# UNOFFICIAL MARKSCHEME Edexcel Maths Calculator paper 09/06/2016 watch

1. (Original post by Macauley Ware)
What would i get out of 6 for the last one if i only got to 40.0 degrees.
I got 39.9 but apparently (according to unofficial mark scheme) it's not correct. I'm trying to find out how many marks I would have got as well. I revoking we would get method marks.

2. I messed up pretty hard, worst case scenario I'll get 177/200. Think that'll be enough for an A*?

4. I thought it went well overall, few stupid mistakes I'm picking up on now

Will 140 be the highest it can be or is it going to be 140 ? Thanks. I just hope I get an A. I asked my friend and he said no. Why the **** can I not get a straight answer ?

Yeah an A in definitely not going to be above 135. The highest it's been these last few years is 133

6. thanks for that
i appreciate it
i feel stupid because i made the dumbest mistakes
i cry
7. Can someone please tell me what 97/200 would be?
8. (Original post by erodedsoul)
That should definitely be an A*

I'm not sure about that, I was looking at some past paper grade boundaries and the majority seem to be around 165 for an A*.

If I get unlucky and get 158 it could very well only be an A.
9. I think I've got 177-180 overall will this be a a star ?
10. Where does everyone think the A* boundary will be ?

For the trial and improvement one my few ids were saying they got 3.7 but I got 3.8 and I was 100% sure that was right?

When you did 3.75 the answer was too low, so you round it up because the solution must be closer to the 3.8.

Thank you so much. I love you ( if you're right ) I've worked my balls off and I'm really hoping for an A.

19. For Q2, the probability Q, if I left it as 9/20 would I be penalised?
20. (Original post by Purpleunicorn197)
Hi I'm going to start and unofficial markscheme so add your answers
Reps are not necessary but would be appreciated

7. Trial and error. x^3-5x=34 with a number between 3 and 4
3.8
X3-5x=34.
Assuming X=3.7 would give an answer of 32.153, its difference from 34 being 1.847. However, assuming X=3.8 would yield an answer of 35.872, its difference from 34 being 1.872. Since the difference between 34 and the value of X as being 3.7 is smaller than the value at 3.8, X=3.7.
Hope this helps.
