# Edexcel S1 A Level Maths watch

1. I complete and utterly monged out on the F(Y) question, cya 8 marks, christ im gonna be sick
2. my GOOOOOOOD that was hard.
3. The Venn diagram???
4. venn diagram was weiiiiiirddd !! apart from that, it was okay
5. Venn diagram : what I drew : a circle in the middle representing B .... and 3 circles around B (F,H, C) intersecting it ... and F, H and C don't intersect.. i dont remember the values in them though
6. Okay. Could have been worse.

I want to know if I got my venn diagram right though....

Come on Arsey!!!

7. The first 4 questions were very easy I though, then came the 5th I did most of it but got stuck on the last one. The 6th was probably the hardest normal distribution I've seen, I don't know about others though.

BTW, what did you guys do for the Venn Diagram?

What the hell was that Venn diagram question about?!

My teacher said it included 5 circles. One in the middle and the other four on the sides..... a lot for 4 four marks
9. think for the venn diagram you just had to draw B in middle, having three other sets overlapping with B but not with each other. does that sound right?
10. Paper was alright except some silly mistakes i made because i didn't get time to check over the paper :/
11. This paper traumatised pretty much everyone at my college. Personally I didn't think it was horrifically difficult overall, besides one or two questions, but I found it took me FAR longer than any of the practise papers. I'm sure I've missed out marks because I didn't have enough time to thoroughly check everything.

Thank ****! That's what I did, I spent around 10 minutes trying to figure it out.
14. Tough but on the whole pretty manageable.

No idea with the Venn Diagram question, however.

I had that, and the middle of the B circle not overlapping had 0 in

I remember one overlap had 16 in...I think.... And one had 35 maybe? I really can't remember

I remember by probability of the bus came to 1/4 though

But yes I did the same as you for the venn diagram

16. That paper was nothing short of horrific.
I think I'd be lucky to get a C.

I think it was something like 16,33 and 20something.
19. Minus that dang Venn Diagram and my retarded mistake on the cumulative distribution question I thought that was a pretty good paper
20. Thought the paper was generally alright!

Although the examiners try to choke you with some questions: the Venn diagram and 6)c) (normal distribution) were right ********!

Hopefully the mark scheme will be up soon!
