    If it didn't ask for simplest form than you won't drop marks
    (Original post by NiamhM1801)
    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!

    Was the percentage of rent 36%?
    Yeah, it was. Cuz 20% of 30% is 6%. Add that to 30% to get 36%

    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
    v
    Same I was clueless to why it was three marks..
    I also got T= 5x+20y

    I factorised it just in case in my working out

    People in other regions of the World have not sat this exam yet, hence my comments
    All students are taking the exam at the same time around the world so it's fine to discuss it now..

    You may have read MrM's post but that advice does not apply for this exam.

    i got this too, but then i was talking to people after the exam and apparently it wasn't a right angled triangle? so that could be wrong?
    It definitely gave the little square in the corner so it must be a right angled triangle. Some angles would have been impossible to work out with using the sin or cosine rule and as this was not a calculator paper it must be a right angled triangle.
