how does edexcel marking work?

For a Q, it said find the speed of (3i-4j).

What i did was found the correct speed (5m/s), but then went of a tangent and did some SUVAT equation to get another answer. Do they marks ONCE theyve seen the answer?

11. If I put a dotted line instead of a solid line on the argand diagram would I loose a mark?

Yes. A dotted line implies the circle is not included, so you would lose the mark.

Ok... I can't remember was that a two marker?
14. I integrated tanx instead of 1/tanx for Q3, does this mean I lose all the marks for that question?
15. Apologies if there have already been some preliminary boundaries put up somewhere but if anyone could hazard a guess at what ums 69/75 would be that would be great...

It always scales halfway inbetween the 100 UMS and 80 UMS (A) boundary, and usually rounded up if it's a decimal. I'd say A is 64/75, so A* would be 69 or 70/75. So you'll probably get 88 ish, or exactly 90.

EDIT: Does anyone know if they penalise if you don't leave the answer in its simplest form (e.g. saying it's the 4th root of 64 instead of 2 root 2) or do they accept that as the 'or equivalent' mark? I didn't recognise that in the exam and my calculator gave 2.828 (should've knew this was 2x 1.414 which is root 2...)
