    Don't u do 6/60 x 5/59
    Which is 1/118
    Thank you so much for posting this, I did 6/60 x 5/59 as well as was freaking out that others got 0.1. Guess it shows that I shouldn't just believe what others say is correct

    Might get a cheeky mark then 😒

    Aiming for an A* but I think I've blew that unless the grade boundaries go down to what they were in 2012 (159 A*) if they are like they were last year (169) I'm screwed

    This is why it was badly worded! Like anything >120 would be the point where they overtake, so idk why they didn't just ask for the point where they met. Bloody OCR
    69? oh dear

    Generally felt this exam was much harder than the 2015 one though. I came out of that confident and got a good mark, but this one was definitely not as good! What did you guys think of it compared to the 2015 paper?

    I did the 2015 paper and got 89 on Non Calc and 87 on Calc 2015 so much easier everyone pray for low grade boundaries

    Don't know who your teacher is but I don't think he knows what he is on about or she -- 115 for a C would create national uproar that is impossible it was 69 for a C last year -- an increase like that would be impossible

    I got similar marks to you, average an a* overall in the mock. General feel at my school was that this exam was much harder - please let there be low boundaries, I really want an A!

    For the one about the two people running, could I still get 3 out of the 4 marks even though I came to the wrong answer? (I got 124 if anyone's wondering). My method was weird which is why I'm worried - I just wrote out the 3 times table up to 124 (I know 124 isn't actually in it, I must have made a mistake), and then wrote out 4 times table offset by 10 places. I really hope they credit weird methods because I would of got the right answer if I wasn't a pleb who couldn't add 3 correctly.

    I got 124 as well! I think I did the same method as you. I think we will get some method marks, maybe 2 out of 4? But what I'm hoping is that they give a range for the answers, as it was when the girl overtook the boy, if that makes any sense? I am praying for method marks here!
