Edexcel AS/A2 Mathematics M1 - 8th June 2016 - Official Thread watch

1. Grade predictions this year?
2. (Original post by Don Pedro K.)
So I think the absolute bare minimum score I got is 56/75 (this is assuming that I don't get any method marks for the two 7 markers). Would this be a B you think?
Yeah that should be a high B

With the first question it asked for the answer as a bearing which is why you needed to add 90.
As for the second question.. I'm not sure how many marks you'll lose maybe half?
But they didn't say beating they just asked the direction? So if I mention the X axis surely I'll be marked right
Was the friction down the slope btw
4. 2014 a was 58 and full ums was like 70... Hopefully something like that
5. I'm beginning to think the only answer they'll accept for the last question is 225 as a bearing.

Saying 45 doesn't make sense. It's not specific enough. Your force could be going south east or south west.

Only giving your answer as a bearing leaves no uncertainty to the examiner
6. I wrote m=0.73 to 2sf will I still get the mark and for the bearing I wrote 135 from i/x axis and I wrote 45 degrees below x drew diagram aswell. Do you get penalised for not writing units I wrote M=42 is this right

My m1 was a disaster. I should've revised. I might get 60, so a B or even C?
lol
8. How many marks was the last question (Q8) worth in total?

in 2013 you got the mark for drawing a diagram and showing the force at an angle of 45 so i guess it'll be like that again i guess
10. Can some one remember what question 2 was especially the working out for 2b?

Alot of people are saying 59-60 for A but keep in mind it was an IAL paper (i think. It looked like it from the front) and last IAL papers were about 53-54 for A
What are you talking about? It wasn't an IAL paper...

4, 3 marks for like some pythagoras stuff and another mark for showing the direction. Reckon either you show it on a diagram or you have a bearing, i agree just saying 45 degrees from the horizontal isn't specific enough (although it should be fine with a diagram).

It was the scale and the mass. Can't remember fully but you had to use equations of motion

Ah ok, that was the pulley question wasn't it? Just trying to get it all straight in my head

Question 2 was the one about the scale-pan with a brick in it

2a) Considering the whole system:

T - 2g = 2a
T = 2g + 2a
T = 2(9.8) + 2(0.5)
T = 20.6N

b) Considering the brick:

R - 1.5g = 1.5a
R = 1.5g + 1.5a
R = 1.5(9.8) + 1.5(0.5)
R = 15.45N

Oh, i didnt read that part, and just read magnitude. So, i didnt give dirention, but i did draw a diagrap with 45 degree angle, and the reaction at it as well, will that be enough? (i doubt it)

Also, i guess most of us got physics tomorrow? aqa here

yup, dw about it too much, im sure you did fine it's in the past

What even is an IAL paper? The international papers?

Oh i guess that'd be fine. Although oads of people in my class literally just wrote 45 degrees from the horizontal then laughed cause I was the only one who got a bearing.

I initially accepted that i was wrong but upon giving it further thought, I think they messed up.
20. For F2: is it 2.5i + 2.5j
