# P1: How Was It For You? watch

Well, I'm 80% sure the answer is 5. I differentiated the equation and got 5. double checked it as well.
I got 3....There were 2 values but u could check both with the second derivative...
For min it had to be a positive. The max point was next to the given point (1,something)
2. Its 1 to 3, i checked with my graph drawing program because i remebered the cubic, it was y = x^3 - 7x^2 + 15x + 3 graph of the required area is below, its the unshaded finite region. I got Q(3,12) but the next section i thought x = 4 :/ so i used the wrong values.

Hey there does nebody think 66-67 marks wil get an A ppl?
I would think easily. thats 88% +

Somebody said 95% but thats just crazy
4. last year it was 66/75...has nebody seen the june2003 paper....i fort this 1 ws less demanding than that and yet i f..ed up on it

Oh no!! You're right.

Because then it asked you to prove PQ a parallel line to x-axis. both y-coord are 12 so that means, it has to be parallel.

Gosh, I should bloody stop looking at this thread!! lol
6. 66!! really!! I though in general, you only needed 80%.

thats ums...
8. Yeah, but I dont understard all this UMS rubbish. My teachers just gave me exam papers and said 75 / 80% an A. I thought I was well on target
9. the + or - sqaure root of 3 question.......i done it by substitution, do you think i will get it right??

The exam was a bit TOOOOOO easy, do you not think the boundaries will shot up, u have to try and think of any points that ypu actually may have dropped!! dor the last trignometry question did any1 else get:

cos y = 1/3 cos y = -3
y=..... impossible

??
10. I've just come out of 4 solid hours in that exam hall..

P1 went ok.. except for one mother of a question (AQA).. this was question 7 part b.. where you had to find x for sinx^2+sinx-1=0..

hmm.. I bet the answer is really easy- but looking at it now I still can't work it out
11. i didnt do that exam bored... but substitue sin with X

then you have a quadratic. Solve it using factorisation. and then make the answer equal to sin &
(sin theta.. >!)
12. i got cosy=3 cosy= -1/3
i feel i've messed up on this one...
How does the whole grading thing work... do they add marks for all 3 papers and average
or do you need As in all 3 papers to get an A or what?

yeh i got 1/3 and -3 n found 2 values for y in the limits.
14. yeah the factorisation part is the bit I couldnt do..

I don't think you need to get A's in all the papers.. but I guess it depends if its high A's you got on the others.

If you got 3 high A's at AS you only need to average an ABB at A2
15. yes exam was very easy - i finished it in 35 minutes, then re-did it...the grade boundaries will be very high which is gay because i think i couldve handled a harder harder paper and still get close to 100% but hey oh well good that nothing to do with spheres or anything awkward came up.
16. did no one find the paper hard? i went in there and my mind went blank, the only way ill get an A now is if they lose my paper and i get wot im predicted!
17. okay then use X (-b+or- sq-rute of (b^2-4ac))/2a

I got 5, but I have some very intelligent friends who all got 3. Very stuck up friends as well some of them. they were quick to tell me i was wrong. Someone else i know got 5 though.
its 3

last question last bit is 4/3 cant remember too many answers
19. i didn't find it hard
just stuck for time
and i made stupid mistakes e.g drawing the graph in pencil

I couldn't factorise it! I got sin^2 x + sin x - 1 = 0.
which i made u^2 + u - 1 = 0.
Which I couldn't factorise, as hard as I tried.

All of the other questions I had no problem with though.
