    also when you have an objective line such as -x + 2y for example, how do you draw this on the graph because you can't draw it on the negative axis as they never include it, so how do you make it positive?

    You can just imagine the y axis extends down, it's the gradient that's important anyway so if it's P=-X +2y you'd plot (0,-1) (2,0) so the gradient of that line would be 1/2 wouldn't it, so you could plot a positive X and Y value that has the gradient of a half, easiest way is to either extend the y axis down or just imagine it's there because you'll more than likely be able to guess which point your objective line will hit first/last

    Bit late now lol but kruskals or prims, dijkstras, Chinese postman, travelling salesman with your upper and lower bound, linear programming with your inequalities, bit of graph theory, maybe a little one on sorts and an algorithm one, legit the whole of the spec comes up

    They don't differ much so you'll be fine, I've done probably about 16 and they just get really repetitive, just have to know the little things that pick you up marks like "why is this an upper bound" being because it's a tour that can be improved upon, stuff like that but timings fine, just make sure there's no silly mistakes from adding up wrong and it should be an easy A, should but knowing AQA this year it won't be

    I just did 2014 paper and nothing on algorithm or sorts, seems kind of odd. Algorithm, sorts and matchings are probably the least likely to come up, I'd guess? (Shame 'cause they're easy :P )
    I'm still guessing algebra in a Dijkstras or Nearest neighbour, and probably a heavy near the end question on graph theory.

    Has complete bipartite and/or planar graphs come up at all? I don't remember seeing it at all in past papers... so it'll probably come up now.

    yeah it's just those little things I'm not sure on, hoping this exam will take the fall for the core 3 and 4 disaster

    Fortunately the grade boundaries are going to drop a lot so it'll be fine you won't have done as bad as you think, anyway good luck for tomorrow

    Did anyone else get P=£515 for the last question? I think I got X=21 and y=10, which gave £515

    I got profit 520? I used x=24 and y=8.

    My lower = upper bound, 62 (the other upper bound I had was 67).

    Prim's matrix was 36.

    For Chinese postman I had 22, 32 and 42.
