Definitely easier than last year's paper. Annoying that we had to factorise difficult quadratics 2 times though. Messed up on part c of circles question and the translation question - although I nearly wrote down what I think was the right answer but time ran out.. I think this paper was the 2nd hardest AQA C1 paper to date. It was funny how I predicted they'd put a completing the square question with a 2x^2 coefficient and how they'd use a trapezium for the optimisation question.

What do you mean correctly? I managed to factorise them pretty easily anyway; the numbers came into my head quickly as I thought of the factors of those numbers.

Well I didn't even realise the last factorising question was even in the picture! Very simple factorisation.
Some of the other questions had many fractions which could be considered hard but they simplified down nicely.
C1 is very generous with marks though so as long as you've done the method correctly I'm sure you've done ok!

I think with the simultaneous equations question you had to substitute x=-1/3 and with the surds question there were rational numbers so there's that.

I think AQA gave us scary fractions because everyone who sat this C1 exam was resitting and had done A2 maths. But what they failed to realise is that, A2 maths is Predominantly calculator.

Some of my friends thought they didn’t do as good...sad

Really didn't like that paper ;(

For some reason in the simultaneous equations part (Q2) I got something like ?/46 I think; anyone else get anything similar? Also, what did people get on Q1?

It was 69/46 which could be cancelled down to 3/2 I think but I don't have the best memory so idk tbh LOL.

I got that for the coordinates of S! Negative something over 46 I think it was 69 or something! Couldn’t simplify it though!
