Do they not scan HB pencils?
They do lol. It says so on the front page

Only an idiot draws diagrams in pen anyway

I got a 65 as well, not sure if it's right as everyone seems to have got 75
Nah i am pretty sure now its 65. 75 was the second smallest pair, and for the 65 the path was tricky, so i think the others just didnt see it.(at least i hope so)

For the optimal line, do you strictly have to use simutaneous equations could you have simply took the points graphically where they intersected? Help.
It depends how hard you pressed. If it was hard, it should scan. If not it might show up faded(in which case your examiner could pull your paper and mark it, or just be lazy and give you 0) or if you drew it lightly it won't show up. My maths teacher is a team leader for d1 papers answer asked this Q one time.

For the optimal line where you had to find the point. Do you have to necessarily use simutaneous equs? Couldnt you graphically deduce the points?

It was a weird decimal. Something like 356/11 and I forgot the y value. around 1.51 I think
10. you know on question 2 it said to draw an activity with three dummies, i drew one of the dummies with a solid line by accident (even though i did it in pencil first) then i put a dashes right next to it and underneath i wrote down where i put the dummies.

will i still loose marks for this?
11. What did people get for their objective line?

I used a b2 pencil will that matter?
15. Does anyone remember how many marks each question was worth?

Honestly don't know. The front page said B and HB though. You'll have to check on edexcels page if they can scan any others
17. You got the paper
18. Will I be penalised for not numbering the nodes (q2)?
