# Edexcel AS/A2 Mathematics M1 - 8th June 2016 - Official Thread watch

1. TeeEm Your M1 questions are making me nervous lololol
2. (Original post by Don Pedro K.)
Yeah; he set the tension at A as Tn, and so the tension at C will be 2Tn, since it is double the tension at A.
Ok for June 2012
It says : Given that themagnitude of the reaction of the support at P on the rod is twice the magnitude of thereaction of the support at Q on the rod
But this cannot be P=2Q as it would give an answer of 29.4
But if 2P=Q it would give the right answer of 14.7
So why is it not P=2Q

well stats is boring af
Would you say it's easier?

P does equal 2Q. You're asked to find the reaction at Q, which is 14.7 using P = 2Q.

I suspect that you are finding the reaction at P for your answer.

compared to M1, a lot easier.

Generally the difficulty of modules go:

Decision<Stats<Core<Further Pure<Mechanics

well thats for as level, core and further probably get a lot more difficult at a2

Does anyone know?
Hope I'm not missing a trick here... but surely you just suvat and work out that because a =-9.8 it must reach max height before t=2

Mechanics is the hardest? No 😱 I don't know what to do now😫

Could you explain a little further :s?

you get to pick your modules?

How good is the teacher that will be teaching Mechanics? With a good teacher, Mechanics is not hard. You need to be able to understand what is going on, but you only need to know about half a dozen things.

Make any sense?

Ahh okay yeah that does make sense haha Thanks!

I got 9 <f <18 (Do you know the answer?
Yeah, couple of tricky thought processes

3c is pretty rude.

What is this from?
15. Anyone reckon the exam could be harder than this (Gold paper 1)? https://2802a3b1a650824d2586fd3336bd...%20Edexcel.pdf

I know it's a gold paper but I didn't really find it that difficult...

nah. I hope the exam only has seven questions instead of eight though.

trouble is it's unrealistic with 3 vector questions.
Lift questions can be a bit tricky sometimes, if you don't think through your forces carefully.
Otherwise for dynamics/statics just make sure you include all the forces and don't leave anything out of your equations

I think when it's 8 questions, it's always a vector question that comes up twice. One simple one and one rather long one...

vectors questions are pretty much always the same i think. but id still rather have 7 questions so i can have more time to check answers

That's true. To be honest, it's the dynamics and statics I find easiest in M1. With vectors, I have to think more...
I like finding the coefficient of friction because at least I know if I done it correctly or not
