Please find attached a Mock Paper 2 to use in preparation for the calculator exam.

L'Evil Fish has come up with some answers for this paper. I haven't checked them but he is quite reliable. If you strongly disagree with any of his answers let me know and I will check them.

Thank you Mr M.

I've noticed I have got a few questions wrong but are Edexcel markers harsh? If i get the method (working out) correct and the question wrong would i still get for example 1/3 marks?

And what are the grade boundaries? I've heard that Paper 2 calculator is the most difficult

Oh god, I think I've done fairly bad on this paper

To be honest, this paper was quite hard. I did multiply nnumber of paper before the exam and in past 3 years there wasn't a such hard questioner... What do you think people? How many marks will be required to get C ?

Many of the marks are for using a sensible method.

No-one knows the grade boundaries as they are only decided after all of the papers have been marked.

Guys is it possible that if I got 67 marks from non-cal and will get about 80-85 marks from the calculator paper then I still have a chance for C in overall ?

It was hard, I would say 65 and up for C

Is there a chance that we can obtain the question paper for this exam ?

For question 4) c) ii) if i put a fraction 2/8 and its 1/4 will i get at least 0.5 or 1 point ?

2/8 is correct. It doesn't say you have to simplify the answer.

It was fairly hard.

November 2012 grade boundaries were 139/200, so about 70 on both papers, meaning the difficulty of them papers were quite easy.
June 2012 grade boundaries were 130/200, and both of them papers were hard (similar to today) so everyone should be aiming for at least 65 and up on both papers.

By the way, does anyone remember what you needed to do for question 22?

In my opinion, I thought paper 1 was quite hard. I hope paper 2 is better, though. I've heard that to gain a C in Foundation Tier, you'll need 139/200; that's like 70 on one, and 69 on the other. This is the updated grade boundaries, apparently. Good luck!

From what I remember, the question 22 was about some guy who was selling the car and house insurance.

Each car insurance was £xxx and each house was £xxx

That guy had 5% of all car insurances he sells and 10% from all house insurances sold

He sold 4 car insurances and x (don't remember the figure) house insurances in May. He also had the £530 base income. The question was to calculate what is the total income (base + sales). He basically had £530 base and £200 from sales.

Is it possible to obtain the question paper yet ?

The grade boundaries have not been decided yet so someone is winding you up!
