Perfect.
Ah good! Thank you so much for your help
2. Just scored a sweet 74/75 in the 2015 paper

Does anyone ever get that feeling when you're doing well in past papers but you still don't feel ready for the exam?

Attachment 542281542283

I just did the expansion of cotx (by differentiating and inputting pi/4), multiplied through by (x-(pi/4))

Edit: Didn't mean to send it twice just useless with this phone

by the way, the working for that question you did previously on that piece of paper isnt sufficient enough for all the marks. make sure you expand sin4theta fully into just costhetas and sinthetas and show it gets down to root2, in future questions
4. I just answered this question, got the right answer, but because I didn't add the line shown, would I seriously lose those 2 marks regardless of the fact I got the right solution? Apparently if I lose the first M1dep mark shown (by the red arrow), I lose the second dep mark too.

you do have to show the line where you multiply the whole diff equation by the integrating factor. I dont think it can be implied
6. Please could anyone explain how to do question 11b? Thanks

Nicely done - try the IAL paper!

I feel the same way. I got 75 in my last 3 mocks but I still feel like something might go horribly wrong in the exam.

Done the IAL beforehand, got 69/75, made a silly mistake in the last question

Yeah exactly! I feel like even though I score well in every past paper I do, there's still a chance something will f**k up in the exam I guess its just nerves more than anything

Ah, nice! That was one lengthy paper. Do you have any past papers left or are you done with all of them? I have the entire 2014 series left to do.

It is the nerves, but the best thing about further maths is that you have a lot of modules to get you an A*. I already have an A* in M2 and I quite possibly got it on S3, so all I need is ~90 UMS on one of S2/FP2/FP3. Some margin for error.

Not always, look at this paper https://8dedc505ac3fba908c50836f5905...%20Edexcel.pdf and question 7b on it. The MS is here https://8dedc505ac3fba908c50836f5905...%20Edexcel.pdf

I have none left unfortunately

That's amazing, best of luck! You should be able to get that A*, if all else fails you still have S2 which is pretty much the easiest A* in A-Level Maths

Thank you both very much, I understand now It was just quite frustrating since I implied that was what I meant, next time I'll add it in exclusively. Thanks!

Please could anyone explain how to do question 11b? Thanks
do you know what the answer to b) i) is ? Ive done ii) but i think ive done a really long method to it
14. Can questions as hard as some ones in the adapted papers come up?

Yeah the answer to bi is -1/2 Please could you explain how you did them, thanks

16. Can someone explain this please? Can we not apply demoivre s theorem to the whole fraction? Why do we have to split it and do it 2 times?
Thanks

17. Can someone help me with a bunch of questions from the Fp2 book? Im really stuck.
Inequalities:
-Do you need to know how to draw the 1/x , x / xsquared graphs etc. If so, can anyone explain to me how to draw the graphs once you get the x values and then how do you work out the inequalities for those type of graphs.
-How do you do questions 1 and 2 on page 9 (I know how to get the x values for 1 but cant do the rest and I cant do 2 at all)

Complex numbers:
- Page 49 question 6. How to draw the locus without solving the equation for those questions when theres a number outside the |z|.
- Page 59 question 1b??

Polar coordinates:
-On pages 133 and 134 when sketching the curves, the choose different values for theta. How do you know which values to choose.
- Page 143 question 4. How do you solve it when its r squared.

Thank you

Can you read that alrite? I did it rushed but it was a weird ass q part ii took me an age shall I post that as well?

Edit: ignore that fraction that says 5(2) over 3(4) that was from something else lol

Yeah that's great thanks so much, got it now Yeah if you could post part ii please that would be brill, thank you!
20. Does anyone know how to check differential eqns on a calculator? And taylor/maclaurin series?
