ohhh..

FML :(
i have similar thoughts at the moment.

found 13 silly mistakes.

i forgot the put (+c) for the integration questions on question 2.. TWICE!

i also ruined a proof on q10 because i simplified (1+x)/(1+x) to 0 for some reason.

hey, im only lookin at gettin about 90ish but in Q7,a,ii:
(u+1)(4u-1) would make 4u^2+3u-1, wouldnt it? you're meant to get 4u^2+3u+1.
i tried to do it in the test but i couldnt get past that :(
In the solutions, the equation is -4e^(-2t) -3e^(-t) +1 =0
On re-arrangement this should have been 4e^(-2t) + 3e^(-t) -1 =0
Or 4u^2 +3u -1 =0
Therefore (u + 1)(4u -1) = 0
u = -1 or u= 1/4

The solution is correct but there was a typo upon re-arrangement of the initial equation where +1 should have been -1.

#!%^&#!$%^$!@#! I can't believe I left out Q2c completely. Can't believe I didn't see it! Two easy marks out the window. I need to get my eyes checked.

i write a massive c on the top of my calculator so I would remember

thats not cheating is it? well if it is, no one would interpret the shape of the C as cheating

I refuse to read it, on the grounds that it may lead to self harm. =(
