    Cheers. Wasn't it 2x≥y though?
    Nah cause it said X had to be at least twice at large as y

    The question said "x is atleast twice as many as y" which I'm sure is x ≥ 2y. So if for example y is 50 then x is 100, which is twice as many.

    ahhhh i see thx.

    so i plotted 2x>y but got the correct subsequent x and y values (24 and 8) and correct profit

    how many marks do u think I dropped?
    M1 for wrong line
    A1 for wrong feasible region?

    Wrong line, Wrong FR, Wrong Inequality (first part of Q) so probably 3

    I'm looking at the June 2015 paper and from the looks of it you probably lost only 2 (B1) marks, which is fine.

    EDIT oh yeah another for getting the inequality wrong for the question before lol
    Ok thanks guys. Think im sitting on 65/75 then

    C3 really, really, really ****ed me up so i had my tryhard pants but what can you do.

    I did and someone else earlier in the thread did but apparently it's wrong, should've been £520 or something.


    I assume it will carry ft marks though for reading the wrong points...maybe...I didn't look at Decision mark schemes a lot before the exam

    I got £505 too, the last section was 3 marks so we should pick up atleast 1 ft mark.

    That's not too bad then. I did a rough count up assuming I'd got that wrong and I had about 61/62...but I was incredibly harsh on myself so that's a worst case scenario.

    I really need an A but after how abysmal core 3 was I highly doubt it.

    Core 3 will be low dw Literally no-one I asked found it easy and twitter was going mental. 60 was an A last year so you should safely by around an A boundary, even if it goes up by 1 or two marks which it most likely will.

    The question said "x is atleast twice as many as y" which I'm sure is x ≥ 2y. So if for example y is 50 then x is 100, which is twice as many.
    If I put 2x>y and then did my profit thing right from my line, do you reckon I get error carried forward?

    ffs I hope so I reckon I got about 40 in core 3! It was horrid.
    I think the highest for an A in D1 was maybe the 64 mark? so even if they do go higher than 1 or 2 marks it's still a B...I hope
