    It's not that bad of a paper you know. I can see why you all freaked under exam conditions. But I bet if you were doing it in the comfort of your room you would just think "Oh this is a bit of a challenge."

    No it wasn't a bad paper on whole, I freaked because I knew the method for doing part 8 d but kept substituting in wrong numbers, consquently getting an unsolvable quadratic. Ran out of time in the end.

    Yeah it wasn't the most difficult of all the past papers, although there were some challenging parts. I think though that overall some of the questions were OK

    Funny how exams can magnify feelings of paranoia. During my mechanics mock I left out the last question but walked out without a care in the world. Was that P6 you had it in?

    Yeah. A question which went along the lines of Express tan3x in terms of x using demoivre's, hence solve some cubic. I was lucky in that I'd seen it before, but an idiot in that I just couldn't apply it.

    You're not an idiot, I'm quite certain of that.

    Yer its harder but 100 times I THINK NOT
    Most of you would breeze the first few questions and many of you could do the vector question the 7 th question is very similar to the edexcel in the sense you have to show that so you can't get that wrong. Yes Question 8 is difficult if you've never dont that before.

    For what it is worth, I must strongly disagree with you.
    Having just done both papers neither paper stands out as being and easier (or of course any more difficult than the other!)

    Which one did I complete in the shortest time?
    As it happens it was the OCR paper by 4 Minutes
