    Lower than that. I would definitely say this was the hardest C4 paper i've ever seen by quite an amount. 50 for an A? I would guess.

    Grade boundaries for 90UMS the last 6 sessions have been

    57, 60, 62, 64 66, 67 [Ive put them into increasing order they're not in year order]

    Considering, by all accounts this was a pretty difficult paper Id put the 90 UMS boundary somewhere between that 57 and 62.

    That's right.

    Seems about right might be even a bit lower talking to the other people at my center they found it harder than the lowest grade boundary paper which was 51 for an A and 57 for an A*

    In my opinion that is still cheating... why should someone have an advantage just because they bought high tech. equipment? Casio fx-85GT all the way! :P
    It's not cheating if it says graphic calculators are allowed. I could walk into a any exam and complain why only those that can afford a pen deserve advantage.

    I could have got anything between 60 and 65. If someone tells me 80 UMS will definitely be below 60 I'll feel a lot better!

    It's still unfair that some people have calculators can do this work out integrals and cubics (although most people now have calculators that do the latter)

    thats a stupid point anyway, you can get a pen for less than 50p, if you couldn't afford one the exam centre would give you one
    where as graphic calculators are £80 new which puts many candidates off, so the people who can afford it have an advantage

    I'm sure it will be below 60 :L

    I'm getting somewhere between 64-66
    and hoping for 92 :L

    A Graphical calculator helps you check, it dissent actually give you the answer. Anyone could do the paper without a graphical calculator as well as anyone else; I don't have one and got both the graph questions correct. An individual should be well able to do those questions without one.
    As for the calculator that lets you check integrals etc. mine cost £6, hardly breaking the bank is it.

    i did say most calculators do integrals now..
    it lets you know you've gone wrong, so it does help

    edit (bold)
    you may have been able to get it right, but im sure lots of people who were unsure could have used a graphical calculator which would have given them a better idea of the answer

    I made a really weird way of estimating 100/729, I multiplied by the denominator and just let x = 100/729. This is completely valid, but will this get me the marks?
    That's ridiculous, so we expanded twice?? in part i and iii.. and I'm glad it's only 2 marks for that, could have been a 3-4 marker

    Also for the rates questions I put root x instead of 1 over root x. how many marks do you think i'll get? Do you think they'll be any follow through marks for finding c or k?
