    An email from the man at Edexcel Maths:

    "To save you asking (and me having to answer), mark schemes for all papers will be made available on Tuesday, 23 July 2013 and results for GCE examinations will be released on Thursday, 15 August 2013"

    In January they were on the Edexcel website on 25th February.

    The grade boundaries don't come out until the day before the results.

    For a genuine misread deduct ONLY one mark. If you misread you lose the first answer mark but all other Answer marks are considered follow through (this only applies if you read the number in a question wrong, if you do something in the method wrong youll still lose most of it)
    It wasn't a genuine misread though. For example, the question about rough inclined plane. Instead of 30 and alpha degrees, I considered both alpha by a mistake..
    Would I get 0/8?

    I sat M1 in January but by looking at this paper and the reactions of some friends it does look harder i must say. It was 64 for an A in Jan but reckon this paper will be more around 60.

    You'll probably get most of the method marks if you did it in the right way

    Thanks for the reply! And hope u did good as well.

    EDIT; i like all the maths modules .. but i tend to make errors in exam .... even if it is a really easy paper (in this case i would say easy paper .. standard) .. I just don't know how to avoid it.
    Spend time going through every single question bit by bit again. Not just browsing through, do a real review and you'll find lots of mistakes which after easily fixing, you'll get the grade you deserved.

    If you're certain you got everything else right then you'll probably lose out on 3-4 marks max so yeah around 90ums or maybe even 100 if it's low boundaries.

    This paper is going to be the reason I don't get an A in Maths. And because of this I won't get into a good uni. Because of this I'll be doing a mediocre job. Because of this my standard of living will go down. Because of this I will die lonely.

    Exactly what I did, If they do allow ecf/ft marks then it should be about 8 marks lost. You will get all m1 but no A1 marks I think.
    Thanks buddy, in the exam, it seemed like 8 marks was around what i was gonna lose.

    I think 61-58 will be for an A(80 ums) because according to all of the threads that i read on xtreme papers and here most found it difficult but there is always exceptions and taking arsey opinion in consideration I think it is between that range
