I'd say 85ish

Can you please comment or reply to me and tell me what you got roughly? I got 75 out of 100
I also got 75, very happy with that.
5. For the envelope question on writing down T as a formula which was T=5X+20Y i actually wrote that then put a line through it and cancelled it down to T=X+5Y. Does anyone know if I still get any marks or not?
6. (Original post by LogicalFallacy)
Definitely?
I remember seeing 3 on the paper and i think that it is 1 mark for identifying the formula, 1 mark for the answer and 1 mark for the unit (cm^3)

You couldn't cancel in that question, only simplify so if you wrong t=x+5y and not t=5(x+4y) then you would be wrong. probably 1 mark.

The teacher question... I'm quite sure the question asked how many male teachers there are; not the total number of teachers?
The only question I really struggled with was Q9... What the hell were we meant to do there?
I think it did say he total, not just the males

Full marks, as long as you complete the table you should get it.

it was 4 marks, so worst case scenario you'll get 3 for not showing the constant was 100.
11. Could the question with the answer T=5x+20y be factorised further to give simplest form of T=5(x+4y)?
12. 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?
13. I think I got 67 anyone know what the grade boundaries are most likely going to be?
14. What did the vectors question look like again?

You might be given a BOD mark which means benefit of doubt..if they can see you had the right answer (eg. ONE simple line through it, making it still readable) then some lenient examiners would give you marks

Ergh. That is so frustrating because I wrote that twice before crossing it out and cancelling it. Yeah hopefully I can still get 1 mark for them seeing how I did it haha. Thanks.

Yes.
18. I think I got around 84..I was really really hoping for an A* so let's hope this next paper is promising :-)

I'll create a foundation one here too.
Is there a link to it> Or have u not started to create it yet??

Yes I've heard about BOD. I only put one line through the answer so fingers crossed, haha!
