    Anyone know how M2 is marked?

    I found the paper really easy but then came out realising i made the worse mistake...

    I put down s=ut +1/2at^2 for the last question then accidently using s=u +1/2at^2 to work out time! The method I used subsequently is correct but obviously will come out wrong due to the initial answer?

    Am I likely to lose say 10 out of the 12 marks for the rest of the question? This is especially annoying with the boundaries likely to be high...

    When you put down s=ut +1/2at^2 initially, you showed that you knew the formula, which is the main thing.
    When you used s=u +1/2at^2 afterwards, then I would say that that just counts as an arithmetical error - 1 or 2 marks at the most, but nothing like 10 out of 12.
    I don't think you'll lose that much.

    you'll loose as many accuracy marks as there are in the question... i didnt really look at the official scemes from m2 much so i cant be sure... but normally its 1/3-1/2 the marks on accuracy (rest on methood and final answer..)

    thats the kinda of mistake i make aswell... or i take sinA = 3/5 instead of 4/5 >.< stoopid triangles
