    Well I suppose it'll be up later. And if it does turn out to be the hardest paper ever, then I guess I apologise for my presumptions...
    I'd say 1-6 was standard, question 7 was slightly hard, 8B was alright, 8A was incredibly hard, 9A was fine, 9B was borderline impossible, 9C wasn't too hard but the stress from not doing 9B can get you. Considering fp1 is usually all standard, the few 'impossible' questions in this paper mean its the hardest paper ever. so don't expect something crazy.

    I think i didn't do well because i sorta messed up something in the modulus argument question, and i got a=0 which seems too good to be true. And I spent quite a lot of time doing question 9 and the first part of the proof by induction question.

    I think so because i got 100% in all maths mocks but i still find this difficult

    For the question describing the geometric relationship between OP and QR, how many marks should I get I just wrote "OP is parallel to QR, with QR=2OP"?

    This is exactly how I feel. I couldn't do 9B for **** which lead to losing the marks for 9C completely lol

    +-sqr2/2 (+-1/sqr2)
    9/2*x^1/2 + 25/2*x^-3/2
    12.467 (I double checked this however may still be wrong)
    a=38 b=15 c=1
    2-2i, -8i, p=-4 q=8
    1/p
    anti clockwise rotation 45 degree about (0,0) (this may be wrong)
    p=-3 q=-9, matrix (0 1 (bottom line 1 0))
    a^2 +2a -4 + 4i(a +1), a=-1, sqr5 and 2.03 rad, QR twice the length of OP and QR is parallel to OP
    x=15sqr2/4
    i got the matrix as anticlockwise rotation 135 degrees about (0,0)! And i didnt know wether the put the modulus as root 5 or put that to 3sf?

    Wasn't it 3dp ????

    how many marks do you think you dropped?

    Wait do people actually think this paper was hard?

    I could see the 9b however everything else was standard. Maybe 8i (induction) however that wasn't that bad.

    Anyways how did you guys prove that R is its own inverse?

    I did Found that R^2 = I
    R^{-1}R^2 = R^{-1} I
    R = R^{-1}

    I wonder if I will lose marks for this.

    Also what was the geometry for the lines OP and (QR?). I think I said one was double the length of the other and they were in the same direction.

    I thought it was the argument to 3dp and the modulus to whatever you want... I mean, if it's root5, doesn't it make sense to just leave it at root5. The argument wasn't a value of pi, so it made sense to round.

    I honestly don't know... hopefully 6 but including careless error it's looking more like 10 fml. Can't wait for the model answers

    Yeah but it said in the question that a isn't equal to zero. I messed that one up as well and got a=-6 as i forgot that the imaginary part is equal to zero...

    I have no idea if I done that one right I got like -2/3 or something for the value of a! what did you get?
