    Hi, do you reckon I'll get some marks for writing 75pi instead of 100-25pi??

    no.

    Edit:

    Depends, did you identify it was originally 100-25pi? If so you'd get 1 mark for method.

    What would i get if i worked it all out

    Wrote 25 pi - 100 cm somewhere but wrote it the other way round by accident.

    Alternative solution for question 22 would be to square root both sides.
    Leading to x=\pm 2(x-3) which gives the two solutions.

    How many makes are in that question? if it's 3, you might get 1 for getting the area of square and circle.

    I'm pretty sure for one of the questions is 54 teachers, firstly you have multiplied 18 by 2 which is not 90. However that is the wrong method as you will need to multiply 18 by 3 which is 54.All in all this maths paper was harder than all the recent past papers, hopefully low grade boundaries as many people struggled. Although I believe I found this paper ok and looking to get an A* but I'm not over confident

    He multiplied 3 by 18 which does = 54. Look at the teachers mark scheme again. He was right.

    here's the solution to the last question.
    Thanks yeah I know where I went wrong now if I didn't get the final answer but wrote: 1/2 - {6/12 du think i'd still get 2 marks? because I stupidly subtracted it from 1/2 not 1/4...

    Hi guys,

    If we did the right working out, but wrote the wrong answers or did attempt the question and got wrong answers- would we get some marks?

    question 12 - could I have factorised? I said 5(20-5pi) I believe?
    I'm uncertain about the factorising of this question, sorry.
