    If I put 2pi instead of pi for the volume of revolution formula, do you think that's only one mark lost? (The integration and everything else was correct).
    you will lost M1 and A1 as worst situation, only lost A1 is possible but not likely

    Thanks. My mark should be ~70 then.

    Was this paper harder or easier than usual?

    I hope it's harder for majority of candidates

    I lost 3+3+6 maximum, :/

    Don't know, does Arsey usually upload MS for FP3?

    Expected boundaries anyone?
    I found the paper was fairly hard, made a few stupid mistakes but hope it's enough for an A.
    most of the further mathematicians are still in exam doing S2...
    I am running a poll but the sample is way too small to form an opinion

    Ok, i feel fked,
    Q1- hyperbolic - easy 1/4ln5/3
    Q2 - eigenvector - normal 2,2+-sqrt(2)
    Q3 - integration for (x+1)^2-4 - easy
    Q4 - conics? hyperbola - c) is hard
    Q5 - vectors - slightly easy than before
    Q6 - reduction? strange - normal/hard 8/105
    Q7 - cannot remember, someone pls remind me
    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
    Hmm, for the question where you stated p and q for the volume of revolution, I got p =1/2 because of the 2pi so 2pi*1/4 = 1/2 pi?

    I did the same thing, but the volume of revolution formula only has pi, not 2pi.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO..... Think it will be a loss of 2 maximum marks or 1 only?

    Oh my ****ing days all those questions of area of revolution I thought 2pi applied to everything, lol

    What do you feel in comparison with previous paper, especially hard ones - 2014 and 2009, i think 2015 is not that hard but wired and some less able students will preform badly

    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'
    IN GOT 1 TOO
    Had to guess a little bit but oh well
