yeah it was 64 for june'03 n 62 the yr before that
this yr HAS to b lower tho..the paper was way trickier than any of those past papers
i guess around 57-58?

Anyone here doing m5 on friday?
Yeah. Are you prepared?
9. i am doing M5 too, for me my only thing tht i'm afraid of is varying mass!
10. yea m5 on friday i guess im prepared lol

I think you're right. Contributors to this thread, by definition, care about the paper and what they did on it. Candidates who made a real pig's ear of the whole paper and have consequently concluded only that the world is unfair, are somewhere else...

I'm here clutching at straws, trying to gather some hope. Like hope that the answer to 6 7 and 8 were nice white clean paper.
12. i think im weird i found question 6 and 8 the easiest on the paper and made silly calculation errors elsewhere for example 1 b ...wtf!
13. if I get only 30, how many percent (UMS) do you guys think I get. I got 386 for the first 4 but I messed up this time. Damn me. I was just too lazy these days
14. i got m4 nxt thursday so i finish last

lol..im sorry
dont worry tho..the boundaries shall b low
all hail

im off to sleep...rest my poor brain
16. I found that to be a 'friendly' paper but the other candidate at my centre found it very hard.

Q1(a) 0.5arcsin2x-(1/4)rt[1-4x^2]+C
(b)0.372

Q2:Proof?

Q3 (6pia^2)/5

Q4(a)Proof
(b)(1/4)(e^2-1)

Q5:Proof?

Q6: Proof?

Q7:Proof? 2rt3 for c.

Q8: Proof but the answer to the last part was +-ln[(1/2)(3+rt5)]
17. hmmm i think i got 0.1.....for 1b and what question 4b asking? (so that i can remember what i put :P)

4b was the application of the reduction formula.
20. I thought it went suprisingly well. I managed to prove q6 (integral of x arcosh x dx between x=1 and x=2 iirc) (I used substitution x=cosh u after realising parts would take all night). I suprised mysaelf, I am by far the weakest in my FM class and I haven't a clue what I will have been predicted.

The only ones I know I didn't get were the first intrinsic one (s = 4sin (t/2) iirc, I got it with cos2t and a sint or something like that) and proving the logrithmic form of arsech x. There is probably a cunning way of doing it but I couldn't remember it.
