    Is everyone confident? What were prelim results like.

    I got 85% in my prelim and am fairly confident.

    I got 78% in the prelim, although our teacher admitted our prelim was really hard and some of the questions were vague. I can get 95-100% in most past papers now, so hopefully I get a band 1.

    Yeah I'm doing units 1, 2 and 3. I'm not going to take the paper out but I usually remember the majority of the questions and the answers I give for these types of exams.

    Good luck to everyone! I might be on here tomorrow to discuss the answers if I get a chance, if not, I'll be on on Saturday. :woo:

    I would *really* appreciate having a look at paper 2
    However it was mega long so it'll probably take quite a while to type up, and I wouldn't be able to see the diagrams etc

    Thank you so much for the offer anyway

    Paper 1 was fairly easy. I thought the sphere question was odd.
    Paper 2 was very easy.

    I am hoping for around 90%.

    After the warm temperatures today it would only be fair for this years mathematics examination pass mark to be lowered-all levels. Several schools should have been closed today to all students due to the excessive temperatures of classrooms-with the emphasis on those sitting life direction dependant SQA exams. Anyone agree? However, atleast finally we are getting some sun folks-on the positive side.

    Totally agree with you, I was red in the face LOL when I came out the exam hall. Our school STILL had the heating on and the sun was shining right at us.:confused: :confused: :confused: I really hope this happens but I doubt it very much.

    Overall I think this was a very fair paper. I hope that we all do well!

    I actually found the first one a little challenging, maybe if I would have studied for it that wouldn't have been the case though. I found paper 2 pretty simple though.

    Maria has been asked to find the roots of the equation
    x^2+3x+5=0
    She decides to use the quadratic formula

     x=\displaystyle\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}


    (a) Calculate the value of b^2-4ac

    (b) Now explain why Maria cannot find the roots.
    There were two answers to part (b) that were extremely tempting:

    1) She's a woman. See this:

    2) She can, but they are not real and instead are complex conjugates.

    Was it because root 11 is a surd?

    Umm... here \sqrt{b^2-4ac}=\sqrt{-11} which is not a real number. So there exist no real roots, so Maria can't find them. (But, as mentioned before, she could find the complex roots).

    Didn't have a clue for B though.
