Its not even like i assumed i made mistakes, this is the first paper I've ever come out of and can say before its been marked I've lost a minimum of 12 marks, and I've learned of like 8 more I've lost. Im praying the calculator paper is my thing. To be honest, I've been getting A stars in all my mocks, but my GCSEs have all been really poor showings by me - i haven't truly finished one exam when before in my mocks id finish everything. I do not have a clue what has become of me
You are exactly like me!!! I do so gooood in my mocks but then my exams get effed up, idk if im nervous or if its the new questions that trip me up. I actually knew the inverse proportionality question but i thought it was a trcik so i just filled in the vlaue of x lost 4 marks there already. tbh im happy if i get an A and hopefully i will redeem my self and my into my 90's for the calc paper.
2. What would a C on both papers be?
3. is this the full mark scheme? like I'm not trying to be hate since I've not contributed its just that i think some questions are missing? I just want to know if this is the complete set of answers?? sorry x
4. Guys, what do you think a B grade would be?
5. how did everyone solve the quadratic graphical questions ?

Last question, for 12 B on bisecting questions, was it a triangle? or what did yours look like?
Is this what you're talking about, this question?
7. Need the amount of marks for each question to be updated, at the moment only getting around 43 but discounted ones which don't have amount of marks so hopefully it will go up?
8. For last question, Do i get a mark for doing this:

ROUTE 2/2 X ROUTE 3/3 = ROUTE 6/6?
9. I got 48 degree for the circle theorem
10. The last question answer was
1/4 -6√6/12

Spoiler:

Question 14(?).
Attachment 538769
Area of square = 10cm x 10cm = 100 cm²
Area of circle = π5² = 25π cm²
Area of shaded = Area of square - Area of circle = 100 cm² - 25π cm² = 100 - 25π cm²
It said simplest form so I put 25(4-π)cm2 and I'm pretty sure thats right.
Thanks for the mark scheme I got around 98 ^-^
12. (Original post by babymarima)
for the last question, I somehow simplified (3-√6)/12 into -√6/4

Is that wrong and if so, how many marks will I lose ( I followed all the right workings)
You'll get 2/3

thats wrong lmao.
14. For the algebra question I wrote -5m+10 will that still be right?
Thanks.

Guys, what do you think a B grade would be?
My estimate of this years non-calc grade based on past paper difficulty and grade boundaries:
A* - 84
A - 72
B - 63
C - 48
D - 40
16. Any ideas what you should be aiming for across both papers for an A*?

Every exam i have had i have not properly finished or done that well and so i think I've obviously missed by target grade but still getting a B or an A, but this one was a flat out fail. I was being bigged up by everyone for being the brainy one, now i am going to be about 3rd or 5th in the school league table and end up as a Shop manager or something. (Not being offensive to shop managers but it is a bit short of my expected career or Chartered engineer etc).
Ive fudged my GCSEs up, you hear about it, but you never think it could be you.

yes thats correct
19. Someone add the marks for each question so we can work out a rough overall score please, plus the angle bisectors aren't in this mark scheme which was two of them, like 4 marks!

(Original post by Jesnazzy)

I was pretty sure question 21 asked for the prob that it won't rain and it won't be cancelled - so the answer would be 0.76.

Who agrees?
I'm sure the first question was worth 3 marks and the k=100 one with the table was worth 4
