    Would you lose the A1 mark if you do:

    ... = (correct answer) = (wrong answer after manipulation)
    At the start of every mark scheme:

    "Ignore wrong working or incorrect statements following a correct answer."

    Hopefully 75 for me, but I can see why people were annoyed.

    I don't think the self-inverse is in the spec, and if it is it hadn't come up for years... it was just about reasonable to infer what it meant from the context, but I know a lot of good students who didn't.

    Question 8a was more algebraically involved than is typical; ditto for the last two parts of question 9. Other than the last few questions I think the paper was generally reasonable though, and even on the harder questions there were gift marks to be had.

    On the whole a step up from last year, but I fear not as big a step up as general consensus would suggest... similarly grade boundaries will probably go down a bit, but maybe not that much. An A in the high fifties is possible, but I wouldn't like to cast much judgment yet.

    For self-inverse I just multiplied it by itself to get the identity matrix, is this a valid answer?

    Even still, I reckon you'd get the mark for saying sqrt(5). It's not a ****ing English paper analysing a comma.

    exact same thing happened to me i also managed to get the first induction but i only managed to do half of the 2nd induction as i wasn't thinking straight
    yep. just about got both inductions, there was one step missing in my proof for the first one which would explain why i would minus the 2k + 3, hopefully they either don't notice or they assume i just realised and wrote it down

    What does everyone think the grade boundaries will be? high or low?

    65 for an A? That's 86% - absolutely no chance.

    M3 was definitely easier, compared to the past papers. Although I still managed to mess up M3 (the 9 mark question) and do fairly well in FP1.
    I was completely shocked on Wednesday cause I am not a mechanics expert (I tend to get like 80-85% in M3) but on Wednesday every single thing went so smooth. Today tho... I think I'll get the lowest FP1 grade in my life. 😂 I think I lost like 8 marks and all in such a stupid way. What a nightmare. Btw maybe u remember how much were the last two subsequent ions in question 9 worth?

    That question 7 ****ed me over.
    I found every single question easily doable except for question 7 and 9.
    I couldn't find A, so that's a lot of marks lost already for question 7.
    I couldn't show that the equation of the normal in question 9a was the equation that they gave us.
    Plus I'm sure I made loads of silly mistakes everywhere.

    A B (if I'm lucky), but probably gonna get a C or something.

    Surprisingly, I found the proofs to be quite easy, yet everyone else is finding it hard. Kinda implies that I probably did it wrong too.
