Edexcel FP1 Thread - 20th May, 2016 watch

1. (Original post by Anon-)
**** me that was unexpected. so many questions i got stuck on, p and q for complex roots, descriptions of geometric transformations, proof of summation, coordinates of parabola

i've been getting like 98% on past papers and on this **** i must have gotten something like 70%
Ive been getting 100% there was one question that basically made me forget everything ive ever learnt in FP1. I normally complete proof in 5 min but my brain was so damaged by the previous question that it took my 15 minutes
2. Without a doubt resitting it
3. Trust messed that one up bad lost at least 15-20 marks
4. On the second proof I got to 5*(1/3)^k+2 + 4/3
Not k+1 how did anyone else get to the answer for the second proof
5. Both co-ordinate system questions and the first proof by induction completely destroyed my soul
6. I thought apart from the last question the paper was straight forward. (Don't roast me plz)

OMG
The last question 9b I cannot prove!! I equate them together but there was 5p cube sth...
Probably gain one mark for the method.
Also, I forgot to equate the y coordinate to zero!! My mind was all about the x coordinate greater than zero lol.
Let's hope the grade boundary of this will be around 66/67 for 90...
Lol i couldnt prove x so i equated whatever i had to their x and used their x and subbed it in the y=-x to prove the y coordinate. The last part to find the midpoint i was getting there doing 1/2* x coordinate of p + x coordinate
Same with y but i couldnt finish it as time finished. I really wish arsey releases the papers quick. I saw the paper on the table i was so tempted to tak a few pictures. Lol
8. Someone please make a hitler reacts to fp1 vid
9. **** my life and everything in it that was brutal. I feel such a ****ing fool for not understanding the z^2 + 2z is real bit. Didn't even get to finish my proof for the summation.. Edexcel is reaming me in the ass man wow

10. How did you do 7(d)? Find the value of k for which T maps points on y=kx onto itself?
11. Probably got like 62/75. So stupid of me.

12. I was hoping to get very very high mark on this because my decision maths and stats aren't good. Now, I truly feel that PRESSURE!!

He wont react, same thing that happened to us will happen to him blood would just stop flowing to his brain and he'll die

16. Very reasonable paper, I would expect standard boundaries

Practice D1 its easy to get 100% as its just learning the method theres no hard questions that you wont understand.
18. Wait i just realized i'm talking about the IAL one, so the GCE was hard?
