Was pretty sure I got about 56-59/70 raw, then realised after looking at the question paper on here that I completely skipped over 11E. Just went straight from d to f. fml

Guys, for the last question with that binomial proof, would I lose a mark for leaving my answer with [nC0 instead of nCn], [(n+1)C1 instead of (n+1)Cn], [(n+2)C2 instead of (n+2)Cn] ... etc? I forgot to justify with mirror property. RIP

That's fine.

I got something weird like 2.something but I checked it and it seemed alright

According to the solutions, I dropped 2 marks in total across the exam (assuming CFE holds). Depending on how harsh they mark the very last question, I should be sitting at 97% rounded bruh.

Algebraic errors are like herpes; you will always be plagued by them, no matter how far advanced you go in mathematics.

:O what happened here

lol im 89/90 from 94

that moment when you don't convert into radians..ha ha ha

what do you reckon a raw 50 would scale too?

bby we will carry our school.
Ruse is no match for us.

I did the exact same thing! Had to rewrite f after crossing it out and doing e.

Let us rek you and I,
When the Band 6 is spread out against the sky
Like a student etherised upon a syllabus;
Let us go, through these half-deserted sheets
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights of binomial theorems
And probability with perms and combs:
Markers which see through our tedious argument
Of unsatisfactory content
To lead you to an overwhelming question...
Oh, do not ask, "What's the Band 6 cutoff"
Let us go and work our butt off.
