    That's okay, no worries. Glad it helped. I don't know if I did enough for the A* though unfortunately

    Great paper! I stupidly didn't read the dif eqn question properly and didn't see x=0 t=0 so I didn't solve the equation, I just left he constant of integration there. How my marks will I lose for that? Spent the last 20 mins trying the last part of vectors instead of checking my work overall I think I got 65-69/75. Will that along with 62-66 in core 3 be enough for 180 ums?

    Grade boundaries seem to be a complete mystery this year, but yeah, it seems you'll get 180 with that, especially if you get the higher marks of that range.

    I did the same thing?! It was very sneaky not stating that x=0 and t=0 ..
    Hah I did that too, did it even say x=0 t=0?

    guys, on 7B which is a 6 marker, i forgot to differentiate y in the chain rule, i mean i did right but forgot to write down the y so i got 7/4, how many mark will they take out?
    I did exactly that, don't think it will be too bad

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think full ums was 65 in c4 last year. In my opinion this paper was very similar so you should be good

    CD223 mate, might be worth double checking vectors part incase im right, but tbh the way todays been I doubt it lol
    What did you get for the vectors part b and c? Did you use lambda as 4?

    judging from everyones reaction it was a lot easier than last year. threrefore A* for c4 is probably the same as june 2010 which was 67. I personally found this years harder but seems like not many people did

    It was an easy paper, no doubt, but literally everyone has made a ton of mistakes. People in my class IRL are incredibly clever and have all dropped a ton of marks from random places.

    And after all, grade boundaries don't necessarily represent how hard the paper was, just the average results of the people who took it.

    I think this is an easy paper that most people have not done so well in.
