    Exam was rock solid! I reckon I did ok though, only one I didnt do is vector question last part, the rest of it I did not sure if its all right though. Probably the hardest P3 exam Ive ever done.
    yea hard!
    the vector question was actually not that bad except for the last part
    i got a 12/16 for that question for sure!

    question 1 - no chance

    all the other were ok but it was wierd

    the tant + t bit. I couldnt get that. My value of a was piroot3/2 which wasn't the pi/3 ... so i guess i got that wrong. But my answer to the integral was syumthing like 6ln2 -3 or sumthing like that?

    I got alpha as -3. I got the 8 mark substiution proof right (dunno how!) and I got the proof in the other one aswell (cant remember wot it was).

    For the rates of change i got 4t^2 - 3 or sumthing like that and I got the 60degrees one in the vectors.

    for the fractions one i got A=1 and B=2 or the other way round 9cant remember) and I got -11 as the coeff of x^2 but i cant remember the rest

    Overall though, for a hard paper I think I did ok? Can anyone reassure me and say that they got the same as me in those questions? lol

    SCREWED SCREWED SCREWED. That P3 was impossibly difficult (for me anyway). I couldn't even do question 1 And then I couldn't do 8 part d, where those 2 new vector things.

    The last part was easy.
    all you had to do is divide 14route2 by route98, and that was your answer for the s and t value.
    Then you just had to put them into the first equations, and get the co-ords of B and C
