    STEP II, 2007:

    Time: 2:59
    Mark: 112/120

    Breakdown:

    Q1: Full.
    Q2: Full.
    Q3: Arithmetic slip at the end: 17-ish.
    Q4: Arithmetic slip at the end: 16-ish.
    Q5: Don't understand (iii): 10-ish.
    Q6: Full.
    Q7: Full.
    Q14: Messed up the end a little. 15-ish.

    Thoughts: Decent. III 2007 next. Need to do some physics as well.
    Q5 they are looking for a similar aproach using a substitution note the
    1-t^2.

    Yeah, I got that, and that \frac{\sqrt{3}}{2} = \sin 60^{\circ} = \cos 30^{\circ} and \frac{1}{2} = \sin 30^{\circ} = \cos 60^{\circ} but I wrote down \sin \left(\cos x + \frac{n\pi}{6}\right) instead of \sin\left( \sin^{-1} t + \frac{n\pi}{6}\right) so... I'm lost.

    I'll show you how to do it dear

    Lol look over all your working again. At ur initial steps, ur gna be pissed. I would only drop a few not 10 u just made a scripted error/written error.

    Objectives for today:

    - Clean my room
    - Go buy food
    - Practice polar integration till I can do questions in under 8 minutes consistently.
    - Finish off a few questions from III 2006 and II 2007
    - Watch some random astrophysics videos and hope it's relevant to the spec

    I've only got a few hours to do that because I'm going out for dinner... so I'll probably get none of it done actually oh well

    Let me know if this video is any good

    Where are you practising polar coordinates from?

    I thought we discussed that watching random videos doesn't count as learning physics? Nice list btw I'm proud

    I uhm, don't actually know yet. Okay, now I know. Looked it up, I'm using these.

    It's depressing because you'll get a better grade in Physics than I will in Spanish despite me practising for a year and you learning the stuff the night before

    He's already done that with me in AS Physics despite never being in a lab.
