Does anyone have access to the paper, or know how much exactly each question was based markwise
Here:

2. what is 97/200?. Please let me know
Because I really really need a B
3. (Original post by IAmGorillaz)
same!!
even my friends got that
now I'm not so sure if i even did that well
No don't fret, there were other big questions you could have grabbed marks from the other parts of the paper.
4. loool me too but it's a two part question it ain't that sadly
5. (Original post by 34908seikj)
Wasn't the last question like 1/2 * 7 * 8 Sin(X) = 18

56Sin(x) = 36

Sin^-1(36/56) = X

x = 40

???

I think I did it wrong then.
yeah, it was at first but then I think you had to use the cosine rule or something to get the other angle. I also did that thinking that it was the correct method but then in the last minute I realised that I hadn't completed it.... you'll get some marks though so don't worry.
6. I think the reason why people got 80.4 or 80.1 on the last one was down to if they rounded each digit they got for each step of the answer. I got 80.1 and I tried to stay as accurate as possible, but whether people with 80.4 rounded up or down or the other way round I don't know?
just everyone stay chill lol BC nothing we can do now, stay happi & positive dudes X
7. I think I got 145/200, somewhere around there. Do you think I will get an A?
8. For question 3, I put x= 37/4. Will I still get full marks!!???!?

Have you got a link for the non calculator one?

I've been asking the same bloody question and nobody's responding. I think I'm going to have a heart attack.

11. What would i get out of 6 for the last one if i only got to 40.0 degrees.
12. Someone help me. I wanna do Maths Alevel but I need an A and I'm pretty sure after those papers I got a B💔 If I don't do maths then idk what else to do
13. Thanks
14. (Original post by guy321)
No i didnt round. Im saying that i used the exact values and got 80.3
Ah right, im not entrirely sure then.
15. Is there a mark scheme for the foundation paper? (Lower)

Yh that's definitely an A. An A is predicted to be 140 this year. An A won't be more any more than 140 tbh. Congrats. I'm hoping to get an A as well, as I screwed up to get an A*

Depending on the method of working and what you used, 2/3 marks if the examiner see's where you're coming from
18. I got 39.9 for the last one and that's apparently not right.
I did the 1/2 ab sin (c) thing then solved that to get angle. Then I used Cosine rule to get length opposite angle. Then I did Cosine again with three lengths to get the angle. Will I get any method marks for this? If so, how many?

For the first question (part b) I left it as 9/20, will I still get the marks?
Yes
