Is there any unofficial mark scheme yet?
No teacher does one for FP3
And no one has the paper

How did other people answer part b of the reduction formula? 1 mark for putting limits, 1 mark for recognising the integral always is multiplied by I subscript 1 (ie I(1) and 1 mark for evaluating this and then 1 mark for conclusion?

Its more likely that is what he needs to average an A or a B from last year's result

I'm pretty confident these are the correct solutions - but I didn't have the question paper, and I've forgotten the vector question - I didn't remember the vectors A, B or C

Sorry if it's a bit messy

It's on this google drive (the file was too big):

For the last Question you did, you were meant to find the volume not the surface area

This thread is dead compared to the other modules on the day of the exam, is the population of FP3 students that low?

For the last part, I found the general midpoint of two points on the ellipse using the coordinates of a general point on the ellipse and calling one angle alpha and one beta. I then found the gradient of the line from one point to the other (so everything's in terms of C3 double angles at this point). I subbed these into y-y1=(gradient)(x-x1) for the locus, but I'm pretty sure this is wrong because the gradient of the locus would be the inverse of the gradient of the line joining the 2 points. I stopped here.

How many marks (in your opinions) would this be out of 6? Or was it out of 5?

The answer is correct, you are referring to another question.

No it definitely was arc length, the one before was volume of revolution

55 an A. Even 51 for an A but could even be lower, everyone agrees this was a very hard paper
