Yes, assumed that's what you meant. That June 2014 question.

Well I could do that one for some reason in my mock but I can't prove α^4+β^4=(α+β)^4-2(αβ)^2 in general
4. I don't think it does equal that. a^4 + b^4 = (a^2 + b^2)^2 -2(ab)^2. Not (a+b)^4 -2(ab)^2. See the dropbox link

a^2 + b^2 = (a+b)^2 -2ab... so

((a+b)^2 - 2ab)^2 -2(ab)^2

Maybe I read it wrong? It was one of the questions in the book
Oh yes I read it wrong
6. Exam's gonna be especially tricky tomorrow, FP3 style (I heard FP3 was very hard). Watch out for oddball questions! I think the best way to prepare now is to quickly go over the maths behind most of the topics so that they can't catch you out with questions that really test your understanding (like knowing what your Newton-Raphson approximation for the root is geometrically speaking).
The FP1 textbook is great for this.

12. Please tell me I wasn't the only one who thought that was horrible

13. A disgusting paper, that's what. Still though, I reckon I dropped max 10 marks, and on last year's paper that would have been 94 UMS.

What do you think the grade boundaries will be like this year?

17. That was hard... Harder than any other paper in my opinion

18. Lads that was shocking i wish took a levels 4 years ago when the government wasnt out to shaft you
19. That was sexual. Did everyone else get lambda as 2/3 and k as 39 in the series question ??

20. Definitely harder than last year. Last year it was a fairly standard FP1 paper where they just tested all the concepts but not in a tricky way. The questions like the second part of complex numbers, and the last summation question were not typical FP1 questions and a lot of people will have dropped marks on it.
