    Its the other way around i.e. 2/x^2 becomes 1/x^2
    UGH ok, thanks
    I knew I would make a stupid mistake somewhere

    Hi Mr M,

    First of all, just want to say I really admire you for doing all this for all these exams, especially as I read you were in a meeting till 6. It's really kind of you to come home after such a long day, and help put our minds.

    I have a quick question: for question 5 ii) I wrote 'transformation parallel to y axis by scale factor 1/2.' I wrote transformation instead of stretch.

    Will I lose both marks for that?
    Drop 1 mark.

    And you are welcome. I don't mind giving up my time to reassure people who are nervous about their exams.

    For question 6, I put [square root]40 and not 2[square root]10 but in some working out for another question, I referred to it as 2[square root]10, will I get the answer mark?

    How many marks Mr M would I have lost on the last question if I knew (or I thought i knew) there were two solutions, but i recognise the fact that the questions said Point A and not point(s), and I gambled as a complete 50/50 gamble and put down the answer as -2,-27 and didn't put anything about the other potential coordinates?
    They'll probably assume you knew to disregard the other point. You might get full marks (lose 1 at most).

    For 5iii I put scale factor 2, because it was 1/x^2 transformed to 2/x^2 (I think) - wouldn't scale factor 1/2 change it to 1/2x^2 ?
    The graph y=kf(x) is a stretch of the graph y=f(x) by scale factor k parallel to the y axis.

    Your curves are the wrong way round.

    I generally think that this paper was slightly harder than the one in january. I hope core 2 goes well!

    any idea what the grade boundaries will be like?
    No sorry. I don't like to guess.

    Mr M, for question 5, the one about sketching a graph, I only sketched the positive quadrant, will I lose any marks for this?

    1 mark
    Thanks, a lot.

    Also, in question 6ii) I accidently used (0,4) as my centre instead of (0, -4), provided my workings were sound would I be able to gain 1 mark as I did get the x-coordinate correct?

    Cheers for these answers!

    If I stupidly misread perpendicular as parallel on question 8, but finished the question and found an equation for the line where the gradient was 1/3, which was the correct equation for that gradient, how many marks could I have gotten out of the 7 available?

    cheers in advance
    Drop 3 probably.

    I thought the one in January was a million times harder! Mostly because of that 10 mark question and I wasn't that prepared for it

    hey MR M when can you do the edexcel c1 paper model answers?
    I don't do Edexcel for A Level but Arsey does. He is likely to ride to your rescue after 12 hours have elapsed.

    Probably get 2 marks out of 3.

    You are welcome.

    You're wrong. The cute writing won me over.
    I've tried to uprate you so many times only to be told I need to rate other members first

    Which other modules will you be doing answer threads for?

    I didn't put question 8 in integer form.

    On question 10 I got that k=-5 but when putting k back into the original equation and differentiating it I got dy/dx=-3x^2-6x+4-k to be dy/dx=-3x^2-6x+4-5 instead of dy/dx=-3x^2-6x+4-(-5) so got dy/dx=-3x^2-6x-1.

    I carried this error forwards into the last part of the question and did dy/dx=9, then put it into quadratic form but it had no real roots. I couldn't work out where I went wrong so in the last few minutes i just went with it and proved that it had no real roots which I knew was wrong.

    How many marks will I lose in total?
