I'll take that. What will that align to considering the difficulty level of this years paper? (Idk if it was considered easy or hard... I didn't prepare much. Smashed everything up until Q16..... 4/15 -.-)

Will u lose a mark in question 11.f) if u went 1/3[tan^-1(e) - tan^-1(1)] = 0.144 in radian form, instead of 1/3[tan^-1(e) -pi/4] ?

I think overall it was a fairly tough 3U exam especially compared to last years, but not that unbelievably so when you compare it to some of the exams from the early 2000s. Up to question 14 was fairly easy, and the induction was fine too. i'm estimating about a 56-57/70. how do you guys think that would align? from what i've seen i'd guess about a 46/50? or am i being too hopeful? :p
If it aligns like I think it will (and carrot agreed with me), then that would be a 47 more than likely.

Did the same. Would we loose a mark for doing decimal value instead of exact? The question didn't specify exact value from what I remember.

Would 53/70 align to 91 or 92? Since this only counts as 1unit for me, then would it be 46/50?
