    I'm saying it helps, if you're working with fractions that you find challenging, it's nice to have it there... you don't agree?

    What did people get for the y value in the last question. It's the only place I think I've dropped a mark. I got 19/2
    Do you mean question 11? I got 1/2. I have the unofficial markscheme if anyone wants it.

    You know when you think you're really good at something and then someone decides to ask you completely irrelevant stuff about it? That was C1.

    I usually get high 60s/low 70s, but that paper was absolutely vile and probably the worst one I've ever done.

    How on earth do they get away with putting stuff in that isn't even in the textbook or on the specification?

    Who's fault is this? Michael Gove and Nicky Morgan's. DOWN WITH THE TORIES!
    Please tell me this is sarcastic :rolleyes:
