1. Hi guys !)
How did you find today's paper ?
For me it was as difficult as previous papers, although I did not solve question on radius
2. Other than time management the paper was quite straightforward , just missed the last two parts of question 8.
3. Why are the papers getting harder and harder....
What do you guys think grade boundary will be like?
Over 60?
4. I solved the inductive proof for the summation formula by equating the answer with the i got when i tried simplifying for summation of k+1. I couldn't factorise out anything. I think the june 15 mark scheme allowed this. I dont know if they'll allow it this year though
5. Couldnt solve radius. Couldnt show the disibility for n=k+1. Other than that. got the rest.
