    Thank you And well done to u too! Sounded like we did similar stuff for alot of the II questions from ur earlier post.
    Indeed I am sitting on around 90.
    I just need a high 1 in III and A* AFM n i think tbat will be enough

    ah yes I forgot ur offer is 1,S. But yeah I cant imagine theyd reject you cus u got like 5 marks of an S when thatd mean ur still one of the better scorers. I bet ull get an S in III though

    Insight314 I'm really sorry for being such a bother but could you post the paper please?

    See above.

    Just realised for STEP II Q1 I got the correct two intersections but idiotically drew the graphs with 4 intersections. Very disappointed now .
    That's 1 mark docked off at most. Wouldn't worry about it too much.

    It's more so that combined with the fact that I failed to eliminate p from the two equations, but somewhat relieving I guess, thought I'd lose like 3 for the graph...
    Do you reckon low GBs for this one?

    Would literally sit on a cactus for low GB's. Shamika reckons it's 70 for a 1, which might mean I'm dead on the boundary, but lots of people seem to have found it easy ( ) so might creep up a bit.

    Can someone estimate my mark please 😞:

    1: Did the sketch and found both intersections but didn't get very far on the first part, found gradients and equations of tangent (one of which I think was correct)

    2: Not much, showed a+b+c was a factor then found x=1 on the cubic

    3: showed that f'(x) was fn-1 and that a was negative

    Differential eqn: verified both equations and proved the result for z, then differentiated v but didn't get very far

    Integration: did first three parts correctly then next to nothing of the last part

    Other integration: drew a vague sketch with some trapezii, couldn't prove the result. Got the three approximations and showed the error.

    Q13: Proved all three results but only had continuity corrections on the first one

    Hey at least you get something in return for getting two 1s in II and III...

    But yeah hoping for low GBs, STEP I was pretty bad, II wasn't great and III will probably not be an S. I'd love to get just one S but that's not happening I don't think. One paper would just have to have really low GBs and the examiner would also have to be really lenient with me.

    Indeed.
    I am feeling ok though since my 1 is rather high. I doubt my college will reject since they take loads of 1,3 and 1,2 from pool.

    Perspectives; it's just going to add insult to injury when I fail to get 1's in II and III.

    I know how you feel, at least III has reasonable boundaries, just going to have to hope that the examiners don't go full vectors/complex numbers on us. A proper DE that requires us to, you know, actually solve stuff would be welcome. :lol:

    Could someone please estimate how many marks I would have gotten on this paper please?
    2.Full
    3. Every part but slightly poor explanation of 1 root for odd n, everything else perfect.
    4. Didn't show the second inequality and didn't find X or tan theta at the end. All else done.
    7. All complete up to last part, got the integral to be of form 1/cosx(cosx+sinx) couldn't see way from there.
    11. Did up to last part where I couldn't explain why alpha>beta

    Either Q8 or Q9 depending on which has a higher mark
    8. Evaluated the first parts correctly. For the evaluations of Es I simply substituted in different values of m into 2/2m-1 that gave the correct Es so probably not correct. Then showed the error to be 1/4r^4.
    9. Did part i)

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, can we actually have a DE that we're meant to solve?
    And yeah, that's my biggest worry. Just an onslaught of vectors/complex numbers. Then I'm finished.

    Goodness what wouldn't I give for a lovely decent differential equation rounded off with a decent initial condition. I'd probably do a little jig in the exam hall if I saw something like that. But this is all wishful thinking, isn't it?
    There shall be showers of vectors,
    This is the promise of Siklos :P :P

    For those who didn't get the reference I've changed the words of a hymn called 'Showers of Blessings"
