    Any guesses on the grade boundaries for this paper? thanks. I know no one will know for sure but an estimate would be great, thanks

    Hi, could i get some help on Question 18, what did that involve again? Thanks
    Mixed numbers

    A) 1 1/5 * 2 1/3

    B) 2 7/15 - 1 2/3

    Aw! Yeah I wished I didn't do decimals that way I would have got it right but oh well hopefully we'll get one mark!
    Do you get a mark for putting
    3.5 x 10^?
    --------------
    5 x 10^?
    I put = X 10^8
    I knew the x 10 bit but didn't know what was the first number. I tried working it out on the side of the page..
    0.5
    0.5
    0.5
    0.5
    0.5
    ----
    2.5
    Then tried putting extra one in for all to see if it add up to 3.5 and it went on for ages...😐 Gave up after 10 minutes, luckily I had extra time so I finished others, couldn't do the last 3 questions and some questions so I left some working outs to hopefully earn at least 1 or 2 marks.
    All together I think I got 49 to 53 marks. Hopefully I'll doreally good on on the calculator paper and boost to maybe a A or a B

    Also for one of the midpoint co-ordinates for one of the questions I have put the midpoint of the y being 4.75. Is it correct?

    That doesn't sound right. Y = -2

    does anyone think that the calc will be just as hard or d you think that they will make it harder than the non calc?

    I got 68 out of 100. What grade would that be? And could I possibly get an A* with both papers combined?

    I believed the midpoint equation would be y1+y2/2 which is how you would work out the midpoint. I cant remember the figures, but i applied that knowledge to it. And also it cant have been a whole number as one of the co-ordinates of the y was a decimal and the other was a whole integer.

    Would need a very high grade on calc, it's possible .

    68/100 is most probably an A, but a low one. To get an A*, you would need about 95+ on the second paper unless the grade boundaries are extremely low. Good luck

    Is the calc meant to be harder?

    well that's what the unofficial mark scheme from the teacher has is at. I can't remember what I put down for it now. You might be right though

    The coordinates of P are 5,7 and M is 1,2.5


    So Qx = 5+x/2 = 1

    5+x = 2
    x=-3


    Qy = 7+y/2 = 2.5
    7+y = 5
    y = -2

    Therefore the coordinates of Q are -3, -2
