    last vectors question (5mrks) and volume question (4mrks) were tricky, but everything else was manageable

    For the last part of the vectors question like an idiot instead of adding the directional vector or a factor of it to vector P, I added the magnitude of the direction to vector P meaning that I got 3/5 for that (or 4 hopefully). The rest of the paper was very easy and I hope 73/75 is full UMS.

    One of the easier papers of recent, but lots of areas to make silly mistakes (I made a couple myself on what would be otherwise be fairly simple questions). Last part of the vector question probably caused problems although it did appear in Jan 14 IAL (I got it wrong myself with the wrong scale factor, most likely a silly mistake). Same difficulty as June 12 imo. Will definitely be 75 for 100 UMS, possibly 68-70 for A* and 63-65 for an A

    I made the same mistake I did 5/2 not 2/5 for the scale factor ! How many marks out of 5 do you think that'll get?
