    I'm aiming for a C aswell (not that I'll get it😂😂)
    I think to be completely safe 70 overall (with both papers combined)
    Lol I'll be retaking in November then, I've only got 25 marks so far from the unofficial mark scheme so I need like 45 marks on the calculator paper to make sure I pass:ashamed:

    In retrospect, it seems my subconscious thinks that 2 x 2 x 2.5 = 30

    This probably won't help the fact that I need to get an A* in Maths to do Further Maths at A-Level.

    At least 2 hrs a day now I just go through all topics (from grade D-A*) and practise questions on them or watch videos on them if I don't understand something. As you said, I also do lots of past papers and sometimes my tutor will give me a few a-level questions to do to try and push my thinking. That is by no means necessary but no harm done

    If you're stronger on the calculator paper, you can do it! I'm supposedly better at non-calc where I've counted 36 marks but on the mocks for the calculator papers I get about 19 marks so yeah I'm screwed
    I'm sure you'll be okay, though!

    2/5 = 36 (amount of males)

    Therefore 3/5 = amount of females

    1/5 = 18

    3/5 = 18*3 = 54


    36+54 = 90

    This is what Edexcel told me last summer.

    "A levels and GCSEs are taken all over the world by thousands of international students. Unfortunately, due to time zoning, it is not possible all students to sit the examinations at the exact time as our UK candidates, meaning they will sit later in the day. Technically, posting any content online is a copyright issue, but the primary concern for us is where a paper and answers are posted within 24 hours of an examination being sat. We ask all our teachers that they abide by the exam board's regulations in order to uphold the integrity of the examination.

    As it causes a large number of complaints, may I ask that in future, you observe the 24 hour moratorium before posting the examination online?

    Very kind thanks

    Pearson Education"

    This really needs to be sorted out because the FULL answer paper that was published on here makes a mockery of the whole situation.

    If this paper is sat in different time zones, why don't Edexcel produce regional-zone GCSE papers like with the IGCSE Edexcel maths?

    OR

    Why don't Edexcel make it compulsory that overseas schools sit IGCSE (if they haven't already done so).
    The situation is only going to get worse in future years with improved technology and communications.

    Come on Edexcel, clarify the situation !!!

    I can't believe I got stuck on question 4
    It tells you that 3/5th of the teachers are female, which means 2/5th are male, and it also tells you that there are 36 male teachers, which means that 2/5th of all the teachers=36. If you let x= the total amount of teachers, then 2/5th of x(male teachers)=36, then you can rearrange to get the value of x. 5*36=180, and 180/2=90, so x=90.

    That's how I did it in the exam.

    woah that's so simple!

    For Question 5 (Estimate 892 ÷ 18.9)
    I got the answer 50 (lack of concentration) but now i know the real answer is 45. However because it is an estimate question would i get any marks since my answer was near the correct answer?

    for the probability of the raining tennis match one (can't remember the exact wording) i put 4000/10000 which cancels out to the correct answer of 0.4 - would i still get the marks even though i put it as a fraction and not a decimal?
