    I'm thinking 56 A, 65-66 A* and 73=74 for 100 UMS..
    66 is the lowest grade boundary for an A* (Jun 09)

    Compare the 2 papers and see what you think

    compress it (into a zip file) or just split it (by taking screen shots).

    4 marks for solving the DE (part a)
    1 mark for testing the limit as x approaches infinity
    For the testing the limit question would it be a B1 ft?

    Lmao I did the dumbest thing for the last question. I found the area of the semi circle. Then I found the area of c1(the circle I think) with arccos3/4 as upper limit. I then found c2 with the same upper limit. Then I subtracted Area(c2) from Area(c1)

    I then subtracted this final answer from the area of semi circle (call it A(Total))
    I then did A(Total) x 2 to get area they were looking for. I also gave an answer to 2 d.p which was about 30. something.

    Would I lose marks for using this method?

    You wouldn't lose marks for anything except *maybe* the SF

    Exactly. I worked my ass off trying to understand complex transformations. Such a waste.

    I did since, I made quite a lot of silly mistake. I wamted to do the FP2 paper first, but the invigilators gave me M1 first, so loat concentration afterwards

    Just hoping I got a B at least.
    I had choice between which one to do first but I did m1 first as it was the one in front of me lol. But I found the m1 very easy I think I got 100 ums for that. But fp2 was horrendous probably got between a C-D for that.

    Q7, Q8b attached.
    Thank you very much, your explanation is very clear and concise. Now I figured out what I did wrong

    I made silly calculation mistake on question 8 and 7 (c) I changed u=lnx and substitute that.. obviously e and ln cancels out together but I left it. I'm not sure if I can get the mark for it

    I guess I have to study for M2 but that's my main weakness so I'm really worried. Anyway, thanks again. Hope you do well in other exams too.

    What happened to arsey?
    Edexcel told him to stop doing model solutions.

    No worries. We have other people and model solutions will be up when the papers are available tomorrow
