# Edexcel GCSE Mathematics A Higher Paper 2016 Unofficial Markscheme Watch

1. (Original post by HateOCR)
Can you please comment or reply to me and tell me what you got roughly? I got 75 out of 100
94/100

worst case scenario 91/100

Had a massive brain fart with question 23 ;/
2. 11 for the art gallery
3. I failed that exam so badly

Yes you may permission granted thanks for asking first.
No worries and thank you!
5. If I remember correctly question 9 was something like find a formula for the total envelops T in terms of x and y. I got something like 5x+20y.
6. (Original post by Jesnazzy)
I think i put T = x + 4y, which is the simplified form of 5x + 20y. Is that wrong?
If you wrote T= 5x + 20y in your working and then showing that u simplified it you might get 1 mark but after seeing a full unofficial mark scheme it looks like T= 5x + 20y will get u full marks.
7. Anyone got the foundation paper questions?

8. (Original post by 34908seikj)
Yes, as the fraction is in it's simplest form.
Hip-pip Hooray!

Very helpful! But question 2 part b is 1 too high... And I believe I got 99 (I don't dare say 100)
10. I simplified 100-25pii to 25-5pi is that still full marks??
11. (Original post by bethanyjx)
has everyone seen the full mark scheme yet? it's up with scanned photos of the questions & method too so all this debating can stop Hah
Nice one. Where is this please?
12. can you explain question 8
13. (Original post by archiiii)
Did not get the last step after 2/5=36 what happened can u slove it step by step
40% of the workers are male, so 40% = 36 teachers
therefore 10% = 9 workers
100% = 90 workers
14. For the graph one, I put both x and y values. Will I still get the marks???

Doesn't really matter though, it's unofficial if you turned it 90 degrees anti-clockwise to way for you to get that question wrong, well, unless you're him.

T= 5x + 20y, your right.

can you explain question 8
The probability of getting L is 16/80 which can be simplified down to 1/5 or 0.2

300 x 0.2 = 60.
18. I counted up all my marks on a worked through paper and I got 85 (if I was unsure of my answer I counted it as 0). I need an A* or I will have to do it next year (taking it a year early). Do you think this will be enough for an A* if I do similarly well in the calc?

Is it okay that i wrote 100TT cm^2 - TT25 cm^2 instead of 100TT cm^2 -25 TTcm^2
Why did you put 100π?

I'm fairly sure 85 will be an A* in that exam considering last year's grade boundary was 78.
