I got around:
Paper 1: 91
Paper 2: 90

Is that a safe A*??

Seriously this paper would have been such an easy 100%. Made so many silly mistakes
I'm so salty rn
If it's not an A*, I'd be making a complaint if I were you!

I'm a Maths teacher and I had (a small) top set year 11... I am predicting 12 x A*, 8 x A and 4 x B, but a couple of those As could move to A* and a couple of the Bs could move to A I think.

Oh so sorry, what is your perspective on the grade boundaries for an A this year?

Nobody does until they are released by the board. I expect they will be fairly average, so 163ish for an A*, 133ish for an A, 100ish for a B, 55ish for a C, 30ish for a D and 15ish for an E.

This could be an exam question "What is wrong with this questionnaire?"

11. Doesn't this use the halfway point to decide which way to go, same as those who wrote 3.8 did?

Bro your 100% right the answer is 3.7, not 3.8 this proves it, on this trial and improvement question, question 11.

Like you 3.7 is closer because when you take away the number from ti, it's closer than 3.8.

People that thinks the answer is 3.8 is wrong lol.
12. where is the mark Scheme for foundation paper
13. Can you get the actual worked out solutions of the exam paper for this exam?

You said I was wrong in quite an abrupt way, criticising my maths and you didn't even use the correct grammar to do so. Take the defeat graciously and learn from it. Mistakes are beneficial if we use them as a learning opportunity. Good luck for your English results too!

Everyone on here is saying the exam was "easy" - but I know a lot of people who struggled with it so I would say yes....but don't take my word for it

For the last question I can't remember exactly what I did at the start but I split the triangle into two which gave me two right angled triangles. I was then able to use Pythagoras to find out the missing lengths then the cosine rule to find out the angle for each triangle which I added together at the end. Would this still not be relevant?
Apologies for delay.

Finding the angle (using absinC/2) followed by trigonometry, pythagoras, subtraction and trigonometry followed by adding the angles together is a ridiculously, long-winded and brilliantly way of doing it, well done !!!

You can stop saying "lol"now.
20. For the last question, how many marks do you think I would get for working out up to 40 degrees? 1 mark or 2?
