# Edexcel FP1 Thread - 20th May, 2016 watch

1. (Original post by veldt127)
Very reasonable paper, I would expect standard boundaries
LOL
2. For 7d bascially it was worded weirdly but you had to find the inverse and multiply by the coordinates to get p and q. Answers were -3 and -9 I think cant remember.

Practice D1 its easy to get 100% as its just learning the method theres no hard questions that you wont understand.
Thank you so much!!! Will do lots of papers to get the grade I need
Good luck with the rest of your exams!!

What do you mean which part was the real part i got confused and messed up
5. The proof series question was only tricky question.
6. guys DONT WORRY

last year I did FP1 and I came out feeling like I got 60% but I ended up getting 85/100 ums
7. When M3 is easier than FP1... Still think I got 75, but boy was it hard.

Lol youre the only one who thinks its reasonable i think ot was twice as hard as last years.
It really wasn't bad...? Maybe the coordinate systems were a bit unexpected but you can't expect it to be the same stuff every year; that would be too easy.

The proof was also reasonable once you spotted the difference of two squares.
9. I think that exam was a bit tougher than usual, built up from the easy questions at the start to some potentially more difficult and wordy ones at the end. Might have lost 2 marks on wordy stuff.

Another tricky one was the last part of question 9. Did anybody get 5 root 2 as their x coordinate of M? Apart from that, it was a pretty standard paper.
10. minimum 71/75

1st part of the last proof was insane - 2/5
the self inversing - 0/1

only errors i can think of that I made

That paper was so easy u people are just idiots complaining on the time u haven´t used for revising i will get 75/75 because that paper was seriously straight forward start learning and live a happier life
Yes, you might get 75/75, but if you go into your Cambridge interview speaking with such appalling grammar, they'll probably refer you to Keale.

Think I got 15root2 over 4 or something along those lines.

How did you do 7(d)? Find the value of k for which T maps points on y=kx onto itself?
i got k=y/5x
14. Was decent tbh just realised at the last minute that 9b was difference of 2 squares and couldn't finish writing in time
15. Ok so what was the value of x for the last question?

That is why i am not appalling with such a grammar in a cambridge interview but someone had to say it
17. Did anyone else run out of time
18. For the z^2+2z question did we have to say that the imaginary part was equal to zero? Took me forever, overthinking a ****ing 1 marker... :/

Series proof wasn't too good, kinda bsed it (started working backward lol).

The last part of the last question stumped me, and a few other weird ones; like that geometrical one on Q7 with the argand diagram.
19. 12.468
N/6(38n^2 +15n +1)
X^2 -4x +8
P=-3 q=-9
M = (15root2/4,0)

Idk if I was right or you are right... sorry!

i got k=y/5x

5 root 2 is what I got, probably wrong
