# Edexcel GCSE Mathematics A Higher Paper 2016 Unofficial Markscheme Watch

1. If you have rotated anticlockwise instead of clockwise would that get you 1 mark at least but around the right centre of rotation?
What would 68/100 be grade wise?
Probably (hopefully) Just an A
3. (Original post by Nooooooooo)
3 marks for q1 I think
Definitely?

I got 72 for the Circle Theorems one, and Root3 - Root2 for the last one. All in all a very good paper, one of the easiest I've ever done, reckon I got about 90 odd marks. Max I lost 10 marks.
Circle was 69 and the last question was (3 - √6)/12. Although wrong, you didn't even rationalise the dominator of √3/√2. What are you a savage?
an A
Defo an A grade in the range of 59-70/100
6. its never been higher than 69 for an a, so i dont see why all of a sudden the grade boundaries would be 78 for an a???
Also, last year was 63 for an a so why would the grade boundary for an a suddenly jump up ten or fifteen marks?
7. Is there an unofficial mark scheme for foundation tier??
8. FES

What is this years boundaries?
none knows yet, as they are based on how well or bad everyone will do
10. (Original post by Jesnazzy)
i have no idea, i put something like T = x + 3y
Apparently its T = 5x + 20y.

wouldn't 100-25pi cancel to 4-1pi
25(4-π) maybe?
12. Estimates
A - 66-68
A* - 80-82?
What would 68/100 be grade wise?
If u get 68 in the calculator aswell u will get an A overall ! Based on last years grade boundaries u could get 63 in both and get an A, u should be fine because the calculator test is easier (in my opinion)

am I the only one for the varnish question that did 7.5 x 5 = 37.5???
omg yes i did that!!

What do you think about the reason that his class Is not suitable being that his class will not be proportionate to the population e.g. Only teenagers meaning they may buy more/less crisps than the average?
you will get the mark my maths tutor said
16. Everyone is talking about how they have just lost there A*
I literally got 38 in the paper I have just lost my c grade 😂🔫
17. Anyone here remember what Qs and Answers for Qs 8,9 and 12?
18. how many marks would you guess to get a bare minimum C on this paper
19. How were we meant to do the distribution of the box plots question? I basically filled the whole space with writing, comparing range, IQ range and median. Were we supposed to work anything out??

20. For the question about the tiles I did a completely different method that everyone I've spoke to and came to the conclusion that :
No. because she has enough to cover 37.5m^2 but needs to cover 50m^2 so she's 12.5m^2 short
DID ANYONE GET ANYTHING SIMILAR // know if I will get any marks? I was pretty confident on that question lol
