Edexcel GCSE Mathematics A Higher Paper 2016 Unofficial Markscheme Watch

1. I got 1-√6 over 4 for the last question.

I wrote 3-√6 over 12 above it, but for some stupid reason, thought i could simplify further so i divided the 3 and 12 by 3 and wrote that as my final answer Think the marker will still give me the mark, considering i still WROTE the correct answer in the workings section or no?

i got that too. how many marks was that? will i get at least a mark?
3. question 16 i got 7x10 to the 2??? how do you get 7 x 10 to the 8?

oh i stupidly realised that when subtracting the powers i didn't take into account that it is essentially 10 to the 6 --3 meaning it gets added
4. Unofficial mark scheme for maths please Foundation today
5. Really?? I remember a past paper (2012) I think & it was 62 for a C. Are you sure 67 is an A? It seems like quite low for an A.

U see the triangle and the shaded area?

the two long sides were equal and were both root 2 over 2.
the shorter sides was smaller and was root 3 over 3.
we then had to times root 2 over 2 by itself then divide by 2, then do the same but with root 2 over 2 x root 3 over 3 then divide that by 2.
Finally had to minus the larger area by the smaller to get the smaller one.

7. For question 9, the answer was
T = 5x + 20y

but I wrote: T = 5(x+4y). will I still get the mark?

If you had 100/25pi you MIGHT get an extra mark for the 25pi, idk though.
Do u think I would get a mark for putting 100-25PIE all over 4 i put stupidly as I assumed it was the same as a past question

Yes, as its equivalent to 5x+20y

i got that too. how many marks was that? will i get at least a mark?
its because when you subtract a negative power it becomes positive.... possibly one mark, i made the same mistake

How many marks did you get altogether?
Some of the questions don't have marks so I cannot say?

62 is normally a high B. My teacher reckons it's 65 for an A on this paper
14. Being an idiot when I got 100-25pi, I divided everything by 5 to 'simplify' but that was quite wrong! Only a mark lost though
15. For question 5, I out 45 first then changed it to 50, would answer 50 days still get full marks?

They mean on the one paper so like , about 31 would have been a C on each paper
