Thanks. What is it you're wanting to study?
Classical Archaeology and Ancient History. So I guess you could say it's a little strange I take maths as it's not relevant to my course but I've always found it quite easy! I'm hoping this paper doesn't ruin my chances.. What about yourself?

4. Anyone recoginse some of these answers? This exam was so harsh compared to previous past papers. It happened in fp3 as well, so I think they will all be hard this year.

1. a) 2cos(2x)(4x+1)^3 +12sin(2x)(4x+1)^2

b) -2x/(3x^2 +4)^2

c) -2x/((2x^2+3)(3x^2+4))
2. X2 = 2.236
X3 = 2.054
Simpsons rule = 4.49
Estimate = 1.51

3. X<-6 1<x<2 x>3

(I've saved the numbers 50 and 0.5) in my calculator for this part for some reason but can't remember the question
Range: f(x) < 8(ln8 -1)

volume = pi(4-2ln3-(ln3)^2

177/224

Cosx = -5/13

The questions aren't completely in order, but that's all I had time to input before the end

Exactly. It was an easy paper.

I finished 20 minutes early personally. I'm buzzing at how great it went and I'm not even good at maths!
Ha

A petition has been set up to help emphasise the difficulty (by the majority of students) of the MPC3 paper. Please sign! And the person will send to AQA if there are enough signatures
Now that is just pathetic.

I agree with all of this
13. To those who said it was easy... go **** yourself. I did every single past paper there is and that was by far the hardest there has ever been.

I wouldn't want a doctor who couldn't even get an A in a bog standard core 3 exam.

I sincerely hope you get an A, not for your sake, but for the public.
Unprovoked, unnecessary, malicious and just outright nasty! Mathematical ability, grades, degree, they're worth next to nothing if thats how you treat people.
