    For the question where you had to turn the two fractions into one fraction in its simplest form what did we get? I can't remember the question exactly

    Is there an unofficial mark scheme yet 😁 I thought it went so bad today so want to see how I did

    Lots of people from my school found the exam hard, so hopefully the grade boundaries will be lower than last year...

    Got 2 pi for the last question.
    For the gradient one i got -1.5 and the intercept as 0.5,
    and for the point where the two lines cross i got (3, -4)
    For the running question i got 120 metres
    The graph equation i got (x-2)^2
    I got P as 6 (cube root of 2^p = 4)
    K as -4 on the indices question
    Pocket money as 7.50
    For the cumulative frequency table i got false(?) true , false
    For the area of my triangle i got 27(?)
    Voucher A by a few pounds
    I got pretty much the same as you aside from P as 5 and True, True, False (I think)

    The first page was the reflection and translation questions followed by the drawing your own triangle bits. Uh i think the next few questions were the simple expressions and then there was the voucher A/B question?

    It probably was 6 haha! I'm a notorious idiot when it comes to maths exams. Some of my previous mistakes include 1.5+1.5=3.5 and 13-7 is 7. Sometimes I can't believe I'm predicted A*'s

    I got p as 6 aswell so if you do 2 to the power of 6 is 64 64 cube root is 4 so therefore p must be 6

    I the last question was the length of the arc, and there was a couple of surds and a solve by factorising question above the write as a single fraction question. There were also histogram, probability and vector questions

    Would it be marked according to certain values or ranges?
