    What did you guys get for the other line that was also tangent, I got y=3x+5, i did it by forming the diameter, was that what everyone else did
    i got that too. for the circle question did u get (x-8) ^2 + (y-3)^2 = 40?

    i forgot the x and y values but did u get 40??

    don't even get me started on that! Wtf, why, just why ocr, out of all the symbols you could have given, why give the one that no one has ever used and takes 10 years to draw - yes, draw, you don't write that kind of bs out. You could have given us x again, what's wrong with x? You could have given us a, b, c, d, e, fghijklmnopqrstuvxyz but no, lets be fancy and give them a flipping delta
    timewasting + bs = ocr additional maths
    lol the # is waiting to be used! #aqa4lyf

    This petition signing seems to be the norm this exam series. It will not happen, there is no way the exam could be sent to all schools in time, if you found it difficult then I guess that's life.

    Well, maths is my favourite subject, so not really, but I'm not trying to be arrogant, i've just been doing a **** ton of olympiad maths this past year, so fsmq would be rather trivial.

    This paper 😢 I averaged 87% for every single past paper since 2003, and when it counts, they decide to make it so hard. I'd be over the moon now with a A, when before i was certain about it.

    That was literally the worst paper ever - literally I spent so much time revising for this when I could have been revising for the other TWELEVE exams I have left!!!
    But Literally when the examiner told us we only had 10 minutes left, we all looked at her like mate we gave up in the first 20 minutes

    I felt like I could get an A; even after seeing last year's exam, I still got an A on that one that was supposed to be harder than the rest.
    But this? An A would be miraculous.

    They looked like 8s 6s and almost every thing else. Please OCR. Just putting delta instead of X won't confuse us but it may make us lose marks as it looks like an integer not an unknown. 😐
