Hii, I had the c1 exam too....how was your exam I was really confused with the last question. I really had no idea how to find c. I feel it went really horrible. I also have an exam on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Ohhhh I don't feel good.
For the last question, i looked at it for ages thinking i had to work out what x was from the completing the square. Anyway fortunately it told you what the gradient was at y=4x+c so the gradient was 4 so you just plugged this in as the dy/dx of 2x^2+8x+3which was 4x +8 and equal it to -1 from (-2,25)then you find x, and then y and i got y as 1 to find x it's 4x+8 = 4giving you an giving x = -1so find y=2(-1)^2+8(-1) + 3, y=2-8+3 so y=-3 so (-1,-3)and -3=4(-1)+c c=-3+4 c=1 giving y=4x+1

I'm disappointed with how it went. I felt really prepared before going in, I've been getting As in all of the mocks (with the occasional high B) but I thought it was one of the hardest C1 papers I've done. For me there were a few harder longer mark questions which made me feel very uneasy. I just need to pull it out of the bag for C2 and D1 now!

I think the grade boundaries will be low, considering a lot of people are saying they found it hard...(praying they will be!!)

I am quite surprised so many found it so difficult, i thought it was a respectable paper.

Two. The cubic and the hyperbola intersect twice.

yeah same, I came out of that pretty chuffed with myself to be honest.

I managed to do the last question because Ive done quite a few solomon papers, and that kind of question came up in them once or twice so I had no problem with it

Yep! This paper just proved to me that mathematical ability doesn't really matter at A-level (at least AS) as long as you put in the hard work with the past papers. Solomon papers especially.

I can probably find gradients/tangents/normals to curves in my sleep.
