    Really? I'm the opposite - I hate his solutions! I find mistakes in them sometimes...not that helpful (although the actual mark schemes help me out).
    My teacher actually said that 'he must have no life as all he does is make maths solutions' 😂
    Oh thank God , I was speculating whether some of his answers were incorrect but I thought they must be right as he is a teacher. I thought some answers (which I thought I did correctly) were wrong

    Is it bad that I'm nervously excited for this exam? 😂 good luck everyone! I think edexcel will make the exam slightly (only marginally though!) easier because of last years mishap. If a question like Hannah's sweets comes up just think about how you would get the answer they give you; what would you have to do to the information they give you to get to the answer. Remember that if they say "prove" it is most always with algebra! Don't forget to check and go back through your answer when you've finished it to check you have answered the question asked (e.g. "Leave your answer in standard form")

    Don't freak out and you'll all do incredibly!!

    Great advice! Just remember that there must be a solution to every answer you just have to think outside the box sometimes with the problem solving questions. Good luck I'm sure you'll do great!

    When I took my second practice exam I had half an hour left XD but anyways I'm so worried about this exam but calm at the same time because I know that if I don't get the B grade I'll still have my C grade.... However will the University still accept me?... ;-;

    Hiya! You are welcome to talk about the Maths GCSE in here - the international exams are staggered by time zone and there are a couple of different papers that international students take to prevent cheating or exam sharing. So chat away! I hope the exam went well for you

    It was a good paper

    I'm confident will all the questions APART FROM THE LAST ONE!!!

    Did anyone get 3 root 2? I rationalised the denominator and used Pythagoras to work out the base of the triangle, so hopefully I'll get at least 2 marks out of 3 for that question!
