Paper wasn't particularly difficult, no fundamentally new questions, just old questions with new numbers and a different perspective. Just the timing was very tight, the ladder and KE-lost-collision questions required way more time than the marks they were worth would suggest. Got 69 or 70/72, depends how many marks I lost on 5(iii) for writing arctan(39/14)=70.3' rather than tan(alpha)=39/14. Surprised so many people reckon 60/72 for 90UMS, thought it'd be 65 or so, hopefully I'm wrong and everyelse is right though. Just depends on how many struggled with the timing!
I didn't finish, and most people in my class didn't finish. The timing alone will make the grade boundaries lower than you might think.

I see. I didn't realise everyone thought the timing was so tough, in which case you'll probably be right, especially as the last question was 9 marks. The boundaries should be medium-low but close together then, with only a few marks between each grade. Time will tell.

It was a 7-24-25 triangle for Q but I can't remember which was sin and which was cos. I think cosθ=7/25

What the hell happened XD
Normally get like 65+ and can do it in about an hour but I didn't even finish this one and it was so bad omg.
Same here. That paper truly was a shocker. I cruised to 67-68 in an hour on the last three past papers I did.

I think 20? That seems to fit with the answer I got for the height of C too, just checked it quickly.

This thread is for the M2 paper, not the C1 paper. Ignoring the fact that your petition is silly anyway, I'm sure that most M2 candidates wouldn't have had any trouble scoring a high mark had they sat C1 this morning.
