It felt... different to previous years. Like the layout of the paper felt different to all the past papers I did which was a bit odd and off-putting actually. The questions seemed to be phrased slightly differently too and not all the content I was expecting was included - so maybe that'll be in Paper 2 instead.

No to any IALs, weirdly I've got all the A Levels I need to go back to uni from 2012, but I tanked my GCSE Chemistry in 2010 so I've got a conditional offer which is to get a 5 in GCSE Chemistry haha - I'm confident I'll get at least that I hope.

Not harder as such, just... different. It was challenging and I had to use the entire time which was a first, but it just had a lot of lengthy answers.

oooh what circle question??? the arc length one or was there another one i accidentally missed lol. The vectors question was impossible!! Did you have the point of intersection thing (wondering if u did paper 1 or paper 1r). I just found MA and ON and hoped i'd get some working marks.

Well did the 1H not R. The vectors question was a little pain in the neck but yet I got OP as 4a + b. I dont really remember if it was plus or minus b but had 4a in the answer.

The circle question was basically pretty easy. You had to multiply the circumference by 55/360 (the ratio of the angle given) and solve the question using this method.

I think i got the arc one it wasnt too dificult you just had to remmeber the equations for area and arc and takeaway, the vectors waas really hard i did about one line of worrking out and gave up then the last question about the curve equation i left out it was legit imposiible

The vectors question was hard yet, the last curve question was easy. It needed simultaneous equations to be formed from the given data. By the way, do you think grade boundaries will be lower due to covid this time or not?

I get confused with the last end of the paper haha but manage to pull through a couple marks here and there like alot of us! anyways I think unfortunately the'll be higher than last year because last year you only needed 94ish/200 out of 200 to get a 7 so they wanna push that up now because they r [email protected] like that

I had my maths paper today, but I don't know if my school took questions from random papers, or if they used the Jan 2022 ones. In any case, the answer for the vectors question that came up in my paper (the trapezium one finding OP I think) was 5/4 a 15 / 8 b if I'm not mistaken. That question was probably hard enough to belong in the FSMQ paper however.
