    For Q4B, I couldn't find A or prove B so I "claimed" that I found a =8 and b=8 in the previous question (obviously this is wrong)
    I then carried this forward to question 4B and tried to work out the value of K and I did all the right steps that I could have worked out K with if I had the right values.
    How many marks will I get for this? If any :/

    Okay fine I'm prejudice against S1 and have conditioned myself to hate it. Oddly enough I found it the hardest out of all my maths units.

    I think you guys had a little of a misunderstanding about the subtleties of this question. You had to find E(R^2), not (E(R))^2.

    Last year, a C was 53 and a B was 60, but i think most agree this paper was harder
    It could very possibly be 68UMS, You have a solid shot
