1. for (Q19) i got 10.89 and i thought you cant round up people so i put 10, was it definitely 11
2. got 158 - 168 i think which is definitely an A so I am happy. if the grade boundaries and examiners are generous I might even get an A*

shame i screwed up on the last question though, had to rush it in 10 minutes and it took me 7 mins just to realise what to do thanks to a brain fart.

4. For the LAST QUESTION if you rounded the angle and/or the missing length then you would have got 80.4 degrees. I got 80.3 degrees and used the exact length and angle. The true answer was 80.3390311 degrees. Did anyone else get 80.3 degrees? Worried that i may have not got 6 marks???
5. Is there a paper with solutions document anywhere?
6. the answer was around 3.78 or something but I don't think your supposed to round it up or down so it's 3.7

Rounding during the working isnt always reliable. you should get 4-5 marks for method. but its the rounding which could bring you back a mark or two. nothing to get too worried about
8. Mr Kibria, the guy who did the unofficial mark scheme for paper one (with all the questions, answers and number of marks) has said he's not doing one for the second paper

My teacher told me the mark scheme may allow both as they have in the past, but the best option was to go for 11.

I got 40.0?
same!!
even my friends got that
now I'm not so sure if i even did that well
11. For q24a everyone seems to have got -1/3x+4
But i got 1/-3x-4 which equals the same if you sub in any x value. Will i get the marks?

i think both answwers would have been accepted because theyre both the same thing
i did the -1/3x+4 one though just to make sure xP
16. Guys I'm going to have a heart attack. For the love of God can someone please tell me that around 145 is a secure A ? These really high grade boundary speculations are killing me.
