    For Question 19(b), would I get a mark for graphing x+y = 6?
    And getting an answer that's dependent on my incorrect answer to part(a)?

    For the solving equations graphically the last part it said to just find x value
    I wrote down both x values and the y values.
    Do you think they will deduct points off me

    The calculator test is almost always harder so I guess I'll just have to revise really ****in' hard. Thanks for the answer btw.

    No, it does't work like that.
    i cancelled it down to 1-√6 / 4 (divided the three and 12 by 3)... Would that work..? The annoying thing is that i wrote the right answer (3-√6 /12) above it, but for some stupid reason i thought that i could simplify it further.. think I'll still get the mark for writing the correct answer even though my final answer was incorrect?

    What grade is 76 - 80 marks?
    I got the same mark between that range, hopefully for the sake of us two that will have a moderately of strong chance of helping us get an A* overall. You will probably need 86 in the calculater paper to secure an A*, just in case they do not lower the grade boundaries. But good luck mate!

    Hi I think you've made a big mistake some kids are doing maths GCSE tommorow I think you need to take this down
    This is for the Edexcel only Maths GCSEs, you must be doing AQA or WJEC, Edexcel would never let open a paper one day and use the same one next day as it would be very unfair for everyone as the next day students could cheat and get higher marks. All exam boards uses different questions and different style of it. I assure you that none of the answer/questions on here will be on the tomorrow maths GCSEs paper. Maybe you've gotten the exam board messed up because Edexcel isn't stupid enough to repeat the paper, hope your students get the marks they want

    For the estimating one I did 900 divided by 18 (rather than rounding 18.7 to 20) and got 50 days. Would I still get the marks do you think??
