    Worst friggin exam ever, OCR take the p out of P*ss. I hate them, b*stards. Hardest exam I've had to do, considering I've done all the past papers from 97 onwards and averaging 90 per cent on them, with this one I was skipping questions left right and centre totally annoyed.

    Hopefully i can get around half marks then hope my methods will bring me close to a C or a B or summat lol

    considering 68% was an A last time round i think that it will more than likely be lower (i damn hope so :mad: lol)

    They show what grade you get, basically.
    The number of points needed for an A,B,C,D etc.
    If everyone does badly, then the exam was too hard, and the grade boundaries get lowered, allowing a certain percentage of people to get each grade (or something like that).
    And it applies to the paper, wherever you take it.
    ok say i get 50/75 and thats 67% and its one of the highest grades... do i get like 80% or what? coz it will make no difference if not coz i need 360 points to get C over all

    What they do, is the paper's boundaries will be lowered, and this will also effect the entire courses boundaries, meaning the 360 will probably be lowered by whatever the C grade in the paper is lowered by.

    Is 360 all you need for a C?
    I thought it was more than that.
    I did better than i thought then!

    1) d/dx lnx|cosecx + cotx| = -cosec²x

    * Im wondering whether you can just take the d/dx over to get the integral and use the trig identity in the formula book

    cosec²x = -ln|cosecx + cotx|

    -cosec²x = ln|cosecx + cotx|

    LHS = RHS

    I know there is a constant involved in the intergration but im hoping you can get way with that.

    Well yeah, theres loads of them here as a matter of fact, and they actually found it a little tricky.
    But they aren't really all that different to normal people, except for a lot more geekish.

    totally agree! i wanted to cry. nasty pasty OCR making a revolting paper *had to but heat and chocolate to cheer herself up*... so want to get drunk tonight and i answered my questions so completely and utterly out of order. and i honestly am not confident i answered any question correctly (or even the right method...)
