    Hah I did that too, did it even say x=0 t=0?
    Yeah I thought about ti afterwards and it said initially (meaning t=0) the pond was empty therefore x=0 too

    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's possible I guess, but it's very difficult to judge from peoples reactions on here. I just took a quick look at 2010 and I feel as if today's paper was more similar to last year's. Can't see full ums being higher than 68 tbh that's assuming it was slightly easier today

    Anyone know how many marks I'd get for the angle between the vectors question? I got the wrong final answer. It did te right method. Pretty sure I just copied a value down wrong somewhere or something. Also, for the minimum value of the harmonic form question I had x as a negative, didn't realise it had a range In the question, anyone know how many I'd have dropped in that as well? Thanks

    I found c=1 in 8(a) but didn't finish the rearrange bit to get into the form they asked, how many marks will I lose at most?

    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.
    Yes that is right but reading other peoples marks 65 will not be 100ums. I think if its an A* i will be very happy

    That is very cheeky of them! Maybe 2 marks lost for this mistake?

    Yeah I reckon so. It was 7 marks so the last two for substituting values to find C, and then actually finding C, so provided the rest is right 4/5 marks I guess.

    Guys for Q5c) I did not use a quadratic in the terms of SINQ. I got a quadratic by making the cartesian equation of the curve equalling the equation of the normal of the curve? My quadratic equation then gave me two x values which I subbed back into to x= cos2t which got me the right answer somehow - cant exactly remember my method. Nonetheless, will I drop marks for not putting the quadratic for not in terms of sinQ? I thought they added that line to help candidates but it just confused me so I went my own way round of answering it?

    The differential equation C = 1, not 2?

    Agreed, other than that they all look like the correct working, useful for working out how many marks I've got on vectors aha

    I screwed up E so much :L got 0 on that, and looks like 0 on the gradient on P too :/

    This person has written BE is length = ½AC, when it should be DE. Therefore the other value of µ should have been 6.

    On page 10 when you have gone to find c your power on the LHS has changed to -1/2 instead of 1/2. So based on your previous workings c would come out to be 5.

    I would say a bit lower, maybe 66-68?
