    It was definitely a harder paper than the other years, so I'm guessing the grade boundaries will be lower: 70-75% for an A. However everything on the paper seemed quite logical, hopefully I managed to get 100%.

    It was probably the hardest one yet but hopefully I didn't mess up too bad and will be able to make up for it in c2 and s1.

    Tbh I don't think it was that hard, it was just that they requiered many steps and it was easy to trip up.

    Massive emphasis on surds in that paper. Not impossible, but definitely more challenging than any previous years.

    I've just being doing Solomon papers and your IYBG papers TeeEm everyday for the last week and so in comparison that paper seemed fairly easy

    I don't think it followed the normal structure so much this year which has thrown people off! Including me!

    what was your x coordinate for question 10? and if you can remember how did you get there?

    did you make f'(x) = -1/2 then go from there?
