    sooo, how did everyone find it??
    That was probably the first Maths a level exam module I've done where I've come across a question which I just couldn't do and didn't know how to do.

    Probably, 60-70ums, if that, you?

    Oh wow, I knew M3 was unpredictable but that wasn't very nice. What was the last question all about :L

    Last question in particular, and the 8 marker, the rest of it was pretty straightforward in terms of what you had to do but taking into account potential errors I may have dropped 20 marks (worst case scenario)

    worried about how many marks I might lose on the last question.


    I did everything else right I think, getting for the y position: original y(3/5 or 4/5 something, cant remember now) + 7/10(root something) - gt^2 rather than
    -1/2gt^2.
    Used the SUVAT equations wrong (*facedeck*), got confused and used s=((U+V)/2)t + 1/2at^2 rather than just s=((U+V)/2)T.
    Realistically how many marks do you think I will lose for that mistake? Hoping not more than 2.



    The show that question was a bit weird and I think designed to throw people off, got the 60 degrees and correct radial speed right in the end though.


    Also very first question what did people for mu? I got something like 0.167, was worried about that one as I was unsure about using F=UR with R=MG correctly

    It was a replacement paper and boy was it hard.

    Not looking forward to FP2 and 3 which are also replacements... D:

    Too easy, finished it in about 45 mins, and decided to ask for some paper to bang out some fp3 integrations. D2 was much more challenging.

    Also someone had scribbled all over the C3 formulae in the booklet when I tried to check the equation for volume of revolution; it wasn't there and I wonder if some poor soul will get into trouble when they do C3 on Thursday...

    My x and y coordinates were both pretty long, had s=ut then x=s-acos(alpha) which was my angle between the U and horizontal and the similar for y using s=ut+0.5at^2

    Personally I used s=ut+0.5at^2 but I ran out of time

    I don't want to think about it now, got biology tomorrow which I've hardly revised for

    People, can you hazard a guess at grade boundaries? I know it's kinda pointless but hey.

    I'd say
    55- 80 UMS
    62- 90 UMS
    69- 100 UMS

    but i'm not too sure

    Lol dude what a coincidence, I didn't finish in 45, finished in 1hr 8 mins but i was doing fp3 integration too.

    OT: really easy paper, easier than all the other, 75/75 for sure.

    Fair play if you're being honest, you must be really bright, everyone admires your arrogance bro.
