    You know for part 1a) the very question if you put a maximum matching bipartite graph would u still get the mark?
    As long as the 2 words bipartite and graph are written down you should.

    For the last Q on CPA I said how the lower bound from the graph is a practial solution; whereas the one from the calculation is a theoretical ? will i get the mark?

    Yes most likely so..possibly.
    Here was my justification:

    Im sure there will be a range of answers.
    I like the idea of the dependent activities though.

    There will be two sets of grade boundaries which will depend on how the cohort do in each.

    C2 was loads easier. I thought M1 and S1 were harder.

    I think you would probably get away with just saying because it is bigger.

    I think you could be right.
    I thought as the paper was light of definitions Edexcel may have seen this as an opportunity to differentiate between 100UMS and 97/98.

    International M1 was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much easier in my view (and the view of my school). The questions were 'normal' ; like the last Q was similar to one of the past papers.

    The grade boundaries will probably reflect this.

    From experience:

    Many students want an easy paper before the they go into the exam and ask for low grade boundaries for the same exam when they walk out.

    Doing a 'duet' with ES sounds a good idea! I will see what he thinks.

    I want everything to be free for people to learn. I think there are too many barriers to people being successful as it is so anything free is good.

    I am working on a 120 hours DVD that will provide a full 30-60 minute tutorial on every topic in C1-4/M1/S1/D1 which will go on Amazon for about £15 at the end of the summer. Everything I put on youtube will always be free (unless they change that )
