I think 17a is like 3/4 marks perhaps, not sure. Question 13 was either 1 or 2 marks i think. Does anybody please know any rough grade boundaries/ do you think they'll be high or low? Most people i spoke too found it incredibly hard, myself included:/

Can you remember any other marks for the questions as well? Or what question 9 and 16 was?
not sure about 9 or 16, sorry.. 17a is worth 1 mark because all you had to do is multiply the brackets and they've already given you the answer. 18 is definitely 4 marks because i remember not being able to do that question
thats what i did for the muffin question aswell, i think it should be about 3 marks?
not sure about 18 cos i didnt even attempt the question :/ according to the november 2011 mark scheme which had a similar question.. it says you'd only get a mark for showing that 4x²-x+7 = 9x²+6x+1
you'd have to get the subtraction correct to gain the second mark, but dont worry about it!
