    How many marks would you get out of 7 if you got the integrating factor but couldn't integrate etc? (Question 4 b)
    Minimum 3 I believe. I think you may get a further one after that just for attempting to integrate the RHS but I'm not sure.

    Did anyone else still have an e^u they were unable to get rid of in their equation after they'd substituted in Q7a? If the x^2 in front of the first term of equation 1 was instead an x I'd have got the answer.

    True if even hitler couldn't do it what chance did we have?

    My thoughts: dreadful. I'm usually confident after exams, but this was just so unlike an FP2 paper.

    1. Inequalities: standard
    2. Series: really difficult to spot the method to sum the terms that didn't cancel. I didn't reach the required answer.
    3. Complex roots: standard
    4. First-order: completely messed it up. The change in variable confused me greatly, and didn't spot the easiest integrating factor ever in part b). Ended up with an integrating factor of 1/(cosec theta + cot theta)^2
    5. Taylor series: standard. Worded a bit weirdly, but otherwise nothing away from the norm.
    6. Second-order: tricky to do the transformation. Has came up many times recently and I got confused with my chain rule. But otherwise standard once you get the ball rolling.
    7. de Moivres: standard
    8. Polar coordinates: was a little confused by the decimal limit. If you've done past papers you would've spotted that you needed the area of the sector, then integrate curve C1.

    I knew Edexcel would've doubled-down on FP2 given the past few papers have been relatively easy (64-67 for an A).

    I think the grade boundaries will be:
    A*: 59
    A: 55
    B: 49

    What numerical answer did people get for the last part of Q8? I got 63.4 or something but now I think I messed up the numbers somewhere.

    I'm trying to total up my expected marks, can someone remind me what this question was "Tan(x) (5M) + (5M)"? Apparently its Question 6 but i really cant remember it...I'm worried

    EDIT: oh, it was the taylors expansion of (x-Pi/3)? or something like that, maybe pi/4?

    What do you think the 100 boundary will be? I reckon 72

    I think they'll be harsher than what you've said imo

    Oh god I hope you're right about those grade boundaries. But I will keep my expectations high and assume it will be around 66 for A*. 60 for an A.

    It was on the hard side but by no means impossible. The only one I'd consider 'very hard' was the integrating of e^2x(sinx) dx. Series was also tricky but everything else has come up many a time in previous papers. I reckon :

    65 - 68 for 90 ums
    58 - 61 for 80 ums

    I'd kill to see the paper again as I had very little to time to check my solutions!

    Does anyone remember the first order differentials questions with p, q and r?? The first part of the question.
