    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.
    Right, I can't help but admire that to some extend but also, **** sake, at least pretend you found it hard for the peace of mind of the rest of us

    Except when you do the inverse of cos you want the number inside to be as small as possible to get the biggest angle.

    someone plz tell me the grade boundaries will be like 50 for an A
    That would be a ****ing dream. I think for A it would drop to low 60s or mid/high 50s? They were off their rocker with this paper, it threw me off completely, nothing like previous papers at all. Hating on OCR right now.

    When our results arrive, for the FSMQ, will we get just the grade or also the marks?

    I'm asking because on most papers you will get the grade and UMS marks but I can't find UMS grade boundaries or UMS to raw mark converter for the FSMQ anywhere...

    Anyone know?

    You just get a grade. You can ask for your raw mark from your teacher. There is no concept of UMS conversion for this paper.

    Was it not 97 something degrees as you had to make b and c smaller by 0.5 cm and a larger by 0.5cm. To get largest angle
    I'm pretty sure it was 97. something. I made b and c smaller tby 0.5 and a larger by 0.5. It can't have been 90, because the sides were 12, 16 and 20, which is a pythagorean triple, which means the angle 90 degrees would occur during mid way between the max and min.

    I got y = 3x-41 for the other tangent to the circle and y = 6x-23 for the tangent to the curve question...
