    AH really, that would be great. I didn't need it for an A* as M2 and FP2 went well and I took S2 last year, but it is more for personals satisfaction
    What modules do you need +90% in for A* overall? (You in general, not personally)

    Well ****. Need to know if I've got high enough mark for the A*. How do you think this paper compares to last year? Didn't have time to do any papers.

    I'm happy to write a mark scheme if I have the questions. Anyone can upload the paper guys?

    You need to average 90 UMS over 3 A2 module, so M2 S2 FP2 FP3, presumably M3 etc and S3 etc although I'm not sure

    Ok. I also did S2 last year with a high mark, and FP2 and M2 went better than FP3, so hopefully I'm alright

    Think it was slightly harder than last years, boundaries one or two marks lower I reckon

    I only did last years but i thought last years was nice and this was harder. So i reckon 61 A* 67/68 for 100UMS. U have got that dw.

    First half was generally trivial, second half was generally hard.

    For the definite integral reduction proof I sort of did 2 iterations and then was like "therefore the answer". I did get how n being odd affected it though.

    Didn't get the area being independent of t. That's 3 marks lost. Think I had the wrong formula for 0.5bh so I ended up with tanh2t.

    For the part before that I had like 2 pages of working and crossing out (for 3 bloody marks). Sorry examiner.

    For the last part of the last question, I stopped as soon as I had a formula in terms of hyperbolic double angle formulae. Assuming I did this right, would I lose any marks for not rearranging for a Cartesian equ? On second thoughts though, I just used m as the gradient of the line joining the two points on the ellipse, but I think it would be the perpendicular to this.

    What would about 67-69/65 be?

    Anyone remember the Q2, i think it's a very easy integral - sinhx i think? and answer in terms of e?
    It ended up being the integral of cosh x. The final answer was 12/5 - e/2 + 1/2e

    Where are you getting these grade bounderies from?
    I have just googled it and last year it was 75 for 100 ums so what am i not getting here?

    Last year was 69/75 for 100.

    If n was even then you would have needed I_0, which introduces π/2 into your final answer.

    Think I've got the same marks as you. I reckon 65 will be anywhere between 85-95 UMS, although probably towards the higher end of the range, although don't want to get hopes up lol

    67 or so would defo be an a* maybe full ums... The reason why the being odd didn't affect it for you was because you didn't end up doing I1 so you wouldbhave lost a couple of marks there

    Why would it be perpendicular?! Since it was the line through the 2 points you choose - I don't see why it would be perp.?
