if I get 69/75 in raw mark how much will I get in ums/
It all depends on the grade boundaries but your garunteed 80UMS as quite a lot of people probably made some very silly mistakes which will definately lower the boundaries from 60 odd to about 56-59.

it was (1/6W -40/3) that was right because using the fact that moment up = moment down C and A had to equal W+20, so adding C and A you got 5/6W + 1/6W + 100/3 -40/3 = W -60/3 = W-20

I can't remember how i did it exactly, but I came out with:

0.5w-40
3

Will that be acceptable?

TBH looking back the paper wasn't that hard at all. Was just tricky and weird to catch you ouyt, but obviously edexcel want people to get A's dont they?
7. that paper was quite easy numerically but the explanations questions were difficult & included me having to throw pens around the room to help me with projectiles

i hope the grade boundaries are low, but for example, in june 2007 i think it was, the boundary for an A was 66/75, and this paper was of roughly the same difficulty.
isnt an A grade always 80% overall ??
10. ^ that was high, it's raw mark 60/75 to get an a but if they lower it then that will be good

guys here's what....for the distance question i.e the value of T...it said 'it travels at a constant velocity for T seconds' and not 'upto T seconds'.....so you gotta do like 75-(T+5) for the last triangle....at least that's what i think....this way you get 50 secs and not 55....rest all was ok and i think i rememberr my answers to majority of the questions....lemme know if anyone is interested
Hey ye, it was (T+5) I also got 50, and my classmates also got 50 !
12. yep I got the same answr in the exam, diff. working but its the same
