Hi everybody,

Just posting to find out if everyone else "enjoyed" the maths paper today! I thought it was not
too bad... can anyone remember the answers they put?? This might serve as a confidence boost, at
least for me!

Certainly seemed a fair enough paper. Enough to stretch the high ability students and enough to
allow the weaker students to show they have some of the core skills.

Anyone got any opinions on the OCR P3 paper from earlier in the week?

To me it seemed skewed towards some parts of the syllabus - for example no parametric
differentiation, no integration by substitution, no partial fractions etc.

Our students found the paper very tough - any other views?

I didn't take the paper this year (I did all 6 maths modules last year) but one friend told me that
all of those people who did P2 last year and re-took it again this year said it was much easier...
