# Edexcel FP1 Thread - 20th May, 2016 watch

1. I found it easy, but then again it's my resit...I finished in 65 minutes and sat there checking the questions again and again for the remainder of the exam with nothing to improve on lol, Probably 70-75/75

What did everyone get for the very last question, the x coordinate? I got (5/2)root2
2. That was really hard I was short of time and I was stressing super amounts towards the end which made me lose contration!!!!

12.468
N/6(38n^2 +15n +1)
X^2 -4x +8
P=-3 q=-9
M = (15root2/4,0)
Same values as you for all of those 👍

These are all correct.
The exam was tougher than usual. The first induction made me think a little. On the bright side this means lower boundaries.

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.
I got (5/2)root2, half of yours...

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.
Yes haha
Omg for the series I had a brainwave in the last 5 minutes

And I had no idea for the argand diagram, I blagged that one.

Some people are saying it's 15 root 2 all divided by 4.

I don't know what's correct but I am probably wrong. Oh well, that's 3 marks, and the rest of it was pretty straightforward.

I really messed up. Dropped a minimum of 20 marks. Missed the whole last page out plus a 5 marker. Best case 55, worst case god knows. And i was getting full marks in all the past papers gonna have to resit
9. The easiest paper I have ever done , 75/75 guaranteed
10. The bloody question 7 was supposed to be -4 and i put bloody +4, and in the last minute when i realised and changed it to -4, i didnt have any time left to do the calculation again :'( agrr 5 marrks down

I thought it was relatively easy you clearly didn't revise definitely 75/75 for me
13. was the area of triangle 49root2/2

Why do you delight in telling people that? I've got 75/75 in past papers before and done a past paper every week since January and I found it slightly more challenging.
Stop trying to antagonise.
15. i got that

16. Loved that paper, so glad I get to take it again next year!!
17. a=-1
QR = 2OP
18. what did you guys write for "why is T self-inverse" for the matrix question?
