Yep definitely harder than I thought. I still think I've done pretty well, but it wasn't easy at all. I got £66.something for x on the last question and the probability of rolling 16 or more as 5/108 btw

Did people get greater than or equal to 0 and less than 52 (or 56 I can't remember) for the range of x on the dynamic programming question?

Not many people do this exam, my teacher said only 18 people did it last year. As far as I know we could be the only people that have actually done it

It was a tough paper though, I know I screwed up on the decision tree at the end, but I didn't really time to correct it. I also had no idea about the optimal strategy for B on question 4.
