1. Willing to contribute to an unofficial mark scheme as I'm confident I've got between maybe 92-97 marks but I know where my mistakes were!

That one was easy if you approach it well. All I did was divide and got 0.1, 0.2 and 0.5 (that should be right)

Worked out the value of K to be 100 and substituted. Got 100, 25 and 4 I think

1. 750cm^2 for the first question
2. 45 days for the oil question

4.11 females went to the art gallery

Hiya! You are welcome to talk about the Maths GCSE in here - the international exams are staggered by time zone and there are a couple of different papers that international students take to prevent cheating or exam sharing. So chat away! I hope the exam went well for you
Oh! That's good I like talking about how my exams went! Thank you
And yes it did, although I stupidly forgot to half my answer on the last question!
6. how do you do the last question? i got a really weird answer:

3-√6
-------
12

btw thats a fraction
7. For the vectors I got
a + b for OT
-a +3b for PR
3/4(a+b) for OS
wrote something like it's parallel

Can you post your unofficial mark scheme 😂
12. (Original post by Pribprib)
I got 69 and laughed for a solid minute or two. I'm still a 12 year old...
That's exactly what I did
13. What did you lot get for the last question? I got (3+8root6)/24

I haven't actually made one yet but I'll help with/start one when I get home

(3+8root6)/24

I got it wrong, but it was supposed to be 3-√6 all over 12
17. (Original post by TrumpIsFancy)
what'd you get for the standard form question? and what did the vector indicate (written part)?
7 x 10^8 I think - and I wrote that the points were the same distance away and parallel to the other line

agree with that
I said that it was parallel and that it showed that it was 3/4 of the line . because was worth 2 marks

I don't think it was inverse proportion. I did inverse proportion; however walking out of class some retard on extra time asked what the notation was and she said it was directly proportional. Which is ******** cheating but w/e.
Something being 1 over is the same as it being inversely proportional
20. I got 9 females, i know it's wrong, but did anyone else
i knew i mucked up, because when i was adding at the end i got 68 not 66 people
