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

That should be correct I think!! Seemed to be what people got

7. Good Luck Everyone , I hope I get the A*
8. 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.
9. Roughly how much out of 200 is a c grade? Any estimate will do not the brightest mathematician ever I'm afraid :/
10. around 75
11. Roughly how much out of 200 is an A*. Judging by the fact that this paper was very easy though.
12. Predictions for an A*?

60/200 (on a higher paper)

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
15. 165 for an A*
16. Screwed the last one badly. Found the rest of the exam pretty easy though. Hopefully no silly mistakes.

I got that too!
18. right then, feeling confident ATM. Good luck everyone
19. 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
20. Does anyone have a link to the actual paper with answers instead of just answers. Thanks
