    There are people on this forum who have not yet sat this exam. Some may be asking to confirm questions and answers only to get the questions and answers for when they sit it later today.The grades will rise if you give answers on here. Do not jeopardise your grade by giving answers until tomorrow.
    No there are not - everyone sits the examination in the morning and everyone sitting this exam will have of finished it by now.

    Damn I got that standard form one VERY wrong...
    Also for the one asking about the quadratic where the -2 had changed to -6, was it not just X=2 as it was the vertex of the curve?
    And will it matter if I wrote 12/15 instead of 4/5? As it didn't specifically ask for simplest form

    Sorry for all the questions!

    I got 1cm for the last question oh well
    Also I thought the circle theorem question was an alternate angle question?

    I think the envelope question was T= 5x + 20y but I have no idea why it was 3 marks
    I think alternate segment could have been applied for the circle theorem but I didn't use it. My answer was 69 degrees. Alternate angles tend to be part of parallel lines.

    The envelope question is bugging me to. I put the same as you but I think it's wrong. Surely it cannot be worth 3 marks?

    For the last question, I got 1/4 - root 6/12 but this can be written as one fraction. So simplify 3/12 - root 6/12 = 3-root6
