    reassuringly low... surprised january's wasn't higher...
    Really? I thought Jan was very hard, the hardest in my opinion.

    typically brighter students take it in Jan, which does lead to negative skew .

    If you haven't done it yet, do the specimen paper. It is pretty challenging.

    you can work it out yourself.

    Look at the grade boundaries I posted

    subtract B boundary from the A boundary

    add this to the A boundary to get 90UMS

    add it to this to get 100UMS


    However, if this exceeds 75..... then 75/75 will be 100UMS; 90UMS will then be exactly half way between 75 and the boundary for an A.

    In the January 2010 paper, in the last question, you get the following composite function:
    fg(x) = (x - 1)^2 + 3

    Wouldn't the range be fg(x) > 3, rather than fg(x) > 3, since 3 can be obtained if x = 1?

    Thanks.

    That's what I thought as well, perhaps mark scheme error.

    i can never figure out how to do the 2marker question where after you put an equation in the form: R(cosx+O), it asks you what the maximum value is (which is +R), but i get stuck on where it asks "find the smallest possible x value where this maximum occurs"
    how am i meant to do that?
    The way I do it is:
    eg. 5cos(x-53.1)
    Max value will be 5 when cos(0)=1 (as you can see on the cos graph, it goes from 1 to -1 on the y-axis. So you cannot get anything higher than 5)
    5cos(x-53.1)=5
    cos(x-53.1)=1
    x-53.1=0
    x-53.1

    Sorry for the rubbish explanation. Q_Q
