Wow, fuck that

That was hard man. I usually get 82-81/84 pretty easy in all the past papers i've done, and finished with more than half an hour left

today i was working literally right up until they said pens down. I reckon I'll be lucky to get 80/84. the first part of Q5 took me forever for some raisin although i got it out.

Part (ii) of Q5pb was just retarded. The whole question was just confusing. Did anyone else get about 8.46 am for it?

Q6 was luckily pretty easy.

The rates of change just fucking threw me in Q7, it took me 10 minutes to remember the formula for the volume of a cylinder. I eventually got it out, although i'm positive I got the last part wrong. I got a cubic root

Don't even know about 7b. I'm pretty confident I got it out. Still, hard

This is a review from someone who consistently gets 80+ in Ex1 and 110+ in Ex2. It was hard

Re: Wow, fuck that

I have to agree that was a fucking hard test and I do ext 2 as well. I think I stressed too much and fucked up and couldn't remember anything.

People who do not do 4U would have found that paper very hard... it took alot of lateral thinking, especially to prove that probability inequality.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA fuck me, 2u kid here, I think I skipped about 12 marks and this is coming from a usual mid-70s/84 rofl. I've never skipped more than 5 marks in any other paper I've done.

Got the probability but fucked half of 7b and rates.

I actually thought it was a decent paper

I do 4U and managed to do all of it except the very last question.

I wrote for 4 pages and still couldn't get it :/

Re: Holy Fuckaroni
