# Edexcel GCSE Mathematics A Higher Paper 2016 Unofficial Markscheme

1. how did people do the second construction question? the one where it had point P and you needed to make the perpendicular bisect of it and the line or whatever

(Original post by MrJamerJamer)
I remember it being clockwise aswell.
the first part of the question was reflection, and the second part was rotating anticlockwise.

Nah you'll lose a mark because 100-25pi isn't equivalent to 25 - 5pi. You took the correct answer and turned it into an incorrect one D:
Oh thanks but lol I meant 42 for the estimation question, would that still be full marks?

3. If it's (roughly) 30-33 is for a C I've definitely failed I did so badly on this exam...
4. did anyone else get 37.5cm for the varnish question? as it was not enough varnish cos she needs 50cm^2 but has 37.5cm^2

A* ~ 78/100
A ~ 63/100
B ~ 48/100

Anyone know what grade 74 might be?
Could be an A+ ???
8. What was the answer to number 12?
9. What will the grade boundaries be like
10. I got 750 for the first one too. 69 degrees for the circle question and for the circle inside the square i got 100-25pie

I put that but im not sure if it will be accepted, probably not )':.
Fingers crossed then. They usually accept unsimplified answers if its not stated that they have to be simplified. Either way its still an exact value which was the idea of the question.

Yea, that's really all you needed to do. Lots of other ways to do it as well though.
13. didn't question 18 ask for a mixed number

I think I got around 57-58 marks what would that be roughly? and do you think that the grade boundaries will be lower because people have found this hard?
not many people found it that hard mate, it was a pretty average paper so boundaries will probs be slightly higher than 80 A* 70A 60B etc

A* ~ 78/100
A ~ 63/100
B ~ 48/100
C ~ 33/100
i'd say they'll be higher than that

yep

Im sure it was 70 m2 for the whole area of that shape
You did 6*10 + 2(2.5*2), but you didn't take into account that the entire height was 6M, so you need to take away 2m from the rectangles height
19. I got 750 for the first one too. 69 degrees for the circle question and for the circle inside the square i got 100-25pi

It could be? These are just rough estimations
