    I'm retaking this exam as I only got 66UMS in January I'm hoping for an A grade now when I've done all the past papers
    Also this exam is clashing with FP1 so I'm gonna have almost 4 hours worth of maths exams on that day :/

    can you help me with a question, i get it but i dont :/ if you get what i mean ha :/
    its question 11i on the june 2012, it gives the x values as -0.5, -2, and 5. its asks for it in the form 2x^3, so you changes on of the roots to -1, by multiplying by two. And this changes the y intercept. but doesnt that change the whole cubic? if you get me :/ dont know how to explain myself

    Oooh I remember this question from the mock!
    Well what I did was multiply out the brackets of the cubic, and once I got the equation I multiplied it all by 2 and came out with the correct answer
    If you get what I'm saying haha

    I was set on an A grade in January as well, haha, well until I saw the paper. I panicked 25minutes into the exam :/

    We'll be fine, don't worry! I'm more worried about Further Maths Seriously considering dropping it next year haha.

    P.S You are very pretty by the way (assuming that's you in your avatar haha!)

    Are you talking about the q3 cd=kr one (or something like that) on section A? Because that one was super weird Jan 2013 was a pretty tough paper...

    i think a few people in my class got it, yeah same here, it didn't look too bad when our teacher went through it, i guess nobody was expecting anything like it in the exam..
