# UNOFFICIAL MARKSCHEME Edexcel Maths Calculator paper 09/06/2016 Watch

1. Does anyone remember how many marks there were available for the interest question?...i fully failed that one.
2. Ok thank you!

The other exam went quite well, yeah. Perhaps there's still a chance of an A. I've been stuck at a B for a couple of years now - I stopped paying attention and messed around in class in year 9 so got put into second set for year 10.
Back into top set for year 11 and I've worked as hard as I can so HOPEFULLY it'll pay off and I'll get the A grade I was hoping for.

If so, I've gone from the school questioning if I'll even pass it, to getting a fantastic grade.
Fingers crossed.

How did everybody else do?
Well... I think hard work always pays off, soo I'm sure you've got your well deserved A 👏🏾👏🏾

Reps are not necessary but would be appreciated

It would be really useful if you could remember the question numbers
1. Order numbers correctly and include a key
b) 9/20=
0.45
2a. 5a*2b*3c =
30abc
b. Factorise fully 3y +6 =
3(y+2)
c. Expand x(x-3)=
x^2-3x
3.
x=9.25
4. Smallest packet was best value for money because it was cheapest per bag of crisps
5. 4 times as many red than green: There were 0.4 blue and 0.15 yellow.
0.4+0.15+4x+x=1
0.55+5x=1
5x=0.45
x=0.09
4x=0.36
Green- 0.09 Red- 0.36
6a. 20.3
b. 68.04kg
c. 2.61m
7. 3.8
8a. 4:3
b. 480 pixels
9.x= 124 degrees
10. 7.92
11.£42.29
12. x=144 degrees
13.
-2 -1 0 1 2
-1 3 1 -1 3

16. 128g
b.11g
17. 30.1
18. 10a^5b^4
b. y= 5p^2-x
19.11 males
20. x= 0.29 or x= -2.29
21. 29.25
22. F.d- 1.6, 3.2, 2.4, 1.8, 0.3
23.28.9

awh same story here tbh i just want a bloody A
6. (Original post by Anmol_.)
Just 80 more to stay safe
Ok thanks!

If they want is to 1 dp then you have to test halfway between the two 1dp values (so 3.75) to know whether 3.8 is closer or 3.7 so you would have lost at least 1 mark
Ah, ive been a silly sausage. Oops.
8. (Original post by niichola.)
Question 15 did not equal to £7766.22
Because 1st year depreciated by 23%
so 0.77 x 15000 = £11550
then after the 1st year it was 18%
so 0.82 x 11550 = £9471
therefore no it was not more than half
You had to times by 0.23 and then by 0.18 for the following two answers. I got what they are saying and so did the majority of year.
9. Mr kibria posted the paper yet?
10. (Original post by 9091student)
that is such a pisstake, what do you think you got out of 100?
Aha well I'm waiting for the worked solutions, but maybe in the 90s? Maths is my strongest subject :3 unlike English... Which I fail at xD
11. (Original post by Iwilson)
I think i got around 90 on the first paper and i cant really remember most of my answers for this paper. What do you think i need to get an A*?
Last year total score was 155 for an A* (http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...Boundaries.pdf), 2014 was 164 for an A* (http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...Boundaries.pdf).

It'll be somewhere around that mark, around the 150-170 mark. Of course, that's vague given nobody really knows but I've got a feeling grade boundaries will be on the high side this year as most people are saying they found the papers relatively easy.

All the best.
12. (Original post by TheNerdxP)
That's what I was thinking, but isn't it true that the grade boundaries could be high? I really want an A and I think I got 72 on the non-calculator paper so how much do you think I would need on this one?

Posted from TSR Mobile
Judging from previous papers' grade boundaries, I'd say you'd need a minimum of 66/67 marks to secure an A
13. (Original post by FailedDefo)
Ah kk thanks hope the boundary is lower due to the non calculator paper that was a bit hard tbh xD
You should be alright

na allow it howwwwww?
Density was 8g/cm^3
The wheelbarrow/trolley can only carry 250kg
But your density is still in grams so you have to divide the mass of the metal bar by 1000

Yeah, it'll help me to be more confident in myself if I have that A grade. I'm not doing A levels just because it's not the path that'll get me the qualification that I need but I'd still like an A grade. Also my Dad's pushing for it, so hopefully.

On the other hand, my mum never passed her maths, so ya know...

After trying 3.7 and 3.8, you needed to try 3.75. 3.75 was too small, so the number was between 3.75 and 3.8, meaning it was closer to 3.8 than 3.7.
Would you have had to try 3.75? I didn't try it, I just tried 3.6, 3.7 and 3.8 and put 3.8 as my final answer because it says to 1 dp
18. Will there be a unofficial mark scheme like the one for the first paper? With the question, answer and number of marks.
19. (Original post by Codywhear)
Surely the trial improvement was 3.7? I think i worked out the distance from 34 and I think 3.7 was closer? Can't remember though
The equation was x^3 - 5x = 34 (I think)

3.75^3 = 52.734375

-5 x 3.75 = -18.75

52.734375 - 18.75 = 33.984375

So the answer is less than 34 but it's at 3.75 already so no matter what the answer is it's going to be slightly more than 3.75 which will automatically be rounded to 3.8

Hehe I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too!! Your 6th form/college must be strict if you have to get an A... Usually it's a B??
