FP2. How did you find it today?
Sorry I did not sit that exam!
6. (Original post by economicss)
Can anyone remember what they got for the recurrence relation one please, was the power k+1 in the end? Thanks
Yeah it comes out as k+1 ... if you got k+2 then you multiplied twice by 1/3 (first the 5, then the 1/3^k )

So K+1 is right and k+2 is wrong? Haha sorry struggling to remember the question! Thanks

I thought apart from the last question the paper was straight forward. (Don't roast me plz)
nerd, get roasted

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.
I'm A2 student as well, the paper is harder than last year but most of question was fine. But the self inverse which made me have no idea what to do which I just put that reflection at y=-x

Did you manage to do it? I couldn't :/
No, I think I got half way but i ended up with 1+p^2 on the bottom and I couldn't figure out where to go next But I did manage to do the other one luckily Did you get the second one?

Yeah me too I got close to the end but just couldn't do it Yeah I got the second one! It made me feel a lot better

Easy, however I did get the signs mixed up when using a common denominator at first; the recurrence relation one was very simple.
yeah I nearly made sign mistake with the -1

Lol youre the only one who thinks its reasonable i think ot was twice as hard as last years.
ikr, i did all the past papers an rarely struggled got at least a B on all of them. whereas that was awful im not even sure i'll pass.
Q's 1-4 = full marks.
5 = i dont even know what happened.
6 = not good.
7= nearly got it but forgot to factorise "i" out.
8= may have got some marks.
9= dont even remeber what question that was.

oh well just need 100% on M1 D1 an D2 now and it will be fine...
17. This paper was so easy, whats the fuss about?
