Yeah, I thought it was decent too and was question 7 the proving one?

Me too! I got the denominator they were asking for but screwed up the top bit so I hope I got method marks 🤞

What do we reckon the grade boundaries will be like? I think the exam was easier than the 2018 paper so can the boundaries be higher than last year’s?

Question 7 was the proving one. I used the quotient rule implicitly and then ended up with an equation in sin and cos = 0 and when it rearranged to equal dy/dx it got exactly the end point

Last year was 58 for an 80 UMS (if you have 18 in the coursework). I reckon it will be exactly the same, maybe one mark slightly lower. I though last years paper was actually easier.

Yeah, that was a nice question imo

I probably found this year easier cos I was more prepared but hopefully the grade boundaries do stay the same, good luck!

I preferred this paper to last year, struggled abit with the last part of question 9, I couldn’t get the top part of the equation but I got the bottom

Same, I’m a bit scared my answer to the part before might’ve been wrong cos I was really struggling to form the numerator

I also couldn't get the top part wtf! lol
I reckon there will be ECF marks and method marks. The final answer will only be one mark lost on each question. If the rest of the paper went well I wouldn't stress about it.

Let’s compile answers, this is what I remmeber getting:

1) 1/9(x^3+2)^0.5 ??? tbh can’t remember this but was integration
2) ln4/9
3) a= 24.5, k= 0.0623
4) (think this was the connected rated one) dy/dt = -2/15

5) can’t remmeber

6) can’t rmemeber

7) can’t rmemebe

8) f’’(x) = 0, so point of inflection

9) integration: 1/k^2 - 2e^-1k^2

and then the prove one

2ln(3/2)
a = 24.5 and k = 0.063
36.1 Years for 90% of max mass
dy/dt = 1/30
value of coordinate p was likee root 2
Area was 1/2
Last questions, you hard to work out the area of the triangle, which was like 1/2K^2e and subtract it from the area which was like 1/k^2(1-1/k^2e) .

answer was ln(4/9), it said to express answer as a single logarithm. i agree with everything else apart from ur -3/8. how can it be a maximum, there was a 12x on the top of the f’’(x)

ln(4/9) gives you a negative area. 2ln(3/2) is a single logarithm, with a positive value for the area. integrated the equation then on my calculator and it gave me the equavilvent value.

2ln3/2 isn’t a single logarithm

Sorry i meant ln(9/4)

I think I got 1/2 for the normal gradient and 2 for the inverse gradient idk if it was right
