integral - not the area defined by it. Hence, the answer should be negative.

True, luckily I wrote most of the answers twice to make sure, In question one I wrote the coordinates as expressions involving arctangents, exponentials and square roots as well as writing down the approximate decimal coodinates. And in question 8 I wrote both the integral and the magnitude of the integral
14. I think I might have gotten full marks but I am still worried about question 5 because with all the other questions I could check my answer by using different methods or working backwards (e.g. I checked if my integrals were right by seeing if I got back to the original expressions by differentiating) but question 5 can only be solved by differentiating implicitly ( could not even plot it on my calculator since it only plots Cartesian, polar and parametric).

Can I still get at least 98% if I do question 5 wrong? (I definitely verified that (1,1) is on the curve so I will get marks for it) I might have written the correct answer of 1/2 but I really don't remember.

I did it like this
Wow!... I just knew that sin45=cos45= 1/root2.. took me about 10 seconds to answer.
16. With the rectangle area question i used substitution and ended up with a weird answer.. How many marks would i lose.

That answer isn't right, it is 4ln(2) not 16: http://www.emathhelp.net/calculators...1&b=2&steps=on
18. How many marks do you think could be lost for writing that 1/3 + 1 = 2/3 instead of 4/3 by accident in Q2?

Think I win the award for most stupid marks lost.

Yeah you're right, thanks - I couldn't be bothered to work it out again lol.

I'm sorry but I think I'll be taking that
