Trust cost me my A* at gcse loool, nah it was a bit like differentiation in C2, where you have to find an expression and then show that it equals another equation, usually with pyramids and cylinders!

Back then I did not have this brain hahaha, so I couldn't do it
GCSE maths? I think I learned the whole syllabus for that during the weekend before year 10 started

Don't internationals get a different paper now?
Only for those of us taking the paper significantly earlier than the UK. The current midnight rule is for those taking it later than the UK.

I'm not sure if people taking the international paper can start discussion early

Note that they said OD:OB = 1:4, NOT OD: DB = 1:4.

OD is 1/4 of OB, which is the WHOLE line.
oh..ok .. i get that ...

If you got an international paper for M1, you're getting international papers for them all

Yes, but it's not worth it, as I'm pretty sure about my answers except one little question.

how would you do the very last part of this question?

The sphere touches all the faces, so they are tangents to it, as such.

You'll find it simpler if you look at it in a 2D perspective:

Spoiler:

x would be the angle you found in part (d).

I'm actually quite good at mental maths. But there's something mystical about 8*7. I think they discussed it for 30 seconds on numberphile.
