    Depends on your school. It will definitely start between 1pm and 2pm, and it lasts for 2 hours.
    My school starts at 1, although many will start at 1:30, or even 2.

    Yeah, I'm not looking for the specific minute. My only concern is that I get into school for 12:30pm only to find out its a morning exam. I checked my schools exam timetable and the exams boards but I'm still paranoid.

    Thanks for your answers though. Good luck tomorrow guys

    How did the exam go for you guys?? I found the second last question time consuming and spent too much time on it. Overall, it went well and hopefully I get good marks.

    I found the question on inequalities time consuming, must have spent 15 minutes on it. You reckon the boundary for A will be in the 60s or 70s?

    Yeah. It was a bit long. I hope the grade boundary is between 60 to 70

    Quick question:
    For the question with the time and you had to find the distance (the second part of the question), should I have integrated as the distance is the area under the curve?
    I integrated the velocity equation to make it a distance equation, then substituted t with 8 to get 53m I think. I suppose that's wrong?

    My school has the largest cohort of Yr11 FSMQ takers in the country (170 students) and we exit poll the students each year on likely percentage score.

    For the past fifteen years we have predicted the A boundary to within two percentage points. Our exit poll prediction this year is 74%.

    Most good schools took the 2016 paper as a sign of things to come and put some serious time in with students, and so the relatively easy 2017 paper will see a high number of 80%+ scores.

    My name might say so, but I ain't a god; I crammed my answers onto the details label they gave us.

    I subbed in 8 and got 56m instead of 53m.

    Didn't you already had what s equalled as you had to differentiate that to find v? Or am I remembering the wrong question?

    That's genius man.

    Well good luck to all. I thought it was quite deadly, so did a few of my companions.
