On the circle theorem question would I get 2 marks for doing 90-48=42 and staying angles btween a tangent and radius are 90 ??
yes,

at least 1 if not 2, but i would say 2
it also depends how many angle facts and working you needed to do, e.g. if you done 1/6 of the question then probably 1 mark, if you done like 1/3 of the question then like 2 marks

Our exam was definitely easier

I'm saying 135-140 for A for us (maybe 130-140) - but it probably won't be as high as 140, but that's the 'safe' mark that you got an A
What do you think the grade boundary for a grade C would be?
I predict i got 31-33 on non calculator and 39-40ish on calculator

Also on the non calc question 3a would it count as a mark if i put that 'often' was repeated two times in the question and that there was no time frame. (weekly, monthly)

I found the sample non calc for next year really hard!
The foundation paper looks a lot more like a higher paper!

C will be around 65 (60-65 maybe) I think, you should get a C if you got above 70 (if you added the marks right)

I'm not sure if you will get a mark for that questionnaire answer you put!

Maybe if the examiner is lenient, but it could very likely also not get you a mark :/

Best of luck though

- you'll get a mark for 'no time frame' though

Grade boundarie on C, how many marks you think you need to get a C? Iused the unofficial markscheme and gave harsh marks and got over 70 marks in total.

Also on question 3a would it count if i put that 'often' was repeated two times in question and answer boxes.

When would an official mark scheme be released? Also i hope and pray that i get a grade C so i don't ever have to do maths again lol, hopefully 70 marks just scrapped a C.

70 marks is definitely a C don't worry (if you did get 70 )

Official mark schemes are released when they make the papers available on the website, so June 2015 paper + mark scheme became available like a month ago, so our paper + official mark scheme will be available in like May lol
(but the teachers may have access to it early - i know they have access to the paper after 10 days after exam)

Can't wait, also do you get marks for working out even if the answer is wrong? Because if that's true then i would have extra 2-4 marks.

if you look at any mark scheme there are B1 M1 A1 marks

B1 is working
M1 is method
A1 is accuracy (e.g. correct answer)

so you will get some marks for working (if the method is correct, but the numbers you used are wrong because of your previous answer - if it's completely wrong then no)

unless of course you get a sad and grumpy examiner

Thanks bro! I'm litteally praying for a good examiner to mark my paper lol, and one more question you know for the tree diagram tennis match in the non calc question 21 part a, i wrote 0.8 and 0.3 but accidently put 0.5 so would i get 2/3 marks???

It was a tree diagram and you had to do 6 blanks/branches, so 3 different trees
I think it's 1 mark per tree

So 1 mark for every blank that you wrote, I may be wrong, but It should be like that
If you got 2 right, that's 1 mark,
If you got 4 right, that's 2 marks,
If you got all 6 right, that's 3 marks
At least that's what i think
