How did everyone find the exam then?

I didn't sit it myself, but I have been tutoring my girlfriend for the past few weeks after the school told her she shouldn't sit it. I'm confident she will get a solid B, if not an A. (Lol and thats me being realistic! tongue.gif)

I haven't saw a copy of the paper yet myself, so if anyone has one could they please scan it or something for me? I'm eager to have a look at it!

Also, last year a highschool maths dept got some worked solutions to the exam up pretty quickly - just wondering if anyone knew of anywhere with them this year?

Thanks a lot =)

Overall I was really pleased. Paper 1 was great. Multi choice was pretty straight forward. The extended answer had a few tricks but overall delighted with Paper 1. Paper 2 was pretty good aswell except bit of trouble with the last 2 questions. Hoping for some answers up here soon aswell smile.gif

I Think I Got All Of The Multiple Choice Correct As I Had The Same As My Teacher After The Exam.

Maybe Only Lost One Or Two Marks In The Whole Of Paper One.


Couldnt Do 6a) Got Half The Co-ordinate of Q In 6B) and Number Seven Was Hard. I got 98/3 sq. units
What did everyone else get?

I Still Think I achieved Enough Marks To Get An A. laugh.gif Well Heres Hoping

I found paper 1 was okay too, but I thought paper 2 was a lot harder, especially the last two questions - I'm hoping for a B.

I Was Actually Half Way Through Paper 2 And Thought To Myself "Oh, This Is Quite Good Not Really Been An Overly Difficult Logs or Integration Sum Yet"

Then That Beast Of A Last Question Appeared
