    No it is 331 days because at exactly 330 days, the half life hasn't yet been achieved so you have to do it to the next day :-)
    Yeah that's what I thought but I wasn't too sure because the way they asked for the answer was weird.

    I found it to be a nice paper, until Question 6. Dropped 5 marks on vectors at least, a futher four on question 7 and then 7 marks on the final question of the paper. Honestly, until that point I thought I would get full UMS.

    A paper which I got almost certainly below 59 on doesn't scream 'generous' to me personally. I think Questions 7 and 8 were horrible, and the final vector question was also pretty disgusting. By far the hardest C4 paper I've done anyway, I don't usually find myself unable to do more than one 5+ mark question, and this week both the C3 and C4 papers have been like that.

    I'm thanking God for my UMS last year, else I would be screwed. Disappointed that I definitely didn't get an A*, because 90% of the past papers I've done I've got an A* in... Biology paper was also harder than previous years

    They've been renowned for that this year though in other subjects as well as Maths! I think I aced C3 and this paper went really well apart from the last vectors question but I can sacrifice a few marks here and there and probably still get my A* so I'm happy! :-)

    I got C = pi

    What was the final answer though?

    If you aced the C3 paper, you deserve an A* without even sitting this paper, wow

    I got the same for c, but I couldn't get the final answer- no idea how to get it at all!

    I THINK that I got sin3y-3ycos3y=0.5tan^-1(3x/2)+pi. I can't remember exactly though but I think that's what I got.

    I think I got sin3y - 3ycos3y = 6tan^-1(2x/3) + pi or whatever order the sin and cos went in and the thing in the tan function

    Did anyone else get the gradient for the implicit differentiation question to be e^4/2 ?

    Should have been a 1/6th rather than 6 I think because the 6 was on the top of what you found and you wanted it to cancel.

    Yep, it is.

    That wasn't...terrible?

    That was a pretty average paper for me and would've been okay if my core three had gone well. Shame.

    Genuinely think that I had only dropped one mark on C3 (the functions one - I said that y had a maximum at the x coordinate which I think was something like 8-8ln8 but I can't remember for sure - and forgot to show that d^2y/dx^2<0) but I suppose that I will see on results day HAHA!

    Damn I was debating this!

    How many out of 7 do you think I'll get for it, since everything else is fine?

    Why did you need to show d^2y/dx^2 < 0? Surely it's known that that point was the maximum point and it was only 5 marks.

    The nearest day to your answer is surely day 330, not 331.
