    It was soooooo hard!
    I think last years was much easier...
    I did the partial fractions, half of the factor theorem, the derivatives, the integral and some of the differential equations...
    Could've done better though.....I guess I'll retake it next January :/

    It wasn't as bad as I expected, I did all the "show/prove" questions right yayyyyy...

    I should have got between 60-70 out of 75 which by my standards is great.

    I found it hard - the questions seemed to be designed to catch you out too.. did anyone get the question where u= 1+sin x right - I had an extra 7 at the end?

    Did anyone do that parametric equation with P and coordinates (a,something) ?

    I got that right woo woo woo...the 7 cancelled out with the -6 or something...so i got 1 left which was what they wanted

    The only one I must have messed up loads is the rates/oil question. Forgot to look over that again after last week when i revised it

    Yeah by finding out t and then putting it in the x equation?

    that wasn't too bad, although that (1 + sinx)^6[6sinx -1] + C (or whatever)
    question had me stressing for a while, but i got it in the end. hopefully i've only dropped less than 10 or so marks, and so i can get that A in Further maths

    I worked it all out and then added c at the end, so I got 4t^2, which I know is wrong. Quite annoyed about that, if I'd put it in earlier I was on track for the right answer :rolleyes:

    I thought it was really hard too, and everybody i know did. Managed to do most of Q8, which is the qustion i normally find hard. Yeah no 1 was a *****! If fact so was the whole paper, i go to a grammar school, and everyone who took it found it hard! And no retake either as this is the only attempt!
