Am I right in saying that questions 8,9 and 12 are missing from this mark scheme?
8 isn't anymore. 12 is bisectors, so a little harder to put in, but I'm working on it.

Does anyone know if it's possible to do the varnishing floor question with a different method to this mark scheme because I'm pretty sure I got it right but remember doing it differently

If you got the right answer, then normally in the mark scheme, they count all marks, so I wouldn't worry!
3. Hello was it anticlockwise or clockwise for q2, i did clockwise will i still be able to pick up 1 mark

For the question about the tiles I did a completely different method that everyone I've spoke to and came to the conclusion that :
No. because she has enough to cover 37.5m^2 but needs to cover 50m^2 so she's 12.5m^2 short
DID ANYONE GET ANYTHING SIMILAR // know if I will get any marks? I was pretty confident on that question lol
I did that too!! I hope it was right

Is it okay that i wrote 100TT cm^2 - TT25 cm^2 instead of 100TT cm^2 -25 TTcm^2
Doesn't matter it's still the same thing.

If u get 68 in the calculator aswell u will get an A overall ! Based on last years grade boundaries u could get 63 in both and get an A, u should be fine because the calculator test is easier (in my opinion)
I have some serious work to put in to get 68 on the calculator paper...
Hello was it anticlockwise or clockwise for q2, i did clockwise will i still be able to pick up 1 mark
It was 90 degrees anti clockwise.

Because you are trying to find the midpoint not Q... I think!
I got that too
9. (Original post by Ayesha_N)
I'm pretty sure they are lower than that. If not, I'm screwed!
Haha yeah, i seriously dont think an a would be much higher than 66 as it was 63 for an a last year so they wouldnt raise them too much

I got 72 for the Circle Theorems one, and Root3 - Root2 for the last one. All in all a very good paper, one of the easiest I've ever done, reckon I got about 90 odd marks. Max I lost 10 marks.
That's 8 marks you've lost there.
11. 78/100 is what grade and what do I need in calc paper for a*?
12. has everyone seen the full mark scheme yet? it's up with scanned photos of the questions & method too so all this debating can stop Hah
13. Why are people saying they got like 90+ when the unofficial mark scheme doesnt even have all the questions on LOL

it was 90 degrees anti clockwise.
bye bye life i have made so many mistakes i wanna die
15. (Original post by blessingmariee)
Midpoint. I am so confused as to how that is the answer and not 3,4.75?
Me too, that's what I got! Did I completely misread the question?
16. (Original post by alicerose.j)
I did that too!! I hope it was right

17. [QUOTE=alicerose.j;65203663]For the floor vanishing question was it 7.5 x 5 = 35.5 ?? I got 35.5 and said it wasn't enough
