    How did you get to 300?
    Same thing, homie. I did it like 50 times before realising that I have missed a minus sign in the first equation.

    I've done all the past papers and I can say that this was much harder than previous years. I personally got 75/75 so I'm not saying it was hard just because it was my actual exam. It was harder objectively speaking. I expect about 73/75 to be 100UMS. 2014 was 74/75 and this year was harder than last year for sure due to the cylinder question.
    I predict all other maths papers will be hard this year. Last year every module had low grade boundaries. For example FP1 is usually 75/75 for 100UMS but last year 69/75 was 100UMS. A huge drop with M1, C2 too and D1 was also lower. I think they have decided to make the exams harder since last year.

    Should be about 59 - 60 for an A.

    for the question about finding r and stating whether its a max ormin(4 marks)
    i stated dy/dx=0 got r=4
    Then did d2y/dx^2 which i got as 24pi -6pir/2 simplidied to 24pi-3pir/2
    I plugged 4 into it got 12pi and sed mininum valueI
    How many marks will i get out of 4 for this? will i get method marks?

    for the b2-4ac where it said how equation has one real root--i got my equation as x^2-x+10 i sed b^2-4ac<0 cos the value i got was negative and i sed only real root was x=-2 how many marks will i get out for 3 for this?

    and for the cubic questuion worth 3 marks- i did it through 0 and touched x axis. how many marks will i get for this as well? thanks

    You mean Grade boundaries should be lower right?
    Ah yes, sorry. It should say that I think grade boundaries will be lower.

    i think they will be lower you know, because the jan 2011 was 57 for an a, but this paper was much much hareder so i will pray for it to be like 55 for an a ,lol.

    what would you say an A grade would be? and would getting 67/68 out of 75 secure a 90UMS? D:
    well done on full raw marks! bloody hell

    The cylinder question was definitely the hardest one due to the fact that i forgot the formula but aside from that, I thought that paper was ok. How did you find the paper?

    I got 7, so did 5 people I spoke to after the exam, so I'd say 7 is a safe bet
    I wouldn't say so! How can the distance to a line within the circle be greater than the radius?

    (5 root 2)^2 - 1^2 = root 9. or 3.

    I did the same as you for all of those. Although people seem to have got -12pi and said Max so i really dont know
