Last day to win £100 of Amazon vouchers - don't miss out! Take our quick survey to enter 24-10-2016
1. How did everyone find this exam?
2. For the question where you had to turn the two fractions into one fraction in its simplest form what did we get? I can't remember the question exactly
3. any chance anyone remembers what the first 5 pages were about and the last 5???

Hi guys! I decided to make a thread for the upcoming Maths exam.

http://www.m4ths.com/gcse-videos-higherfoundation.html

Past papers: http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...567-from-2012/

Feel free to discuss anything about the exam below.
Is there an unofficial mark scheme yet 😁 I thought it went so bad today so want to see how I did
5. Lots of people from my school found the exam hard, so hopefully the grade boundaries will be lower than last year...

Got 2 pi for the last question.
For the gradient one i got -1.5 and the intercept as 0.5,
and for the point where the two lines cross i got (3, -4)
For the running question i got 120 metres
The graph equation i got (x-2)^2
I got P as 6 (cube root of 2^p = 4)
K as -4 on the indices question
Pocket money as 7.50
For the cumulative frequency table i got false(?) true , false
For the area of my triangle i got 27(?)
Voucher A by a few pounds
I got pretty much the same as you aside from P as 5 and True, True, False (I think)

I got

9x+7
---------------
(X+2) (X-3)

If I remember properly (the signs might be the wrong way round)

I am sure p was 6 but i could be wrong, most people i know got true, true, false (aside from me )
9. can anyone tell me what the first 5 and last 5 pages in the paper were about question wise??
10. 1/118

The first page was the reflection and translation questions followed by the drawing your own triangle bits. Uh i think the next few questions were the simple expressions and then there was the voucher A/B question?

It probably was 6 haha! I'm a notorious idiot when it comes to maths exams. Some of my previous mistakes include 1.5+1.5=3.5 and 13-7 is 7. Sometimes I can't believe I'm predicted A*'s

I got p as 6 aswell so if you do 2 to the power of 6 is 64 64 cube root is 4 so therefore p must be 6

I the last question was the length of the arc, and there was a couple of surds and a solve by factorising question above the write as a single fraction question. There were also histogram, probability and vector questions

Ah good that's what I got too!

Would it be marked according to certain values or ranges?
