1. I really found the paper hard today ... I'm really really scared that I did not pass
I was wondering whether they will put the grade boundries low for this paper although the non calculator was okay
When can I get a unofficial mark scheme

5. (Original post by 2007RSP)
Which questions did you find hard?
loads of them like the crisps question and the one after that i couldnt get my head around, the last 3 questions aswell were solid
6. (Original post by 2007RSP)
Which questions did you find hard?
Well most questions starting from the middle to the end we're all hard
7. The paper was easy except the last question
8. I had to go and take a break because I wasn't feeling too well, and they didn't give me that time back! I didn't have the time to even attempt the last few questions! Plus my method and working out is usually different to the mark scheme! I'm predicted a B, I think I'll probably get a C.
9. here are the answers I got, not sure if theyre all right or not

omg im really hating these answers !!!!!!!! Plz dont tell me theyre correct i feel sick
11. I found the exam quite easy but the only that i was unable to produce an answer was something about trays

well think about it this way: there are hundreds of thousands of teenagers sitting the exam. I bet that there is a large chunk that found the test hard as well so ur not alone. Plus the grade boundaries for maths usually isnt as high as for other subjects tbh.

I got really similar answers but for the last question i got 80.1 . There's a lotta debate for the answer to that q so I have no idea what it is...

omg im really hating these answers !!!!!!!! Plz dont tell me theyre correct i feel sick
I think some of them are incorrect, dont worry

Awww thanks
16. So baffled at question 24a... How did you guys get that? I thought they weren't the same so I didn't cancel out, plus it was 2 marks
17. Yea for Q12 I got 168 degrees, the one with the Pentagon and the lines.
I initially got 144 degrees but I realised that the Triangles formed were half of the interior angles which had to be 144 degrees
90 + 144/2 = 168 degrees
180 - 168 degrees = 12 degrees
180 - 12 degrees = x = 168 degrees

Just wondering if anyone else got this cause im super worried ;P

i found out each interior angle (108)
divided that by 2 because the angle was bisected and got 54
then i did 108+54+54 = 216
took that away from 360 because it was a quadrilateral and got 144
then because opposite angles are equal got x as 144
20. Ahh, I'd worked out the angles wrong :/ Thanks
