    Yeah we do the "easy examboard" apparently (edexcel)

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Do edexcel people do second order differential equations? I was surprised that my exam board don't do it.

    Any particular topics?
    Vector geometry in fp3, hyperbolics in fp2. Oh and complex numbers in fp2 as well. :unimpressed:

    Nice. It bugs me that exam boards cover different topics. I feel like that shouldn't happen tbh...

    Complex numbers I can probably help with

    Hyperbolics we don't actually cover, and my knowledge is very limited

    Vector Geometry, is all about drawing diagramssss

    When it's a subject as modular as maths then the different specs of the boards are a drop in the ocean compared to the different combinations of modules. (Although I'm still pro-single exam board.)

    Could you shed any light on q1 part iii) please? I tried cross producting the direction vectors of AB and AC (to get the direction vector of the line) and then used the direction vectors of AB and AC as normals to planes P and Q respectively. Although when I try to get a point on the line it kicks out some weird results :/ I don't have the answers either so I haven't a clue. any help would be awesome thanks. But it's okay if not I'm gonna shut up now anyway because this is kinda the wrong thread for this

    They are super easy

    Literally just quadratic equation

    Differentiating and subbing in

    And comparing coefficients

    You say super easy but I doubt I'll find it easy somehow

    Is this true? @University

    I read from a Russel group uni that if you meet xyz grade your eligible for band 1/2/3 of scholarship/grant. If you miss your offer but manage to get a place through clearing i.e -1 grade short your not entitled to anything.

    Wouldn't that just highlight that the financial limitation of people going to university even with the current system? #brokensystem

    Second order are wayyy easier!
    You don't have to think. It's very mechanical, and IMO it's very hard to get mixed up!

    When's everyone's last exam? Mine's the 5th of June, Further Maths Paper 22 (the CIE paper which combines M1-M5 and S1-S4)
    Looking forwards but at the same time don't want that day to arrive. The exams which will decide my fate will be done!
