    Hey guys i'd really appreciate it if someone could help me, I got around 63 for c1 and 60-62 for c2. How many marks would I need in s1 to overall an A?
    Depends on the grade boundaries, of course, and how others did, but I would say aim for 72-75. That way, even if you do get some wrong, you'll still be on par for an A.

    Really? That's a bit high I was thinking hitting just over 62, taking account of last years boundary by reducing an A to be 62 in c1 and keeping the same boundary for c2 as well as s1 as it stays consistent. That would give me 80 ums for c1, around 79 for c2 which totals 159. To achieve an A I would need 81+ ums. So I was thinking hitting 62 would be enough but idk now

    Maybe, but why take the chance and aim lower? If statistics turns out to be an easy paper for many then grade boundaries will be higher, so you'd have to do better. realistically, the maximum you'd have to get in the worst possible situation is around 68, but why not aim for 70-75?

    Let's say according to last years ....
    if you got an 63 C1 and let's go with the worst case scenario of 60 then you would need a minimum of 61 marks in S1 to get an overall A
    Hope this helped

    Pretty good, I'm quite confident for any pure Maths paper. Mechanics is my problem
    I know how you feel, mechanics is next week

    Okay so I know it been over a week since c2 but on my paper for one or maybe two questions I may have had a lot of working with different answers but my correct answer was the last answer I had got, I think I double ruled it but I didn't cross the incorrect working out or answers before it, would I lose all the mark?????

    All maths mark schemes instruct them to mark all attempts not crossed out and give you the highest mark

    The integration question ...
    there was an area above the x axis and below ... so you work them out separately doing the integration shiz and then one would come out as a negative but you can't have a negative area .... so then you turn it positive and add it to the other area you obtained.
    You would not lose all marks ... but you would lose a few ...
    you get marks for attempting integration ....
    the way I'd put it is you get the first two method marks in subbing in your x values into the integrated equation.... then the next two marks would be doing the next two x values into the equation then the last A1 mark would be adding them to get an overall answer
    Hope this helped

    Also for your triangle ... I don't think it is needed in the question ... but for that one use of it does not take away all the marks .... if you did what I mentioned above then you would gain some method marks
