    When will the mark scheme be released?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Official markscheme should be released to teachers around the end of July (correct me if I'm wrong).

    EDIT: Corrected by Arsey above.

    I think I got 15.45 something and rounded to 15.5. But I would say, from all the papers I've done, that 15 is definitely right.
    If it was 15.45 then 2sf is 15 which is perfectly fine. If g is involved in the calculation they only accept 2sf, 3sf or answers left in terms of g

    Hey, For the lift one I stupidly put the lift as accelerating with magnitude 2ms^2 on both parts how many marks would i lose and would i get e.c.f if i did all the right working with it accelerating? also on question 7 c ii) I got the wrong answer, how many marks is this worth? and finally for 8 c) i got the wrong bearing but the magnitude correct. How many marks would I lose for each of these? thanks
    I did exactly that for the lift question! I felt so stupid.

    if g was involved and you dindt put it down you will definitely loose the final A1 mark but possibly more but i could be wrong :s

    Fair enough.





    It is a bit silly I think!
    Honestly, I think it's silly... I don't think I deserve the marks.. But i won't complain for now

    Q6ai HELP:

    I messed up the start of this question so much i couldn't come to a reasonable answer. I tried to use simultaneous equations but i must have gone wrong somewhere. In the end i guessed an answer so that i could go onto the next part of the question. The value i guessed was 20kg, instead of 25.

    I used the correct method in the next parts but obviously i won't get the accuracy marks. Can anyone guess what kind of marks i'll get / lose for this? Thanks

    Hey I messed up question 2 of the paper. I read that the lift accelerates at 2ms-2 instead of decelerates. I did all the working with this value correctly, would I lose all the marks out of 6 for this question?

    On that paper the grade boundaries I would say are:
    100 ums - 74
    90ums - 68
    80 ums - 62
    70 ums - 56

    Just what I think, at the end of the day what does it matter lol ... How the overall normal distribution of our marks turn out is what actually determines the boundaries

    you will get the method marks providing there no mistake in the method but you will loose the Acurracy /answers marks

    I'm not quite sure I know what you mean, but I know what I said was definitely right, look at previous mark schemes.

    Hey,
    I have attached a picture of what I wrote for question 2b. I got it wrong, the answer is actually 390 N. I was just wondering if I will get any method marks for it. Could someone tell me please, it would be very helpful.

    Thank you

    No, that's not true. You're not required to leave your answers in terms of g unless explicitly told otherwise.

    Yes of course it is, it makes things look much neater. Not to mention the fact that's its way more accurate. You'll be fine either way, as long as (if you didn't leave it in terms of g) you gave it to a suitable number of decimal places and not a ridiculous amount.

    I go to an average school, and the vast majority of people found this paper difficult as the questions were very different from past paper questions. For example the vector question. Additionally, bear in mind that some people had a C1 exam just before/after this exam. I am predict the grade boundaries to be low. A-56 B-48 C-41 D-35 E-28
