    The general consensus is that 105 mins was correct. You had to take 30 off as it asked how much longer.

    Well that is good then. I wrote 3 different answers, then did "innie meenie mini mo" (not entirely sure how to spell that!) and landed on 105 and wrote that

    What do people think the grade boundaries will be like? The march paper was 168/200 for an A* but it was apparently much easier. Would it be feasible to guess 162-3/200 for an A* this time?
    I'm sure the grade boundaries don't go down , they increase or either they stay the same?

    On the maths watch list, 3rd from the bottom it says, "Equations of circles" what does that mean?
     X^2 + Y^2 = R^2

    This is for a centre  (0,0) , but you also need to know what happens to the equation when the centre changes, for example if the centre is now  (3,4) , with the same circle the equation becomes:

     (x-3)^2 + (y-4)^2 = R^2

    The Second Equation, is bridging onto AS-Level, and I've never seen it in a texbook :P

    I doubt we need to know it, only for circles about the origin!

    Can someone please help me work this out?

    write 2x/2x-3 - 7/[x(2x-3) as a single fraction in its simplest form.

    If you could give me the steps on how you did that would be very much appreciated!

    128 is my prediction - it was easier than November 2012, a bit harder than March 2013 so that's bang in the middle.

    Subtract what you think you got by 130 and go for that number to ensure you get an A.

    Yeah, I try saying that to myself but I feel reassured having a target - same goes with some others too.
