1. People how did it go!!! I think i got like 40 marks
2. I think I got 60 approximately, maybe 63/64 with luck if my workings can get 1 or 2 marks... I used a instead of 2a on the sum of arithmetic series question and I don't think there's any follow through marks for that, so 5 marks lost instantly... :'(

The question with the quadratic with the constant 'p' was an absolute mess, I ended up with 4p^2
3. I think this paper was absolutely brutal, up to Q6 it was easy but after that No idea what happened. Really disappointed
4. Idk about that exam I answered everything but got some really top heavy fractions, and was quite unsure about how plausible they looked
5. So EASY!
6. Omg I almost missed out the 2nd question, and I dunno if I did well.... :/
7. How old was John on the last question? I found 27 years but not sure, it was a f******g hard paper
8. I got so many fractions that I gave up.
My hands were shaking the whole time and I just couldn't think. Suffice to say, I've missed the A grade
9. Think I got above 60, just don't know what sort of A
Hope everyone found it okay

So EASY!
I cry
11. k = 41/8 .... Why not just 5, thanks for being difficult
12. Glad i wasnt the only one who found it challenging hopefully the grade boundaries will be a bit lower :L
13. I maybe lost 12-15 marks, I ran out of time! So I rushed the last 3 Questions, I think next exam I need to start with the hardest, because at the end if I don't have time, I can do the easy ones quick.

Did anyone of you get 17/2 somewhere? I don't remember the question, but I think the gradient was = 17/2 or something.

Same with me, I got fractions too. I tried rechecking and still got fractions :/
16. See if I had an Uncle like John I would be able to afford a Maths tutor and do well in C1, right now quadrilaterals are me least favourite shape.
17. How to square root a huge fraction?????

Swear Edexcel had nicer numbers in the past papers.
It's always our year
