    not bad, bout the same but i think i made a few more mistakes on that. looking at about 62-64/72 rather than 66-68/72 on c4

    Yes same here really.

    It kept me occupied for a good portion of the time though

    M2 =
    It's my worst unit, I need around 60/100 for an A overall. So that's kind of reassuring, but I find M2 really hard

    (Original post by Head)
    don't really know, i think most found it hard. only me and one or two others out of about 12 bossed it.
    :p:

    Well with my school, I only talked to a few people. One of them said he probably got a C, but this was in a very uncertain tone, so he probably got a D. One of them said that some questions were hard and some straight forward. In maths I think if you find some questions hard (i.e. 2 or more depending on the marks), then you're pretty screwed.

    Also my teacher didn't teach vectors well - well she taught it in 3 lessons, so I guess my school doesn't really give a good account. Also all 3 of my friends I talked to said that they couldn't do the differential equation question (one of them is pretty good at maths, he got an A at AS). They didn't realise that it was meant to be done simultaneously

    i knew that, i just messed up the easy integration part of it!

    yes the key with the differential equation was to find the constant of integration in terms of K (the proportionality constant) and then use the second set of data to find k such that you could then put in A=3000 to find t.

    yeh, they normally do them so that when t = 0, a = 0 and then c is easy to fidn but it still wasn't too challenging.

    I think in most cases, if not all, t will be 0 because in the syllabus it mentions that students are expected to find the constant in the initial blablabla..... something like that

    it didnt apply in this one though i dont think. even though it would make sense that no area was burned when the fire started.

    yep I think the safest way was the one described above.

    Anyway, complete change of gear for tomorrow as I've got a 2 hour german literature paper

    yeah I think if you set area = 0, then t became infinite. Presumably true, since it gives the forest time to grow back, but not very helpful really

    haha awesome, i prefer the old chemical spillage than the forest fire for what its worth.

    yeah give me a nice leaky bucket anyday . The thing about not letting A=0 at t=0 was a really sneaky trick to play, the question kind of implies that it should be true but then the equation you create doesn't accept it.

    i should have got that and 100% it but nevermind we all make mistakes.

    but 1/a^2 integrating to -a is pretty sloppy.

    lol happens to the best of us, I remember nearly doing that, in addition to writing 0.002 as 0.0002 before realising. Phewee. Btw what are you doing next year head?

    natsci at Durham, I'm gonna do a joint honours in two of maths physics and philosophy I think. The way these maths papers have gone has given me a rush of enthusiasm for maths, which is nice

    manc will be great, I went there recently for a chemistry conference and was amazed that such a city existed in the north. It's really modern and swish without turning into a london clone. Do you think your grades are on target for it?

    need AAB, looks like ive got the A in maths which is the most important. im capable of getting AAA butm im hoping they'll let me in with ABB especially if i hage plenty of marks to spare in maths. I'm about 10 marks over the A at AS in the other two. And the north is better than the south.

    I hear that, man :cool:
    cheaper stuff and nicer scenery, fantastic stuff Also I'm a middlesbrough fan, so it just makes sense to stay up north.

    Good luck with the rest of the exams, let me know how they all go!
