    Either 6 or 7 marks I think. 7 sounds about right. I think you would only lose a couple marks.

    Does anyone know how many marks question 8a was out of? I didn't realise you had to find the constant once you integrated so I just rearranged it to x=f(t) but left C in. How many marks do you reckon I'd lose if I did everything else correct? Thanks

    on the trig question r(cosx-angle) did anyone get r=root29 and angle +1.19??? Anyone?? Think that's what I put... And then x at max value 5.09 or something?
    I got that☺️

    Am I the only one who put the x coordinate for Q in terms of cos? I got  cos(\frac{3}{2}) as my value of p was  \frac{3}{4}

    For the differential equation what values did you have to substitute for x and t?
    They worded it sneakily and said that "initially the pond is empty", or something to that effect. Therefore, the values you subbed in were t = 0, x = 0.

    Is there an unofficial mark scheme? That went so badly for me there's no point me making one.

    i'm sure it was -1.19 because max value when cos(x+1.19)=1, this happens when cos(0) so x+1.19=0 so x=-1.19

    Yes that's what x came to but they wanted the maximum value, and as you know there were two values in the range (1.19 and 2pi - 1.19) you got 5.09 .

    yes or when it is 2pi.
    They specified x >0 and <2pi.
    therefor x max was 2pi-1.19 to 3.s.f :P

    Fml i thought of putting these and I didn't... How many marks will I lose if I didn't find C?
