    oh brilliant, thanks very much for your help.
    welcome! It's a lot better helping than actually doing questions - they both help me revise, one's just a lot more... exciting!(?)

    Solomon papers are papers written by solomon press. They're harder than the actual papers and range from A-L (in increasing difficulty). You can get them from Here
    The solomon papers actually get harder? I swear paper B was the hardest out of them all. :eek:

    they're supposed to. But then again, maybe they do, and maybe you find something simple difficult and something difficult simple!

    No. I got bummed over hard.

    Looking forward to C3. Been getting around high 80's low 90's in all the papers I have been doing. Hopefully it is a fairly simple paper with not much of arcsin etc, missed the lesson on those and never caught up...
    Damn, sorry to hear

    Just want to wish everyone the best of luck for tomorrow. There are these videos a guy makes on youtube which might be a good way to spend the final night before the exam, check them out: http://www.youtube.com/user/ExamSolutions (he does all the modules, so just search for the C3 ones) (:


    Cape! It has been far, far too long since we've spoken. Though in honesty I don't blame you for leaving TSR for a bit.
    I know!!! Yeah, TSR was kinda killing me mentally lol. Are you taking this exam tomorrow too? Good luck, Woodyyyyy :heart:

    Hey guys, I have a question about something that has been bothering me... I know it may seem elementary and all, but:

    When we are asked to do composite function questions such as 'find gf(3)' can we find f(3) first THEN substitute f(3)'s value into g(x)? Or do we have to substitute f(x) for x in g(x)?

    Thanks!

    Should show which was found the hardest
    Does anyone know where I can get my hands on the grade boundaries that includes marks? Like you need 72-75 to get 100%. 70 to get 95%. I can only get the summer 07 and 08 on the website.

    You don't need anything else from those boundaries. They're basically saying, say for June 2006, that 56 raw marks out of the 75 total converts to 80 UMS points. Check the UMS thread to learn about how to find 100% UMS etc.

    Can someone post difficult curve sketching/transformation questions?

    Now, that was just a plain retarded question on Edexcel's behalf. How the hell did they expect to sketch that?

    @Superman, no it's simple really. Unless we're talking about two different things here...

    it's not that bad, you have the turning point and where the curve crosses the axes, now it's just a matter of joining up the points!

    normal people found the June 06 hard, the Jan 07 question 8 was hard.
    @ unamed cheers but i've already done the Solomon papers.

    I'm assuming that they will increase the difficulty because of the A*.90% plus
