    I wrote 16/-rt1/25.
    How many marks will I lose for not getting -80?
    If I remember correctly it was out of 4. So it would have been a mark for working out x, a mark for working out y, possibly one for writing down 16/-0.2 and then one for the answer of -80. So my guess if you got x correct is one mark.

    This I did everything correctly. Phew it's only one mark

    I got cos theta equals -5/6 for the third last question (the one about finding cos theta from sin ( sqrt(11) / 6 )

    Integer values for x^2 - 20x + 96 < 0

    So, (x - 8)(x - 12) < 0
    Thanks

    Can people remember how many marks that one was? I think I only got to the (x-8)(x-12) stage

    Currently looking like I may get that A* distinction that has been so elusive. Looks like A/A* core maths, and if the FM calculator paper is the same difficulty, that A* distinction
    since we are kind of in the same boat, do u think that a highly selective sixthform would still accept you if you got an A for core maths and A*/A^ for fmaths??? Cause i completly screwed the core non calc paper up, and there is no chance I'll get an A* for that.

    U know for the x/y question, i got 80, would i lose a mark? and for the trig identity i didn't do negatives for both :/
    You will probably only lose 1 mark for putting 80 because all you didn't do was recognise that y<0

    and also the 3/5 trig question right? that means i would lose like 2 marks throughout the whole paper i hope.

    We literally got the same answers for everything! omg that makes me sooo happy, it means i didnt completely screw that test over.
    Good to hear! I couldn't answer the last question and one other question literally my workings were invaluable for them so hopefully I've just got an A*. I realised I made mistakes for others too so I think I've got 58 roughly.

    Same as me mate, think I have the same position as you. I also need great results for my college but I fluffed the calc paper.
