Paper 1 Help?
by jozx7r Leaving Cert Mathematics — 10/06/16 5

For first principles, I done it out & had it right but I had thought I was wrong, so I put a diagonal line through it & put a mark on the page saying "Answer on rough page" & done it out again with a different ending on the rough page.. Will they still give me marks for it since I got it right? Or since I put the diagonal line through it will they disregard it?

I think you'll get marks for it. The real question is how did you get first principles wrong....?

For that question did you have to square out the equation first or differentiate it first or what? 😳

That's the thing, I didn't get it wrong, I got it right! But I thought I had got it wrong so I tried to redo it again :( I thought I had it wrong because I differentiated the question in my head & had it wrong so it didn't match the actual correct answer that I had written! Yeah it was much much easier if you multiplied it out first, otherwise it would have been more difficult

If there's only one line through the anything they correct it

Really?! That makes me feel much more at ease .. I just put one line through it in case I would get any low partial credit for it but realised coming out that it was acc right! Thank you!
