    Did anyone else think that cylinder question was awful? I spent half the exam doing part a) and b)! I couldn't get it to work - admittedly with the wrong formula - but it wasn't just because of that!
    It was worse than the one last year that I did
    Praying for low grade boundaries!

    Yeah the cylinder question seemed like a further maths one to me. Lots of algebra...

    Definitely harder than any of the past papers for sure.

    Everyone feels the same. The last two parts on that was alright

    I remember having to find the area of the trapezium then take away the area under the curve.

    I think 108/5 was what I got from the integration

    They were fine - rest of exam was pretty easy and standard so I'm not too worried about it
    really wanna see what's on C2 and D1 now though!

    Hopefully, C2 will follow the same style of questions, if so then I should be okay.
