1. Hello everyone.
Hope the exam went well for you.
I'm 100000% confident the answers I got are correct, hence I'm making this Unofficial Mark scheme.

Q.1) Factorise and solve the equation for x and the answer is 8.

Q.2)There was a Nth term sequence going up by 2n each time.
On the diagram you were give n,2n,_,_
You had to work out the total value of the first 4 terms and The answer was 135.

Q.3)
a)Plotting for Train A
b)Plotting for Train B.
c)80mph was the speed of train B.

Q.4)
Car B was cheaper.

Q.5)
7 blue discs.

Question 6)
Factorise to get: 2x(3x+7)

Q.7)
You had to list all the values that satisfied The Inequality and they were:
-3,-2,-1,0,1

Q.7)
b)Draw a line to represent the Inequality of 2< x >=10
You should have put a solid dot at 10 and clear one at 2.

Q.8)
John and Nick share money in ratio 5:2. They have a difference of £150
Work out how much in total they get.

Q.9)
a)Find Reciprocal of 0.2 and Answer is 5.
b)What is 8.5^0 and Answer is 1
c)Factorise 27^1/3 x 7^-2

10) You had a graph and you had to state all the Inequalities for the shaded region.
They were:
x+y < 7 and x >= 2 y > 1

11) The question had something like this:

x-20 : x + 280 is meant to = 1/4 or something like that.

Basically you had to find a value for x that satisfied that and made it = 1/4.

12)a)Forgot

12)b)Forgot

Please remind me of these questions... I know there were a few to do on surds.

15)Simplify an expression and I'm not sure whether you had to leave it at 2x-1/2x+5 or -1/5 (CORRECT ME)

16)You had to find its identity something like that and
a=6
b=9

17)You had some Fractions and you had to turn it into a Quadratic then solve it, The answers were x=7 or x=-4

I've forgotten some of the questions. If you tell me them I shall remember the answers. Have any disagreements or thoughts? Leave a comment below.

I shall clean this up when I get home....
That was a solid paper... I've only got 25 so far (My A grade is out of the window for sure).

The last question was solving a quadratic equation from the algebraic fractions, which I can't remember. I messed this up and made the wrong quadratic.

There was a question where we had to simplify an algebraic fraction (I think it had 2x on both the denominator and numerator).

If I remember anything else, I'll tell you.

I've updated it...I shall add more when I get home.

4. There was a number machine question which involved you using Simultaneous equations to solve a and b.

I have the answer but can't remember the question, If anyone can tell me I can add it it.

3a - 5 = b
a + b = 64

Something to do with those. I ****ed up the simultaneous equation!
6. (Original post by Jamie Vardy)
3a - 5 = b
a +b = 64

Something to do with those. I ****ed up the simultaneous equation!
Hmm something is wrong with that. I think the second part is wrong....

I didn't sit the paper (Just passing ) but if it wanted you to solve the above for a and b....

a + (3a - 5) = 64
4a - 5 = 64
4a = 69

a = 17.25

b = 46.75

I know for a fact that the second part is not as Vardy stated.

i believe it was
input -> x3 -> -5 -> output

when input is a, output is b
a+b= 64

Can't believe I've forgotten how I worked out my answers, but I know I didn't get the same answers. Perhaps I went wrong?

i think i made a mistake in my previous comment, i meant that if the input is a+b, the output is 64. i might be wrong but this is how i did it in the exam:

3a-5=b

3(a+b)-5=64
3(a+3a-5)-5=64
3a+9a-15-5=64
12a-20=64
12a=84
a=7

input 'a' into 3a-5=b :
7x3-5=b
21-5=b
b=16

input 'a' into 3a-5=b :
7x3-5=b
21-5=b
b=16
That sounds right, im sure 8
I did the same

That's wrong (I think) though because the original statement said a + b = 64

You said a is 7 and b is 16 but 16 + 7 does not = 64....
15. "15)Simplify an expression and I'm not sure whether you had to leave it at 2x-1/2x+5 or -1/5"

2x-1/2x+5 does not equal -1/5 because you can't take 2x out of either top or bottom, it is not a factor.

2x-1/2x+5 is correct

oh, nevermind then
i thought the exam said that when the input is a+b the output is 64

16+7=23
23x3=69
69-5=64

but maybe i misread it lol

Looks like I've forgotten the answer and stuff to the question Does anyone remember what number it was?
18. How come barely anyone did this paper? Anyway, was it hard or easy?

Good point.

I am confident i got this question right but cant remember with accuracy my answer or the question.
I do remember something along the lines of 3(a+b)-5 but only vaguely.
