    you considered x as lambda i think thats why, but that seems right, dont forget line of intersections have many alternative answers
    Any multiple is correct.

    I am a lucky **** to be honest. Yesterday I did the Sinnx/sinx right before I went to sleep, so I didn't have to think about it in the exam.

    I reckon it will be 75/75 for an A*, 75/75 for an A, 74/75 for a C. It was easy as hell. The only bit that requires a tiny bit of thinking was only for 3 marks.

    For the very last question I made y coordinate 5 as I thought it would make it easier :/. I was wrong. For the regression question were we suppose to use double angle formula? That's what I did

    The only question I'm not sure on is the last one I think I did everything right but can't seem to remember my answer. The position vector was (0,-0.2, and something else )

    The grade boundaries are going to be up our collective mathematically asymmetric arse this year.

    There wasn't even a locus question, they gave us theta for crying out loud You never see that in FP3 exams, you always have to do some arcane magic to cancel out the thetas. Also, the integral bit was moderately tough, but it was only for 3 marks. I reckon it will be 70 for an A*.

    my honest opinion is that itll be 72 100UMS 65 A* 58 A 51 B and who cares about the rest tbh... and i somehow couldnt get question 2, but i done everything else... btw what did you lot get for that completing the square integral that had a negative 1 as the coefficient of x^2 in the root

    Did you get it in the form required? I remember it was something like pi + 6root3 - 6 or pi - 6root + 6.
