Is there a document showing how many candidates sat each exam?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Graham sent out a vast document with exam statistics, but it is mostly by percentages. The only figures involving numbers of candidates are for each qualification, not each unit.

What's it on? There's no guarantee I'd even be able to do it if it's one of your horrible sequence product questions...

I will try it if i can do it bro.

Here comes the beast.
The finite region bounded by the curve with equation
y = (6 - x)(x -2), the tangent to the curve at the point where x = 3 and the x axis, is rotated by a full turn about the tangent.
Determine the volume generated.
(Calculator is allowed)

I will make another similar question later (easier) because when I made this little did I know how tough it was going to be

Well, I've moved the region so that it's 'connected' to the origin. But rotating the axis/curve + tangent about the origin and keeping the equation of the curve correct is pretty horrible

I tried rotation matrices but the new equation was appalling ...
I derived a volume element but I do not know if there is any silly or serious error in my workings... over 3 pages still

lol, I found this after thinking about matrices, but I'm not going to use/adapt it because it's kinda cheating now:

Trying to translate to polar coordinates and rotate once I've got it in that system... This quadratic is a pain, but it should be doable

excellent research...
I can now check my answer

Thanks so much, been looking for this for ages now.

Is there any chance you have the OCR markschemes and examiner reports? I do psychology and chemistry and haven't been able to find a single thing on TSR.

I am sorry but I am unable to.

I have a friend in a school which teaches EDEXCEL maths and kindly lets me have access to Maths EDEXCEL material only

What was your answer? Would like to check mine tbh since I'm 50/50 as to whether I made a logic error in my work somewhere

It truly is a beastly question! I had an attempt although I haven't checked for mistakes yet (they are no doubt in plentiful supply with the integration, the transformations etc.). I ended up with
7root 5 /6 pi

No problem, I waited the entire year to find out all of my GCSE exam markschemes and examiner reports.

I am going to go through the calculus method you supplied in a while (still doing other material)

Did you not use calculus yourself?

I'm pretty close to that and got lazy at the end by approximating my integral using Wolfram, so we could be correct. Did you translate and reflect the quadratic so that it makes applying the calculus from that link easier or not?

I did but I got the thickness of the element wrong

My method was a little more complicated I'd say (making it more likely incorrect). I drew a diagram showing the curve, the tangent and the required area. What I then did was introduce a second pair of axes (w and z, as shown) at (1.5, 0) and started trying to express w and z in terms of x and y. I came up with and . All I did then was make substitutions in the formula to get it in terms of x and dy. The limits etc. were explained in my full method. Excuse the poor diagram...

17. I don't know if my decent results this year were luck or my maths skills deteriorate incredibly quickly without sufficient practice...I have absolutely no clue how to approach the last question given, or would not have had any without the ideas of others (still probably can't work towards a solution even given that). Starting to feel a maths degree is not for me..

May have to resort to that...although it looks somewhat ugly

Hah, I tried to do this. Instead of introducing new axis, I converted the translated equations of the line and curve to polar form, rotated them in that system (quite a bit easier) and then reconverted to cartesian. Sadly, it's seems actually impossible (Wolfram could only approximate) to explicitly express y in terms of x after doing so, so that didn't work for me.

I like how you've tried it though, so I'll have a go at doing the question that way tbh.

It's just lots and lots of boring algebra. I was too confused as to how to get it to work from underneath, so I just worked it out from the 'inverse' of the quadratic above the tangent
19. Do you guys think this will be too much to go into one of my SPECIAL PAPERS?

I made a far easier version which is to revolve the finite region bounded by y=x^2 and y=x about the line y=x
