    Ah, I lost some silly marks which i am upset about. Usually for past papers i get 100% but on this paper I got 95 which was a bit of an under- performance, gutted that i couldn't get full marks. But the main thing is I will hopefully get an A*!

    Hope everyone else did amazing!!!

    I did 145/1000 X 1.80 and got 0.261. How many marks out of 3 would be lost?

    Sorry, for Q6 you had to do 145/100 x 1.8
    Since you had the correct method of multiplying by 1.8 and using 145 it should be clear to the examiner that you understood an increase of 45%.
    You may be forgiven on the basis you made an error of the extra 0 on 100.
    You will only get a maximum of 1 mark out of 3

    Since its Edexcel they are the most lenient board, (of course being an overview of all the examiners), they will award markings for the smallest but yet significant of workings/method!

    Looks like for question 11 on that paper they forgot to add the total value of the car park?

    So it's possible I could get 2 out of 3 marks?

    No, unfortunately that mistake can only be justifiable from one perspective, in my opinion that will be too optimistic.
    I know, you know that it was a silly mistake because if its add 45% you are supposed to do 145/100 not "1000", but don't be upset, the grade boundaries will be lower than the standard

    Okay, and also the last question, how many marks out of 6 for working out one angle=40.0?

    I am so glad I counted between 139-150 on both papers

    Wow, you did pretty well overall, that will definitely get you the grade A!

    Now, for Question 6 I have also obtained that angle, that is the only question I have lost marks in the Calculator paper. Again me and you will get 2-3 marks for that question. I know what you did, you must of used the area of the triangle, 1/2ab x sin(c) and obtained 40 degrees using the information on the question provided.

    Firstly the initiative of manipulating with the formula will get you 1 mark, another 1 mark will be given for getting 40 by rearranging the formula. the 3rd mark will be given for displaying the correct use of 40 degrees later on.

    Okay fair enough, I don't know why I read as ABC instead of BAC

    It's fine it happens, you can't look back on that now, neither can I!

    Regardless, well done for getting many marks so far, I have confidence you will get an A as they are only minor mistakes.
    Good luck mate!!
