    So I won't get the marks?
    If you've reattempted it correctly, you'll get the marks. See page 6 of 2015's C4 mark scheme on marking guidelines. I assume the same procedure will be followed this year too.

    Hey for the differential equation question I showed one method for part a and b and then 5 mins before the exam finished I went back and worked it out correctly under the other working out but forgot to cross out the incorrect method.Will I still get the marks?
    Just to make you feel more at ease. As long as both methods are there and neither is crossed out, an examiner always has to mark the highest attempt with Edexcel. Some of my teachers are examiners and have always told us never to cross out any work in maths (unless we're sure it's of no use). You are allowed to make as many attempts at a question as you want. The examiner should always mark the highest marking attempt. If the examiner missed it you could always get it remarked and your mark would change. That is edexcels rule. Check the preamble on past paper mark schemes. Do not listen to the person who told you you probably won't get marks. Just thought I'd make you feel better because I know how it feels to be on the edge about this. As long as one is fully correct you will 100% get the marks.

    Probably. I only know the math functions though.
    Oh? So you did not use the "normal" LaTeX?

    I just thought you typed in latex and then exported the pictures..

    Dont worry then. It's just that I am such a LaTeX fan!

    Honestly thank you so much I do feel much better now. I was unsure which method was correct because they both looked fine. Luckily one was correct.
    Thank you x

    Guys, can anyone please estimate how many marks I will lose if I didn't differentiate 17 in the implicit differentiation question and that was my only mistake, please

    My method of trapezium rule is fine, I just mistyped the answer, I personally put do it in the form \frac{h}2(y_0 + y_n + 2\sum_1^{n-1} y_i)

    hey for the implicit differentiation question, I put =17 instead of =0 after differentiated, I only realised right at the end, so started changing everything, but couldn't change the results to partb) as I ran out of time how many marks would I lose??

    also for q8, when working out the length of the vector i got root8 and did it all correct and simplified that to 2root but may have gone on to say k=2root2 as i didnt realise k was only the number before the root!, if they see my workings ie that i got root8 and simplified it will i get two marks or lose a mark?

    Should be an A* assuming your other modules can make it up to 480 over the six modules.
