    Guys it asked for P not x, so 17 is wrong because you had to substitute in x=16.633 and then you get 120 to the nearest metre

    Please tell me I'm not the only one who found that an absolute nightmare.
    No you are not the only one. Is this your first time doing c2? It was my second time and I really wished I just did well last year so I didn't need to take it this year

    i found the paper pretty good. I would say it's far more challenging than the past papers, but I found this pretty chill
    Every single year people think their papers are more challenging than the past papers.

    for K
    it told you that blah blah blah
    so you used what you worked out for the binomial expansion, times by the 1+kx
    and then you put the x^2 ones equal to eachother, the x's cancel out and you can solve for k

    Yup that's what I did
    Don't round the X value round the P value when you sub the x value back into the equation
    My X was something like 16.6 or something and I got 120 m for P to the nearest metre

    How do you do this part?

    Solve: 2^(2x+5) -7(2^x)=0

    Got all the rest of the paper right, but not these 4 marks.
    I subbed in 2^x = y to give my 32y^2-7y=0 then solved for y=0,7/32. 2^x cannot = 0 and 2^x=7/32 giving x = -2.19

    it wasn't small decimal....

    x was 17m to the nearest meter what did you get?
    he/she is talking about part e. I got a small decimal aswell I think it was o.49... something. I got 17 metres aswell for the other part

    Just do well in the S1 exam and did you think you did well in c1? You could still scrape an A

    how did we find it all?

    like the differentiation question?
    That differentiation question was hellish, I had no idea what I was doing but I came out with a number so there'll be method marks somewhere I guess...

    Overall tho it was a pretty chill paper. Better than C1 anyway

    For the question that said i cant use any graphical or numerixal method to solve
    I thought graphical and numerical methods were like the entirety of maths, I got very confused.

    Was it just me who messed around and turned it into a nightmarish logarithm equation, then?I think I got -2.19 as well

    The stress and pressure of being in the actual exam hall is very different from doing past papers at home.

    Good luck with the rest of your exams
