    Conic part was kind of like last years - so if you did that you'd have been fine

    Haha! Core maths is the best for me anyway - should make up for some lost marks in M2/3 and D1

    how on earth did you do the last question? I didnt even understand what i wa being asked to find?

    Thanks for the irrational eigenvectors too,

    area of oqr = xy?

    Same as last years basically

    You have the general point, P(2cos(x), sin(x))

    Then let 2 points with x=alpha, x=beta or something

    Find the gradient, let it equal =m (constant)

    Find the midpoint of the 2 points

    Then rearrange to eliminate the variables and you should have got

    Y=(-1/4m)X

    I got OQR=1

    Had like Q(e^t, e^t) and R(e^-t, -e^-t) and find OQ and OR by Pythagoras and then area = 1 therefore independent of variable 't'

    Ok, i feel fked,
    Q1- hyperbolic - easy 1/4ln5/3
    Q2 - hyperbolic in exponential - normal
    Q3 - eigenvector - normal 2,2+-sqrt(2)
    Q4 - integration for (x+1)^2-4 - easy
    Q5 - conics? hyperbola - c) is hard
    Q6 - vectors - slightly easy than before
    Q7 - reduction? strange - normal/hard 8/105
    Q8 - conics - hard

    Comparing to the hardest paper in history i.e. 2009 or 2014
    for 2009 as comparison to 2015
    Q1. identical - easier
    Q2. vector - easier
    Q3. eigenvector - same/easier (they have integer eigenvalues)
    Q4.differentiation - normal and little bit hard
    Q5. reduction - harder but regular rather than 2015's form
    Q6. hyperbola - easier than Q8 in 2015
    Q7. vector - slightly harder
    Q8. integration - same

    and for 2009 is 50 for 80UMS, so 2015 will be -2/3 maximum

    Predicted UMS as Minimum (don't think will go lower)

    65 - 100UMS
    59 - 90UMS
    52 - 80UMS
