# OCR (NOT MEI) - D1 Exam - January 2012

1. Howdy everyone...

How did everyone go?

I found the paper a bit easy, hopefully will scrape an A first time taking.

P.S - I self taught myself the whole module, teachers at school are rubbish!

EDIT: Why the neg? Offended I was able to self-teach this module? Ego-problems? I'd like to hear.
2. Was such a simple and clear exam !! I think they made it that easy because of the mistake they made last June ! I also self taught it to myself !
3. That was a beauty of a paper compared with june 11

Part a my outputs were 8, 2, 1 and 0
Part b algorithm never terminated
8. I think I got 967 for the 8 mark question ?
9. I got 967 for the 8 marker too, 3 lower than my original upper bound of 970?
10. Anyone got the paper or the questions? If so I'll do a full set of answers

This
12. I got 967 too! I thought I did it wrong because it wasn't so hard for an 8 marker. This paper made my day!!!
13. was there an answer of 1013 somewhere in the paper?
14. I did this exam then realised on the simplex question that i was doing the wrong exam board. I then had to do the MEI one during the afternoon
15. guys, 1013 answer somewhere on the paper?
16. i don't remember getting an answer of 1013 but I could be wrong, can you remember what question it was on? (general idea)?

I got 1014 for my upper bound
I think I got 970 for my upper bound :\ aaah the joys of d1
19. got 970 as my upper bound.
really hoping for an A, got A's in every past paper but today, i messed up the 8 marker and got a couple of others wrong too.
really disappointed, i think i'll resit in the summer, even if i get like a b or something. :/
20. I got something like 998 for the upper bound, and looking at the previous post that's wrong. poop.

Did people x=6 for the simplex?
