Is the calc meant to be harder?
No but I found the non-calc to be pretty easy, so I expect the calc to be harder.

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
... You know he isn't getting that.

Mixed numbers

A) 1 1/5 * 2 1/3

B) 2 7/15 - 1 2/3
Would you get any marks for 2 12/15 instead of 2 4/5?
Thank you

My solution to the last question:

Thats what they usually do, they make it harder because you have the calculator to help you

Thank you
You *should* get full marks unless the question explicitly asked for it to be simplified fully. In which case you would only drop 1 mark maximum.

Thats just rude. If I try I will.

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
Actually now acknowledging the question it must be 4.75 as the y co-ordinate for the midpoint because according to the rule of y1+y2/2 which we learn in further maths gcse. 2.5+7 = 9.5
Then you will need to divide 9.5 by 2 to get the midpoint. So it is 4.75 as the y co-ordinate

I don't think so, however I could be wrong.
15. The angie question is 50 cm squared as you spilt the two squares which are five 2 take off 6 is 4 then times ten is 40 surely ?

2 12/15 is equvilent to 2 4/5 so I think you would unless it said to express in simplest forms

That doesn't make sense you have the mid point and point P. P is given as (5,7) the midpoint is (1,2.5) therefore the Q y coordinate must be <2.5

What I did was correct.
18. I thought the paper was alright, I made a lot of silly little mistakes. I think that i got 77-82 marks. How much would i need on paper two to get an A*

Also, i know that it's not possible to predict the grade boundaries until paper two (which i believe is going to be much more difficult) but how high or low do you think they will be.

Thank you and Good luck. x

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
You should be fine! Don't worry I just made that silly mistake and my wording might have been a bit off so I may have lost some marks on those
