73/100 would be an A, but if you have 73/100 on this paper, it is possible to be brought up to an A* from the CALC paper.(Original post by bumbakrak)

]what would you get for 73/100 
(Original post by waqarasim)
can someone go through the simultaneous equation question with me. im sure i did it right and checked in the mathwatch cd and the method was right but my answer is wrong.
i dont remember the qestion exactly but this is what i did:
times the equations (i think the first on by 4 and the second by 5) and got both equations to have 20x. then subtracted equation 1 from 2. this cancelled the x's and leaft me with 23y=99 i think so y was 99/23.
then did the same to get x. ( i think times by 2 and other by 3) to get 6y and same method.
can someone please explain where i went wrong and if i got any marks, would help if you could post the question?
thanks
The method was right so you would have got 2 or 3 marks

how did people get 170 for the median when it only went up to 90g? 
Do you have a copy of the paper you could upload in PDF format, with the answer annotated on?

Mr M again would appreciate it if you could answer this.
for 26b. i stretched the graph two places higher but not down would i get any marks?
for 24 i got 281 over 999 would i get any marks?
for 4 i never put mph in the key will i drop a mark?
for question 5 you say medicine, what was that question again?
Finally for question 25 i put something like r= sqr root of 27x over 3 pi, does this sound like i would of wrote any working out down that would grab a mark (i know its a ridiculous question for me to ask).
Thanks
Not sure what you mean by "stretched 2 places higher"  might be worth 1
24) maybe 1 mark for method
4) yes drop 1 mark
5) It was substituting into a formula to see how much medicine you should give to a child
25) yes that sounds like you *might* have got 1 mark

Did everyone write about metaphors? I managed to get similies and oxymorons in but not metaphors. Damn you Duffy fml.

Does anyone have an idea about the grade boundaries?
Did anyone else find the paper hard or was I the only one?

What would this be 

(Original post by Mr M)
No. All the y values would be twice as big.
I guess i was thinking y=f(2x) ? 
Do you think 120 would be enough for an A?
