STEP Support Programme

A question about questions

In STEP II yesterday, I was supposed to evaluate an integral in part (i) of a question but didn't until I needed to in part (ii).

Would I lose marks? I did what was asked, just later in the question.

I'm guessing this is Q1 and you evaluated $I_0$ in the next part? That's fine -- you won't lose anything.
