Last years paper was 98 overall for a B, but the mark scheme could change
Ah kk thanks hope the boundary is lower due to the non calculator paper that was a bit hard tbh xD

I think i got around 90 on the first paper and i cant really remember most of my answers for this paper. What do you think i need to get an A*?
Mid/ high 80's on this paper if you got 90

Just 80 more to stay safe
4. Does anyone remember how many marks there were available for the interest question?...i fully failed that one.
5. Ok thank you!

The other exam went quite well, yeah. Perhaps there's still a chance of an A. I've been stuck at a B for a couple of years now - I stopped paying attention and messed around in class in year 9 so got put into second set for year 10.
Back into top set for year 11 and I've worked as hard as I can so HOPEFULLY it'll pay off and I'll get the A grade I was hoping for.

If so, I've gone from the school questioning if I'll even pass it, to getting a fantastic grade.
Fingers crossed.

How did everybody else do?
Well... I think hard work always pays off, soo I'm sure you've got your well deserved A 👏🏾👏🏾

Reps are not necessary but would be appreciated

It would be really useful if you could remember the question numbers
1. Order numbers correctly and include a key
b) 9/20=
0.45
2a. 5a*2b*3c =
30abc
b. Factorise fully 3y +6 =
3(y+2)
c. Expand x(x-3)=
x^2-3x
3.
x=9.25
4. Smallest packet was best value for money because it was cheapest per bag of crisps
5. 4 times as many red than green: There were 0.4 blue and 0.15 yellow.
0.4+0.15+4x+x=1
0.55+5x=1
5x=0.45
x=0.09
4x=0.36
Green- 0.09 Red- 0.36
6a. 20.3
b. 68.04kg
c. 2.61m
7. 3.8
8a. 4:3
b. 480 pixels
9.x= 124 degrees
10. 7.92
11.£42.29
12. x=144 degrees
13.
-2 -1 0 1 2
-1 3 1 -1 3
Draw curve
14. 3 Bars
15. No, because 7766.22 was greater than 7500 pounds
16. 128g
b.11g
17. 30.1
18. 10a^5b^4
b. y= 5p^2-x
19.11 males
20. x= 0.29 or x= -2.29
21. 29.25
22. F.d- 1.6, 3.2, 2.4, 1.8, 0.3
23.28.9
24a. -1/3x+4
b. 2x/(x+1)(x-1)
25. 80.4
It would be amazing and much appreciated if you could write the number of marks.

Ok thanks!

If they want is to 1 dp then you have to test halfway between the two 1dp values (so 3.75) to know whether 3.8 is closer or 3.7 so you would have lost at least 1 mark
Ah, ive been a silly sausage. Oops.
11. (Original post by niichola.)
Question 15 did not equal to £7766.22
Because 1st year depreciated by 23%
so 0.77 x 15000 = £11550
then after the 1st year it was 18%
so 0.82 x 11550 = £9471
therefore no it was not more than half
You had to times by 0.23 and then by 0.18 for the following two answers. I got what they are saying and so did the majority of year.
12. Mr kibria posted the paper yet?
13. (Original post by 9091student)
that is such a pisstake, what do you think you got out of 100?
Aha well I'm waiting for the worked solutions, but maybe in the 90s? Maths is my strongest subject :3 unlike English... Which I fail at xD

Last year total score was 155 for an A* (http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...Boundaries.pdf), 2014 was 164 for an A* (http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...Boundaries.pdf).

It'll be somewhere around that mark, around the 150-170 mark. Of course, that's vague given nobody really knows but I've got a feeling grade boundaries will be on the high side this year as most people are saying they found the papers relatively easy.

All the best.

That's what I was thinking, but isn't it true that the grade boundaries could be high? I really want an A and I think I got 72 on the non-calculator paper so how much do you think I would need on this one?

Judging from previous papers' grade boundaries, I'd say you'd need a minimum of 66/67 marks to secure an A

You should be alright

90? ;O lucky you aha i need to get an A in order to do Maths Alevel #fingerscrossed

na allow it howwwwww?
Density was 8g/cm^3
The wheelbarrow/trolley can only carry 250kg
But your density is still in grams so you have to divide the mass of the metal bar by 1000

Yeah, it'll help me to be more confident in myself if I have that A grade. I'm not doing A levels just because it's not the path that'll get me the qualification that I need but I'd still like an A grade. Also my Dad's pushing for it, so hopefully.

On the other hand, my mum never passed her maths, so ya know...

After trying 3.7 and 3.8, you needed to try 3.75. 3.75 was too small, so the number was between 3.75 and 3.8, meaning it was closer to 3.8 than 3.7.
Would you have had to try 3.75? I didn't try it, I just tried 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8 and put 3.8 as my final answer because it says to 1 dp
