Edexcel GCSE Maths Paper 2 (9/6/16) Complete Unofficial Mark Scheme

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hopefully a C but don't get your hopes up because people are saying the grade boundaries could be higher so you might be a few marks off but we don't know for sure!

    Question 1b i wrote 9/20 will this still be correct or because its probability it will be 0.45??

    Thanks, Matt
    I imagine so because it is equivalent

    Do you get marks for trial and improvement of you do it slightly differently. Instead of leaving the equation as x^3-x=34, can you make it x^3-x-34=0?
    Just made the equation =0. Still got 3.8

    3.7 seemed to be closer than 3.8 but you have to try 3.75 as well. 3.75 was also too small, so the answer must be between 3.75 and 3.8.
    I got 3.8. But made the equation =0. It was x^3-x=34 , I made it x^3-x-34=0.
    Will I get marks??
