    Mark scheme looks good to me. I cocked up at the beginning of question 7, and got \alpha = 0.9273 because I did tan^{-1} (\dfrac{2}{1.5}) instead of tan^{-1} (\dfrac{1.5}{2}), goddamn read it wrong, then only checked the last parts of the question (as those were the difficult ones).

    I think in the mark scheme it will say "(and their alpha)", but will I lose accuracy marks throughout the whole of Q7 now, or only that first part? If they penalise me on every part for screwing up the first one I'm going to be mighty pissed.

    You'll only lose out on the first one, you'll lose two marks for it and your alpha will be applied throughout the rest of the question. So, you'll end up with all the marks minus two if you've done everything else right with your alpha.

    The other thing you might want to know, for reference, is that the maximum amount of marks you can lose for a misread, where you misread the question and carry your mistake through the entire question, doing everything else right, is 2. I read that in a mark scheme ages ago, and I think it still applies. It's pretty cool.

    I hope so. They are good like that I guess. So long as I have got 61 in this, M1 and (fingers crossed) on C4 on fri I should have got what I need.

    Its never easy to work out how to mark these things tbh.

    How many marks will I have lost (if thats the case) for using algebraic division in 8a instead of factorising and cancelling. My answer is equivalent, but not in the exact same form as the answer given in the unofficial markscheme. Also, this meant my answer for part b, although correct, is in a different from than what you would get if using an answer from part a that was obtained using factorisation and cancellation.

    I did. Pissed me off coz I revised that just before the exam aswell Got it mixed up with Cos :erm:

    Praying for method marks now though.

    Glad I'm not alone then, I was convinced I'd got everything right, then somebody told me their alpha value :rolleyes: Possibly the easiest style of question on the exam, equating coefficients, and I screwed up. I am so pissed :mad:

    ...
    If your answer is exact and equivalent, you won't lose marks. Only the easiest way will be shown on the unofficial mark scheme, there'll be a few alternates on the official.

    It's probably happened to everyone. Problem was that both \frac{a}{b} and \frac{b}{a} were both within the range. I even worked out \frac{a}{b} as well to see what it was :nothing:

    Oh well damage is done now. Praying my methods can get me extra marks. Got about 40 for correct answers plus any method marks so I'm happy

    Haha... I just realised I didn't complete the square.. I considered it then thought "Hey what am I doing this for? I can just put in the boundaries" and did that...
    I can't remember if that gave the same results. I hope it did else I'm not getting any marks for it just because I was basically lazy...

    Argh I wasn't pleased with this paper at all. It was really easy, i felt. Yet i made quite a few mistakes.

    I missed the second solution for t in 7d.
    Got the explanation for no inverse wrong.
    Got the range q wrong (only did y>=-3 no Y<=6)
    And completely blankly or no reason completely screwed up the |2x-5|=x+15 (probably the easiest question on the whole damn paper. :mad:

    Ah well. I reckon i got about 69/75. That should be enough for 80 UMS right? I kinda need an A for uni.

    ive lost between 9-11 marks. If its 60 for an A, ive got about 85 then! annoyed with silly mistakes. also are we sure the last question, that the only way to do the question is the method in the mark scheme? i did it differently, taking e to both sides hence cancelling the ln's out and then just using algebra to get x in terms of e!
    Ditto! I also lost 9-11 marks, and worked out the last Q that way! Im hoping we still get 2/4, as method still makes sense...i think.

    Well How did everyone find it?

    I attach a paper together with full answers, It took some effort to get them all written down neatly and 100% correct, so thanks would be nice

    Here are the scans, they are high quality so sorry about 20MB filesize

    http://rapidshare.com/files/39939545..._2010.rar.html

    As for me:
    I think I lost some marks on the range question, it was supposed to be g(x)>= 3 and g(x)<=6

    Also, for the question with time, I have put too many answers - completely forgot about the range limits

    Same thing with the supid "why there is no inverse" question, I forgot about many-one rule

    But rest was okay, I think I lost at most 4-5 marks, hope that boundaries will be low, I was repeating 88UMS from last June.
    Thank you, you're a star
    According to this I lost about 4-5 marks max as well in the same places as you, but I'm gonna say 10 just to avoid disappointment :p:

    @ tomcoe123

    Would 69/75 not be 90 UMS?
