    I've looked now. Are there any questions that people are unsure about and would like a second opinion on?
    Question 10iii) I used RHS of the identity to show that it equals to LHS, will i drop all the marks?

    Also that question to integrate by substitution, I integrated it correctly, but I left it in terms of u, how many will I drop?

    How many marks do you reckon I would lose for reading it an directly proprtional isntead of inverself proportional? All 7 and then the 2 on the next one :/?
    Possibly 5 out of 7. Maybe follow through ones too?

    I really doubt that you'll drop any of the marks because you still proved the identity.

    I'd say he'd get a few more. Drop 3 perhaps, since I think s/he'd get about 4 for separating the variables, attempting and correctly integrating their (albeit incorrect) differential equation, and then for also getting values of k and c that are correct according to his DE.

    Of course it all depends if the A marks have an 'ft' (follow through) next to them in the mark scheme, if they do s/he should get a fair few. But wont get any early 'M' marks since your method of finding the DE was wrong.

    For the volume he'll definitely get 1 assuming correct method, and I'd presume the second as long as its accurate according to their DE.

    As the mark schemes say , they are there to help mark 'incorrect solutions' and I'd assume the second part would carry ft marks.

    Hope that's a bit more encouraging!

    Dunno, never heard of 'Nimige' so I can't really comment.

    For Q4, it i only got two coodinates, (pi/2,1) (pi/6,1.5) but missed the other one, how many marks do i lose?

    For Q7i) Would i lose a mark for putting the acute angle of 8.68 degrees?

    For Q9, i simplified my dy/dx wrong and ended up with part 9ii) as t = 1 with (-2,-1) but wasnt sure about determining the nature, how many follow through marks will i get?

    For 10iii) i didnt show the given expression but i expressed the first 4 terms instead of 3 correctly, how many marks lost?

    Thank you!

    I'm thinking about 51/52 for an A, does anyone think it would be much higher than that?

    For 5 ii):

    I got completely the wrong integral, but still put limits in and presented my answer in the form AlnB

    How many marks would I lose? (/5)
    LOL

    No I think you would have lost 13 marks

    At least I didn't screw up the integral question. That's got to be an automatic rejection from university?

    I don't think that was a straightforward paper at all.. but June 2012 was no doubt harder. I actually requested my marked paper scanned back, and guess what guys..? It was marked out of 72... meaning an A* mark would have been 65... So I am really not feeling optimistic about this at all. I'm from Winchester College, and majority of the subjects have already changed to Pre-U instead of A-levels. And because of the introduction of the supposedly ''MUCH'' harder pre-u exam, a levels have felt the need to tighten up, hence the unexpected jump in BOTH difficulty and grade boundaries for last year's C4. I expect them to keep it similar, so that would mean like a 64 for A* and a 57/58 for an A.......

    I'm just being realistic here guys

    What would grade boundaries be for a D?

    Why would the paper not be marked out of 72 :confused:
