1. Doing a C3 paper, I had to find the solutions to an equation. The values of x were between the range 0 and pi, however I included more outside the range. Would I lose marks?

It is edexcel and they are solutions.

Not on edexcel.

You would be penalised for incorrect solutions or missed solutions but not for extra "correct" solutions that are outside the range of the question.
