    Hmm im not sure how I got 17/2 again i remember putting y=17/2 again but dunno lool I got a lot of fractions too. I found it a bit better than last year since I realised dumb mistakes I was making
    Lol yeah, this time I was being really careful... I think... well hopefully 😁 But I dunno I missed out 1 question which only worth 1 mark...

    y was 1/3 and -3/7

    Did anyone of you get 17/2 somewhere? I don't remember the question, but I think the gradient was = 17/2 or something.[/QUOTE]

    I got that!!!!

    If I hadn't ran out of time I could've easily got full marks. All of the arithmetic in that paper delayed me the chunk of time I needed to wrap up.

    It was soo bad man. Most of my answers were ridicolous with stupid ugly fractions. Usually I have at least 30mins left when I do c1 papers but this one I ran out of time 😭😭😩😩😭 but I believe in God and I put my trust with him

    Does anyone remember the marks for the last part of the uncle (arithmetic sequence) question? And how many marks for the area question?(not the whole question, just those parts)

    That is the ones I did not do.

    that was a hard paper. nice to see it was not just our school that found that ridiculously challenging. i mean from the past papers you would normally get whole rounded numbers for most of the questions so for making it so you get fractions answers really made me doubt the majority of my answers. Praying for low grade boundaries

    The biggest problem is that most of the answers (as everyone has discovered) came out as really obscure fractions. I mean what mathematical advantage would you have been over someone else if they were NICE NUMBERS?! Absolutely NONE! I mean for ****s sake Edexcel, you're not marking us for adding up whole numbers with huge improper fractions, you're marking us for all the steps and approaches that actually going into the questions that refer to the specification.

    It would have been so much EASIER if they had used nice numbers so that I could actually show off my knowledge rather than wasting huge chunks time on stuff I'm not even going to get marked on.

    k = 41/8 .... Why not just 5, thanks for being difficult
    I felt the same and can confirm 41/8 is what I got kind of got hope when subbing it in have y=1/2 as seemed a sensible number
    There seemed to be a lot of fractions though for example I think I got 44/3 for the R coordinate and 163/3 for the area question or similar fractions from what I remember

    You spoke my mind. Makes me feel like **** tbh, I usually get full ums to low 90s, but I didn't have time to even complete all the questions. So much unnecessary arithmetic that just slowed me down to hault. Like the first few questions I was going at the usual (fast) pace, then BAM fraction town.
