Will there be a proper unofficial mark scheme posted for m1 soon?
Look at what I posted. They're all right except 1

2. That exam was extra cheeky.
3. (Original post by alexesl17)
thats correct. it is the same angle as 45 from the horizontal
nope... for bearing it was 90+14= 104
4. (Original post by Reda2)
I got 3 Ns as well, from what you have heard, is it correct?
yup

Don't think so... Arsey, who used to do almost all the rest, posted that he was told by Edexcel to stop..
8. Guy for the forces question I left my answer in vector coloumn instead of writing 2.5i+2.5j - would I still loose marks?
9. (Original post by kc006)
Because it was quite a dodgy paper I reckon they'll be lower than normal, maybe like 56 for an A ?
Or atleast I hope so.
10. hopefully C3 and C4 isnt as bad

Is it just me, or did anyone else feel that for some of the questions with a lot marks available (such as q5 and q8a), they did very little working?
Exactly, I thought I was missing out on steps man.

nope.. in the mark scheme it says accept answers if in vector coloumn form
14. For the direction question i got 45 but then I wrote down underneath that the bearing is 180-45, and that it's south west of the pulley...
15. (Original post by alexesl17)
Tension was 20.6 and Force of brick on pan was 15.5
I showed workings out for 2 values or R, I had to values of R with their own working side by side, because I was not sure, will I get the marks for the correct one or did I just f** myself up?
16. (Original post by Ollie5116)
Why did I get 0.2Ns for the impulse question??? Did anyone else?
Got0.575 i used suvat to resolved upwards or sideways and used impulse = ft
17. (Original post by jovdawesome)
omg yes.... i got 0.2 Ns and i was pretty confident about that until all my mates were like they got 3
Got 0.2 as well
18. ahh i'm happy with how i did (looking at the unofficial mark schemes)

although I messed up the impulse question (i think i read the question as force exerted on the particle rather than impulse)
19. (Original post by jovdawesome)
nope... for bearing it was 90+14= 104
He was referring to the last question, not that one
20. (Original post by avengedabbie)
did anyone get 1.6m and 66kg for the moments question? I was almost 100% sure that was right
I did aswell but apparently that isnt correct.
