    Hope everyone gets what they expected, and the last question simultaneous equation + quadratic equation in one was a-level maths!

    It really wasn't. Substitution is part of the gcse syllabus. I think answers were when x=2.87, y=-0.87, and when x=-0.87, y=2.87

    I probably made so many stupid mistakes, even though after non-calculator I thought "alright Dylan, no more stupid mistakes"

    edit: Yeah, I made many mistakes.

    I think for this year 130 will be A and 100 will be a B so over 65 should be a C to be honest taking into consideration the difficulty of some questions

    Screwed the last one badly. Found the rest of the exam pretty easy though. Hopefully no silly mistakes.

    could anyone please answer this?
    if i put 2.87 and -0.87 and vice versa (the correct answer) but with no working out (i used trial and error), is that full marks regardless?

    cheers, and top work Mr M
