    The thing is, although it was really hard and there's a couple of bits I know I got wrong...overall I think I did decent, and if they grade boundaries are low which they should be as everyone seems to have found it impossible, I think I should have actually done okay...
    Likewise. I mean I looked at Arsey's solutions and even though I did crap in comparison to past papers, there's still a chance I might get the grade I need

    This is exactly what I thought! The questions required more thought and weren't "standard" but I don't understand the "questions not on spec" "impossible" comments. It was OK apart from the tanx question...?
    Yeah, apart from the tanx question, I felt the paper was ok....even though I fudged up the functions lol

    It must be a typo, it is 1/k. Don't know where they've got -1/k from

    You'd think they would have picked it up when checking for errors, especially considering it's such a vital page for most students

    Exactly! Unlucky for some who will just end up memorising that formula sheet without spotting the mistake

    I fear C4 will have no effect on my grade because of the disaster that was C3. Man you can't just lower grade boundaries to fix a paper like that. Whatever you think of it's difficulty I think it was a poorly designed paper; creating a good exam paper that is accessible to a wide range whilst still being able to differentiate between higher able candidates and lesser able candidates is a skill Edexcel haven't mastered it seems. Now we're going to get some squashed, heavily shifted boundaries that will result in people getting grades they don't deserve, be it for better or worse.

    Still though, focusing on C4 because I want the moral high ground. I want a really high grade in C4 just so I can at least tell myself that I was capable of getting a good mark in C3. Going well so far! Did the 2011s today. 75/75 in Jan and 70/75 in June. Am achieving quite a stable A* at the moment so am quite ready for the exam I feel. It's mostly the silly mistakes at this point that cost me...

    UMS doesnt change, raw marks do though so it may not be don't doubt yet, focus hard for c4 and whatever happens happens, but hopefully you'll be happily surprised
    Ahh thanks ^^
    I'll try my best!
    It's just really hard to focus on C4 when I have 3 other exams next week to revise for
    I'm sure you'll do well too!

    There was nothing awfully hard about this paper tbh yes, i know, it looked nothing like the past papers, but the questions were clearly C3 grade.

    Question 4 in excersie 3d part a)


    Why do you divide the answer by 2? Cause that's the answer in the book


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    When you take out the factor of 4 at the beginning you need to bring the power with it so it would be 4^(1/2) which = 2. So the whole thing should be multiplied by 2, not 4
