These anwers are really helpful. Thanks.
According to them I should have about 57/70 and 52/60 so hopefully that will be an A. biggrin.gif . I also did the ksin(x-a) question in degrees, it is so annoying now when I look at it!

when you guys mark yourselves based on the answers eg /60 and /70 do you just mark yourselves for the answers you have got correct or do you also mark the ones you didnt get correct but take into account the working?
Thanks

Yeah I was the same. And I really needed this A. I think if i didnt do so well it will be an appeal for me cause I have 2 prelims, both of which are A's.
Grrrrrr!!

For question 2b) on paper 1, is there a difference way of finding the coords of Q? Because i'm sure I used another method and still got the same answer, just can't remember what I did! tongue.gif

Ya... I used the midpoint formula, where C is the midpoint of QP.

Hmm I don't think I did that either! tongue.gif Ah well, could anyone pm me a copy of the paper?

Oooh nevermind. Just realised I did use the same method as Mr H smile.gif

Yeah, that's what I did. I believe there is an example of this in the HSN notes, which is why it was the first thing that came to my head at the time.

I think I just found the equation of the diameter, and found where it cut the x-axis which was -5. Still acceptable?

Yeah, that's probably the most commonly used method for finding Q. I've only ever seen an example of the inverse of midpoint formula in the HSN Notes, so the chance is most candidates will never have thought to use it. I like it when there are numerous different ways of solving questions, it makes things more interesting...

I was feeling really ill on the day of the exam, and I think I did pretty well on Paper 1 (maybe 42/50), but I seriously screwed up Paper 2. I hardly studied the previous night because I was bed-ridden. Anyhoo, if I was to get a C, what's the likelihood of me getting an appeal for a B (what I need to get into Uni)? I have an A and high B in my two prelims... sad.gif


And does anyone know if Strathclyde operates on the points system? ie where BBBB = ABBC etc? I hope so, otherwise I'm screwed... unsure.gif
