Thanks. What do you think the grade boundaries will be?

EDIT: How is it anti-clockwise on page 5?

Ahhhh, phew !

So you think it was a difficult paper? What do you think the grade boundarues will roughly be.

For the painting cone question I put 640 after flicking from 640 and 320 for ages. I eventually put 640 because it wanted it in ml, and I thought that it would be 640 because 1ml = 1cm^3 . And I also think I made a silly mistake on the fraction.

I shaded in the region R but also labelled it R. Will I still get the marks? (Inequalities question)

Thank you again!!!

For question 14(b) you have to shade the region in the triangle not around it. And thank you for this it's so helpful

It's ok to shade the bit that you don't need and label the bit you do need R

So If I shaded the triangle and labelled it R I won't lose marks?

noone can tell until the grade boundaries are released in august. It wouldn't be sensible to guess for this module either as it is the first time it has been sat

Will I get 1 out of the 2 marks for working out the linear scale factor of 17(a) as 2?
14. Re: Edexcel GCSE MODULAR 5MB3H Higher Tier UNIT 3 Answers June 2012
How dufficult do you reckon the paper was? Do you think it will still be 90% = A*, 80% = A etc?

Would I get one mark out of 2 on the painting cone question if I got that K=2, but I assumed that as the question wanted the answer in ml, that you would cube K as 1ml=1cm^3??

Sorry for being annoying

Question 12, the standard form question i converted 2650 into standard form first, hence getting the wrong answer. Is it possible to gain any marks for this?
22. Re: Edexcel GCSE MODULAR 5MB3H Higher Tier UNIT 3 Answers June 2012
I didn't label the area that satisfies the inequalities correctly but drew the lines correctly. I think it was out of 3. How many marks do you think ill get?

2/3? or 1/3 or none...? I hope it wasn't out of 4!

Edit: Looks like im getting around 72/80

Hope the grade boundaries are 70 for an A*, that way i'll get an a* overall
