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

1. guys what do u think the grade boundaries are?
2. I am so dumb I got £2436578 for that petrol question
I should die
3. I got 81!
4. For those who got 80.1, I want to ask if you guys rounded the values you got to 3 s.f. for every step of working out instead of leaving the number as a long decimal.
Because on the last question there were so many decimals to work with highly possible that rounding the value the calculator showed each time had affected the final answer

Usually in other questions if you round your answer because it has a lot of decimal places, you'll still get the same answer without rounding your values from the working out until the end as there are less numbers to work with.

So I feel that the fact there were a lot of decimals to work with in the last question is the reason some people are getting 80.1 and some are getting 80.4. I may be wrong but this is a possible reason..

Depending on how harshly you marked yourself, that should be an A*
