# Edexcel AS/A2 Mathematics M1 - 8th June 2016 - Official Thread watch

1. Are there no mark schemes for the mechanics bronze, silver and gold papers? I've searched everywhere and I can't find the mark schemes only the question papers which seems really pointless..
Anyone know where to find them?

Really? Hmm...Well, I don't see anywhere where I went wrong in my working! Maybe show your working?
I think you got the sin and cos the wrong way round...
3. How come there aren't any Madas M1 papers?

Does anyone else find it hard to figure out whether there is a reaction force happening or not at a support on a beam? It seems quite hit and miss to me

I have the same issue. It's very hard to figure out. Can someone please explain ?

There's always a reaction force at a support on a beam UNLESS the beam is pivoting about that support, hope that makes sense

10. I'm completely stuck on this M1 question, I don't get what's going on as I've never seen vectors and moments combined? (Q4 a,b)

I'm pretty sure I've seen this question before - it's from a Solomon paper right? I'm not sure how to do it but I think my teacher said it's more something M2 peeps would do than us. However, someone on here can probably help you out though haha.
13. I've seen this come up a lot in questions, although I haven't really had to use it, I don't understand what it means. Can only explain what a questions means when they say

"lies in the same vertical plane as this line of greatest slope."

an example of a question where they say this (although it comes up in many other questions)

14. can you use a vector triangle of forces for bodies or particles which are not in equilibrium?
15. If you put two different ways of answering a question and they give you different answers do you get the marks for the correct one?

As in, are you allowed to give two answers and then they just mark the correct one?

There are no proper M1 paper, but you can get a question by topic booklet. I'd recommend trying out the Delphis paper on Physics and Maths tutor.

How do you state it? Because as far as I can tell from the markscheme anything you put must be marked, and even if something is crossed out they will try to mark it?

Cross out one of your answers. Whenever I get two different solutions using different methods , I keep both methods but then at the end I state my answer by writing something like "therefore the tension in the string is..." so I could at least get some method marks.
