Can you have a look at this please? I know what I'd do to answer the Q but the markscheme seems confusing

I might need to actually do it. I just thought that for a C2 Q the answer would be instantly apparent. Can you help the OP?

Well this seems more of something that would arise in C3 but basically expand the 2 formulas and then let A+B = X and A-B = Y so to eliminate B just add them together and divide by 2 and then do the same to get B which you then sub in when you add the 2 formulas together.

I feel like I have but it just seems not what you'd see in C2, I see that in C3 instead.

The last part is a bit puzzling. I think now that the 0s must be

Does anyone know what the grade boundaries were so low for c2 in jan 2010?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Because of the circle question, the logs question and integration. I think the integration question was pretty easy though but the circle one was quite tough

Best of luck with those exams, you'll smash them!

Thanks a lot

Although I learnt the content "properly" (still haven't learnt religious beliefs on all) last night as it's a self taught module...

So I'll do that third lesson.

The other is business, which is common sense.

C3 is 3 days I'll know whether the chance of an A* still exists then

Very nice, I couldn't leave my stuff to the night before, I'd be incredibly stressed if I did!

Also if you put in the practice now you should still be able to get it, if not then maybe you should resit the A Level with a different board as universities are only bothered about the marks and grades you get, not that you did it early or anything. Good luck!!!
