# AEA Prep Thread - 25th June 2015 (Edexcel) watch

1. For the vectors one. Did anyone get numbers which were all over 3 for X
2. Found it quite a messy paper, but it wasn't overly horrible. Did everyone remember to discard the spurious solution in question 2?

Oddly, the vectors question was one of the few questions i could do.
Ive almost definitely failed, ill scrape a merit at best.
It wasnt part of my offer though so it doesnt really matter.

Lambda = 1.5, mu = 1.3333?

could someone help?
I'm in year 11 an I did this seeing as it was the last year. Now I think I got 57+ method marks so my question is if I fail would unis look down on this
No.Merit in y11 is very, very good

I found that 0.5 worked

It did, and x=-1 had to be discarded. Was that 9 marks?

Erm no...you're in year 11, for the vast majority of people it wouldn't be feasible to take it at that stage; they either won't care or will see the fact that you entered as a positive
edit: and if you get the merit then it'll look fantastic

I think it was something like (10/3, 11/3, 7/3) or (11/3, 10/3, 7/3).

I think it was something like (10/3, 11/3, 7/3) or (11/3, 10/3, 7/3).
would I lose 1 mark for not discarding x=-1

It may be one of the S+ marks, but you wouldn't lose any of the ordinary marks as part of the question.
11. Did anybody get sqrt101 / 2 for |AX|?

I got sqrt(30).
13. Ive got the paper. Ill post shortly.

16. If I got different methods with different answers one of which was correct, would I get marks
17. (Original post by 11234)
If I got different methods with different answers
Do you mean different answers with different methods?
18. (Original post by SH0405)
Do you mean different answers with different methods?
But one was correct
19. (Original post by 11234)
But one was correct
Should be fine. The people marking the paper will take into account the possibility of unorthodox but correct approaches to tackling a question.
20. I think I got 60 would that be a merit
