    What a horrible paper - i was expecting something that i could walk a 90 in, and now im gonna be very happy with a low B.

    Questions 2, most of 6 and the bit on finding part d in the vectors question were f****** horrible.

    In a way i'm glad to hear that it was generally a disaster of a paper - i really jope that the moderators are in a good mood to move those grade boundaries...

    I reckon they'll moderate this one up quite a bit. Just about everyone from my lot said they found it hard. That's also considering the fact that it's a grammar school; and one that only takes from the top 2% of the country.

    I have to say I thought it was poorly paced. There were quite a few people who didn't finish.

    Yes, they give you a mark out of 100. Considering there were only 90 marks, it would be hard not to!

    EVERYONE in my school found it hard - even the Further Mathematicians (they normally find it easier than the rest of us anyway)!

    Some of it I think would have been alright if I had just had longer - I finished section A with 20 minutes left and question 6 was just so horrible! I think question 7 was alright, though a bit ahrder than I was hoping, given the rest of it. There seemed parts of most of it I couldn't do though :confused:

    Sorry to repeat the trend but I did so well in amths last year I was kind of hoping I would just be able to do it all nicely as it was probably the only subject I stood any chance of getting an A in. Though I suppose they will change the boundaries nicely so maybe it'll turn out alright.... please nice OCR MEI people? :rolleyes:

    damnit, i got 10000 for the original value, and it had to increase from that so it can't be any less than that, unless i remember wrong I got about 20000 i think
