# WTF was that C1 exam... watch

1. (Original post by BaranSR)
What years paper was that because it seems pretty low normally around 85% for an A
June 2009. Also after 2013 then the A grade boundary was around that was percentage for 2 consecutive years, however it has been lower before then..

Do you know if we were supposed to put it in the simplest form??
I wrote it as 14x-4y+54=0

You probably would still get the mark usually...... but i hope you do
3. Yes that exam was hell on earth. I thought | would do alright but the paper was literally a million times harder than even the hardest past paper I did.

Maybe I am just stupid but I struggled really badly. I think i'll be lucky to get a C.
4. Can anyone remember that arithmetic series question with they year K and something like a=17000 and d=1500 I can't remember if I got k = 11 or k = 8.

What did you get for the year K in the salary question?
11 years

OMFG DON'T GET ME GASSSSSSSSSEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

I FRIKIN DIED LOOKING AT THAT QUESTION AND JUST MADE A LOAD OF CRAP UP WITH A STUPID LIL SKETCH AND I GOT X=3/2

i think anyway.. maybe i THINK i did, but I didn't..
Don't even remember lol

OP I found it horrible.

ESP that last question (but yoo if it's 3/2 waheyyyy)
and the series question.. I WAS LIKE DF WHY IS IT ALL 4 ----.----------

then the question about y2^x got me like ...

(wrong anyway) -.- -1/7 lmao

OMG !!! I GOT -1/7 but i also got 1/5 because i did it two different ways and didn't know what one to choose lol

How did you find the rest of the paper? It wasn't impossible but I know I made so many silly mistakes, maybe 59-61/75 is an A :/

Tbh I done a similar question the other day and I KNEWWWWWW it was 100% suppose to end up as a quadratic.

But still, did not change or think further
9. I think I did well but part 1b) was surprisingly hard for a first question. And the last question was bad as well I got like -37/16 for c which is wrong. However, most of it was easy

What did people get for their values of k in the sequences question?? V1,V2,V3 etc
K, 2K, 3K, 5K and 9K or something.

What did you get for the ladies total salary?
£451,000???
12. (Original post by jimbo1234567890)
i left it as 9/6 which is 3/2 so will i still get 5 marks

ya neither of mine ended up as quadratics :/
oh well we can just hope for the best and do better in C2 and M1/C2 XD
14. (Original post by GrigorijC1997)
what did you get for the sequences question when you had sigma from 1 to 20?
80. Not to sound stupid lol but when I tried the sequence I kept getting 4 each time, I felt really stupid writing that down.
15. (Original post by BaranSR)
What did you guys get for Q5??
q5 what was that again?
16. (Original post by Frostyjoe)
K, 2K, 3K, 5K and 9K or something.

not 5k it was 4k went up by k each time
17. (Original post by Yousf)
not 5k it was 4k went up by k each time
k+2k+3k+4k+5k=165

15k=165

k=11

k = 11 for that question and the total salary was in the 500000s
19. Ugh whatever, I probably failed that paper.

It was SO hard, it didn't even feel like a Core 1 paper!
20. **** MY LIFE

I was hoping for near full UMS and I wasn't expecting such a solid paper where it was so easy to slip up.

Honestly I ****ed up the P^2 inequality, total salary, 10b and a few others, partly because I didn't have enough time because they were such weird answers I kept double checking to see if they were right!

so upset I can't even lie, my own fault but damn edexcel why you do this
