# OCR GCSE Maths Unit C 13th June Watch

1. So how did everyone find it?

I thought it wasn't too bad. I was expecting to see questions about sin/cosine graphs but ,luckily, it didn't come up.

What did people get for the final question? ( the algebraic fraction question)

It was great
What was the algebraic fraction question again?
Oh, and how long did it take you to finish the paper?
3. Can someone help me i'm a bit confused with how many marks i needed in this unit c exam for an A overall:
I got:
80 UMS in unit A
84 UMS in unit B
4. i think i put for the last one x squared - 5 over x squared + 6

I think it was...

x+5/x-2 minus x/x-3

had to explain in a fraction

On the specification, it says that for an A you need 320 UMS out of 400 ums. So in unit c you need 156 or more

would 156 UMS be 78/100??

Unit C is out of 200 UMS. So 156 would be between B to A

Oh sorry, did you mean marks? ( not ums) it changes every year according to the difficulty of the exam. For the unit b exam in January, it was only 38/60 for an A* and 30/60 for an A. So maybe for an A in this exam you would need 70% ish, but that's just a guess.

I found that 2 hours was plenty of time! Loads of people in the exam was finished with 45 minutes to spare, even after checking our answers

Like Whoopli said: x+5/x-2 minus x/x-3
10. i ended up with 4x-15 over (x-2)(x-3) (or something) on the last question

i multiplied the denominators and numerator by opposite denominator ect to get the same denominator - i think thats what you do? then subtracted the top numbers

I finished after an hour and 10 minutes, I think I was the first to finish! I just looked up, and everyone including the foundation people was still writing!

And for the last question, I got 4x-15 over x^2-5x+6 :')

That's what I got, apart from that I multiplied out the brackets at the bottom, I think both ways are right

13. did anyone else get £727.26 for the cost of materials for the tent?

I can't remember exactly what I put, but I think I wrote £500 and something, but it might be wrong
16. For the last question i got -15 over (x-2)(x-3) [i think] the 2x on the left was a plus because you multiply out then simplify so it made it 2x-2x so no x was there. Well thats what my teacher said afterwards
17. i think for the tent question i got like £554 and did you all get £30.50 more on the interest question?
18. also on the last question i got 4x-15 over (x-2) (x-3) but i also expanded the bottom brackets

Thats what I got as it was 2x -- 2x and two minuses make a plus
