    I'm re-doing the course in 6th year :|
    Well, I'll be repeating it too probably, but at least we'll be much more prepared and know what to expect when sitting the next exam.

    I thought the whole exam was pretty fair except question 5a) in paper 2, it took me a long time to work it out after the exam. It was only worth 3 marks though so im hoping for an A band 1

    I got 4.5 for question 6c but what did everyone get for question 7b)?
    for 7b) i got X=3^8 my teacher told me it was right

    but i dont think this question was in the course so it might get chopped off by the sqa

    the course doesnt contain logs with different bases

    I couldn't get that question, but afai am aware, you were supposed to use your answer from part a. But it was still really difficult

    PLEASE NOTE
    There were two careless errors in the 2010 Higher Paper 1: Q16 and Q20
    My apologies - too much haste to get the solutions uploaded quickly and not enough care and attention!
    The errors have now been fixed.

    You are correct. The SQA changed the spreadsheet after I'd uploaded it, which is thoroughly peculiar, but I'd imagine the newer (93) boundary is more likely to be accurate.

    I thought paper 1 was decent, but I've spotted so many stupid mistakes I've made. Paper 2 was solid, and I had to hold myself back from breaking down. Hoping the stuff I have written gets me marks, and the ones in paper 1 I actually did right, will count.

    By the way, has anyone else heard the rumour that they're taking the last question out of the exam? Something about them not giving enough information...

    It seems silly to me, but has anyone heard anything similar?

    I am not sure that this could be done fairly, as some may have spent more time on it and as a result got a better mark here than in earlier questions. There was talk of this last year, but as far as I am aware it was not done.
