    Fairly sure I've seen it pop up on IAL C4 papers before, and those have exactly the same syllabus as UK C4. I don't think it's a stretch at all to expect students to manipulate C1-level equations. Genuinely don't see the fuss about it.
    Because it's extremely abnormal? Yes it's a c1 equation, but only if you realise that you should do IBP twice which if you have never seen anything like that before isn't all that likely, since the typical integrals are so easy that it's easy to think you have done something wrong, and even if you tried IBP a lot of people will have stopped at 1 thinking it's not going to help. Of course it's easy if you have seen one of them before, but if not then I don't see how it's an easy question when you throw in the fact that it was in the middle of the paper so you don't have time to try lots of stuff out.

    Hm, so I lost 5 marks on 2b, 4 was a disaster (maybe 3 on the second part? Please?) and I WROTE DOWN the right limits but used the wrong ones because I was in a rush on 8b.

    I ****ed up badly on the paper too, What do you guys think the boundaries will be like?
    I think 58-63 for an A -- they never change massively, but I think it was significantly harder than the last couple of years' papers.

    Answers - let me know if they need to be edited (edit - typo on 5 and 3 fixed)
    1) -2<x<-root2 -1<x<root2
    2) shown x(x^2-3x-9)/2(x+2)
    3)e^ipi(1/24, 13/24, -11/24, -23/24) shown
    4) r/q(1-e^-(q/p)t) (2sinx-cosx+e^-2)/5
    5) Coefficients are 1/16, -5/16, 10/16 shown
    6) coefficients are 1 2 2 8/3 then shown
    7) Ax^2+Bx-1/12x^(-2)
    8) 21/4, (+-)arcos(3/4) 32.519 which I think was 3root7/4-11arcos3/4+49pi/4
    Hope this helps everyone

    On question 5, I divided by 2 not 2^5 and got coefficients 1,-5, 10 - considering there was a show that right after, but my method was pretty sound, I lost 6 marks, can anyone else second guess this? The total was 10 marks.

    Looking at the June 2013 paper, the polar co-ordinates question was quite similar to ours. I'm hoping since I wrote down the right limits I shouldn't lose any marks up until substituting the limits in + the final accuracy. So with a bit of luck only 2 lost on that.

    The rest.. just ugh. I did parts once on 4b before moving on so hopefully should get at least some method marks.

    Can anyone remember question 8 from the IAL paper?
    Graph ?
    a. Polar coordinates
    b. Area

    or
    cosine?
    a.(Cosx)^5 in terms of cos5x, cos3x & cos x
    b. Value of integrated cos^5 pheta with two limits

    Guys at Q4, i did integration by parts. But instead of setting u=e^x and v'=sinx, i set u=sinx and v'=e^x. I still solved it, but i think i got wrong value for C. How many marks out of the 7 do you think i will get?

    An unrelated question. How do edexcel arrange you modules from Maths and F Maths?

    Do they try and get you an A* in normal maths with the least UMS and then maximise UMS in F Maths?

    Zacken you any ideas?
