    Thank you so much sir. Feeling quite confident now that I've looked at the answers. Hopefully I'll get the A* this time. I was 2 marks off an A* in the June 2013 paper

    Sir, now that you've seen both papers, do you think the grade boundaries will be higher than the June 2013 grade boundaries (165 - A*)?

    There are various ways to do it but the easiest is to use two circle theorems (angles in the same segment and angles in a semicircle) and the RHS rule for congruency.

    For 16b, would -6/8 as my final answer give me full marks?
    for 27 I wrote as my answer as 3/25 instead of 12% - will I lose a mark?
    For 25 would the answer just be 'yes' or would there need to be more to it?
    for the final question what would the explanation be?

    Also can anyone remember was question 20 was??

    Thanks in advance.

    16b) yes

    27) you *might* lose 1 as it asked for a percentage

    25) this has a * next to the question so you need to give full working - the other line is y = 2x + 4 and they intersect at (0, 4).

    20) See my next post

    What was the reverse percentages question?
    In a sale normal prices are reduced by 20%.

    A washing machine has a sale price of £464.

    By how much money is the normal price of the washing machine reduced?

    Sir, what mark do you think you need to get at least a B?
