    What the **** is that June 2009 paper? That was bloody horrific. At least 62/75 was full UMS, which makes me feel slightly less stupid...
    You should've seen the June 2014 paper.

    I actually prefer harder papers with lower boundaries, but it would definitely make it more stressful of you sat the exam. What was the A*/A boundary?

    55 - A, 62 - A*, 69 - 100 so lowest since June 09, although June 09 had the luxury of being the first paper so peeps weren't gonna do too well.

    No, not that I can find.
    My teacher did say that using old papers from 2005-2009 would be useful for FP revision, seeing as it consists of FP2 and FP3 topics.

    Yes, I did a P6 paper recently. I think it would be very useful to do legacy papers, making sure to leave a few of the new spec ones to the week before the exam for revision.

    FP1 attached, courtesy of Graham at Edexcel. Since these were issued in 2009, I feel OK with making them public.01a_Further_Maths_-_FP1_questions_v2.doc

    pi/2 for half a turn (i.e think of a symmetrically sliced piece of the solid)
    pi for a full turn (complete solid)
