    14 marker on rates of change.. impossible
    Obviously in parts (e.g.- (a) (b), etc.). Nonetheless, I'd say this is pretty feasible. Considering vectors has come up frequently, knowing Edexcel I'd say it won't make up as much of the paper as it has previously (or so I secretly hope cos vectors iz not good)... But we'll never know, I guess lol.

    P.S.- We meet again lol. Biology, chemistry, maths ftw! 2 more days till freedom XD

    Do you actually get a mark normally for the (+c) in integration?
    its important in differential equations, others not so much, but include it anyway, as you definitely wont lose a point

    I think if its one of the questions near the beginning of the test it can be worth a mark, but in the papers I've been doing today they give you the mark with or without the +c. Id put it there just to be sure though!

    I feel your pain dude, how did you find econ3?
    I think I got an A for econ3.... I went from not being able to finish a paper 2 days before the exam to doing every question in the paper... I did question 10... I kinda struggled with thinking about points for contestability but I manage to get at least 3 down with 2 application references, so I think I should get at least around 12/16 for that question... maybe a little lower... but overall I think I did pretty decent...

    For C3 though, I'm really gutted over it... I spent less time on C3 as I was pretty good at it at the time and I couldn't do Econ3, so I panicked and spent 2 days straight on econ 3 before the exam... by the time I got the C3, I was a little out of touch with it and made so many stupid mistakes..

    I may have gotten a borderline A or maybe a high B.... that's not good enough.. I need a A* for maths...

    All we can do now is do our best in C4 and S2/M2 (which ever one you're doing)...
    even if we don't get an A*, we can try and get the highest possible ums above 480.. hopefully, having a high enough ums above 480 will give be enough for the uni to give us some leeway...

    Newtons laws of cooling?? Has any one else never heard of this??
    Yeah, isn't it the law that says that the rate of change of temperature of an object is proportional to the difference between its current temperature and the temperature of its surroundings?

    Don't worry I just checked, it's not some specific topic it's just an example question for forming differential equations

    cosx would turn into sinx, inside would remain the same, multiply the outside by the the differential of 2x divided by 1, in this case its 2

    2sin(x/2) i think
    hope this helped!
    just use intergration/chain rule

    UCL for economics
    A* emphasis on maths... I've definitely not met that criteria..
    I can only hope that I get AAA and a very high UMS in maths.. maybe they'll still take me...

    the rule is ∫ cos(ax+b) =1/a sin(ax+b) +c
    so in this case ∫ cos(x/2) =1/1/2 sin(x/2) +c
    = 2sin(x/2) +c
