    I ****ed up, couldn't find a sign change any marks for just stating the interval to be used at all?

    judging by poll results (didn't sit paper) that could well be over 90
    I really hope your right ... But I just can't see it. I think people are just a bit fired up as the exam has just happened. I thought it was hard while doing it, but looking back on it now I think it was just a standard paper.

    62 - A

    How did that iteration question work? I kept getting two positive values
    If you made g(x) = Modulus(4e^2x - 25) and g(x) = 2x+43 equal each other, arrange the equation to equal zero then subbed in the two values you got one positive and one negative. But it's annoying because that's not what we're used to and obscure to find out how to do. Really 'last resort' type of paper, so dead.

    All these people saying mid 60's for an A are just trolling, I would have thought that they would be roughly 59/60 for an A as it was as hard as last years paper in my opinion and if lots of people ****ed it up then Edexcel will have to alter the grade boundaries to ensure the same percentage of people getting grades as previous years.

    For 7b if I left my answer as sin(-pi/3) -1 which is the same answer as your value for x would I still get full marks?
    I believe I've put that as the answer as well. Do quote me if someone has answered your query as I don't have the time to look through every page. Thanks in advance.

    How did people prove the trig question? Number 8
    2cot(2x) + tan(x) = 2cos(2x)/sin(2x) + sin(x)/cos(x), use the double angle formula, put into 1 fraction, the rest drops out nicely
