# Aqa Mbp5.... watch

1. anyone doing this tomorrow afternoon?

Has anyone got any general advice, because I'm nowhere, and don't have time to go over everything...

Thanks.
2. i'm doing it but no advice 4 revision im afraid, im doing AWFUL myself as it is
3. It seems so much harder than the others. EVen P4 wasn't this much of a struggle...
4. personally i messed up p4 cus my nerves TOTALLY got the better of me, so i think i ended up doing better in P5 today, hopefully it can pull my mark up after P4
5. P5 wasn't so bad today, I thought it was quite a reasonable paper. Although for the question where you had to do a differential equation to get it in the form y^2 = f(x), I realised I forgot to work out the constant, so I just ended up with y^2 = ln(x+2). Most of the rest was fine, couple of dodgy bits though.
6. yeh but after heated debate with my friends, we realised u COULDNT find a constant because they did not give u any values to find the constant from so yeh, i just got y^2=ln(x+2) + c

what did ppl get for the very last question? no-one i've spoken to seems to have got the same as me...which was (pi^2)-4

A couple of my friends got that - I didn't, but I didn't expect it to be right. I think yours is right

what did u guys get for the mid ordinate question..id never actually done that b4..only trapezium or simpsons..dammit.

Likewise, only done the other two It was quite a small number i think, but I don't know if it was right.
10. did u actually know how to do it? ..i didnt....i used some method and got 0.800..?

there was one where u had to work out stationary points too..and then draw the graph..

i got asymptotes for x=-1 and y=x?
and st points at 0,0 and -2,-4 i think

does that sound right?

Hehe, you're picking out all the questions that I couldn't do I definitely got x=-1. To be honest, I didn't revise much for this paper because I only need 1 UMS mark for an A overall. The only other mistake i made (aside from the one's already mentioned) was forgetting to divide the x^3 term in the 2nd binomial expansion one by 6, so I had it as 48x^3, not 8x^3.

I got something wrong. -9.something I think. But the method was correct. I think.

What answers can everyone remember so I can compare?

10cos(theta + 74) (74 ish)

for one of em?

what did ur graph look like? (anything like mine attached?)

that shud say x=-2 not x=3

Nope. Nothing like it...

I was just guessing though - I couldn't work them out, but now I'll never need to again!

What did you get for k in binomial parts?

i didnt do it..missed it out just because when i looked at it i thought 'never seen this before' so just moved on. shudnt have done though because i realised how simple it was afterwardss ..anyway the answer was k=4

Is it me, or do AQA love me with Maths this year? Did anyone see AQA B Pure 1 and AQA B Pure 2 Exam Papers?!

Amazing!

Oh hell. I had two goes and got 1/2 and 2. I should've just divided them and got 4...

I resat P1 this time. What did you think (I'm assuming you found it very easy). I should've done much better this time - I'm at the end of the course now- just done P5. Everyone in my class laughed at me for resitting P1! But I should've come out with less than a B now. If I do, I don't deserve a qualification at all...

Did anyone get 0.2something for the midordinate rule?
and for the vector question what angles did you find?(18.5?)
