    Look, AQA will not drastically change the grade boundaries. If it was that hard, it wouldn't have been chosen for this year's paper. What they are trying to do, is stop thousands of student who simply do past papers and get A*s, without knowing the actual content. If this is one of you, you do not deserve to pass. The question about range, merely required simple mathematical ingenuity. Looking beyond this, the content was nothing but fundamental C3 AQA Maths knowledge.

    There's a Cambridge offer holder at my school who gets straight A* in everything and he found the paper difficult. The rest of my maths class came out feeling like absolute **** because of that exam. I don't know what that Guy is talking about. The boundaries will for sure be lower this year. Most Probably not by 10/15 marks but I'm sure it won't be 60 for an A.

    They will change the grade boundaries if everyone found it hard, so that a certain number of people get A*, a certain number get A etc

    ?
    No I thought g(x)=1/x^2

    It went from 16x-e^2x to 16/x-e^2/x?

    If you set y=g(x) then you need to plug in from there

    16y = 16/x

    therefore y=1/x
    so g(x) = 1/x

    If you were getting straight A*s as you allegedly claim, then this iteration should not appear difficult to you, unless you were not prepared. I don't see Oxbridge students apart from you here complaining.
