Brilliant coz I started panicking thinking aww i didn't answer all the questions. I noticethough that some questions on the higher are similar to the found one?
This is usually the case.
2. According to the worked solutions i think i got 94. At least i hope so.

What did you get for the solving equation question? Something starting with xsquared = .....
i think i got 6

A link to a full mark scheme was posted

Can you please comment or reply to me and tell me what you got roughly? I got 75 out of 100
Worst case scenario: 86/100.
Best case: 94-95/100.
6. YES i got 80 and am aiming for an A, I might be able to get an A* overall but i dont wanna get too carried away
7. Art gallery was 11
She didn't have enough varnish

9. For question 14 I simplified 100-25pi to 25(4-pi)
Would I still get full marks?
10. I think I messed up the question about the standard form, I did 0.7x10^9, which would give the same answer but apparently it isn't standard form!

I think I got 94 -ish. 75 is probably a solid A!
12. For the circle theorem question, I got all the rules and the Angles until the final stage where i made a calculation error and instead of 180-42 /2 = 69 I did 180-42 / 2= 79 ... HOW MANY MARKS SHOULD I GET IF IT WAS OUT OF 5?

Yes that's fine.
14. Thank you.
15. for the last part of the vectors question about point S, i put that it was also 3:1 on the line OT (or something like that) and said the lines were the same. Could i get at least 1 mark for that?

probably 3/5 might be lucky and get 4 though.

Why did you put 100π?
Oh sorry I didn't put that I put 100cm^2 - TT25cm^2 would I still get the mark?
