# P1: How Was It For You? watch

1. you can apply to have your marked paper sent to you at a price. btw how much does it cost to request your paper back?
2. (Original post by chats)
wow 80% and you only got a low B. how do you know you got 60/75?
i got the original sent back to me, cuz i didn't think id done that badly....

lol you think that was bad! i would love that.
4. SO SO SO EASY>>>>>>>>>>>this is great
5. Thought I did OK, Only things I got Wrong were parts a & d of geometric series question. Forgot to revise how to prove the formula and know I got d wrong cos I put a value of r which was > 1. (I put 11/10 which means something went wrong with it but was close ot 10/11 which was correct)

1
b: y = 1.5x + 0.5

2
a: 17 - 12 root 2
b: 0.5 + 0.25 root 2

3
a: Draw Graphs

b: Meets Axis at (-2,0), (2,0) & (0,-4)

C: (xx or XX = X squared)

Use quadratic equation to find points of crossing (y= (xx) -4) and (y=-3x)

So: xx + 3x -4 = 0
Meet at: (1,-3) and (-4,12)

4

a: X< 65 (NOT X>65 or answer to c) does not make sense)

b: xx + 20x - 4800 > 0

c: 60 < X < 65

Second part of quadratic to do with -80 can be ignored as X>0 from first
line of question

5

a Tan x = 8/3

b Tan x = 8/3
x = 69.4 and x = 249.4

c Change Sin sqaured into 1 - cos squared

Part where cos x = -3 ignored as no answers

cos x = 1/3
x = 70.5 and x = 289.5

6

do dy/dx etc

prove by taking second derivative is > 0 (I think cos it was a minimum) value, otherwise do opposite

7

Screwed up by not revising how to prove formulae but otherwise:

b: 87.8 to 3sf

c: 100

d: answer is 10/11 but I got that wrong

8

coordinates of Q are (3,12)

y coordinate of P is also 12

Line PQ is parallel to x axis as y coordinates are the same (gradient of PQ = 0)

Area = 4/3

Hopefully only dropped 7 marks for those two geometric questions

6. does anyone hav a copy of the p1 paper yesterday that they can scan in?
7. AQA pure 1 was so easy, i think i got 100%.

Btw the grade boundry for an A is never more than 80%

for edexcel it is. see http://www.edexcel.org.uk/VirtualCon...port_Jun03.pdf

last yr for p1, you needed 66/75 to get an A, which is more than 80%
9. well i am pretty sure i got 100%, my teacher even went over the answers after and as i remember i think i got them all right. So i guess 100% means A.
10. How modest.

BTW the grade boundary is different each year for raw percentages.

so do you think this years was easier than last years?
i think last years was easier so this year 80 ums will be 64 marks
12. has anyone got a good prediction of the marks needed for an A?

Does anyone have a scan of the paper?
13. (Original post by chats)
so do you think this years was easier than last years?
i think last years was easier so this year 80 ums will be 64 marks

Was it not 66 marks last year?

I can't remember last year's. But I think on average this year's was, on average, the same as past papers.

yeh it was 66 last year but this year i think 64.
p3 was 51 last year! it must be damnnnn hard
16. (Original post by chats)

it wasn't too bad looking at it, but then again, i wasn't in the exam hall doing it under timed conditions - that can be much more daunting.
this year's was quite tough, but still doable. but judging from the reaction on here, i think the grade boundaries for this year's p3 will be close to 51
17. The Grade boundries for P1 for June 2003 Edexcel were:

A = 80UMS = 66

B = 70UMS = 57

C = 60UMS = 48

D = 50UMS = 40

E = 40UMS = 32

I dont think they will be too different this year. I dont think the boundry for an A will be any higher than 67 / 68

its out of 75 yea
19. how much UMS approximately needed for an A altogether is it 80% of 300 i.e 240
is it that also subject to change in accordance with the difficulty fo the papers?
