    does anyone have a copy of the leaked c3 and c4 2013 papers?
    Exams officers have been asked to keep the original papers secure until after 24th June, at which point they may destroy them or use them as practice papers

    Find the discriminant. If it's less than 0, there are no real roots

    the discriminant has to be below 0 for there to be no real roots so just do the quadratic equation and the square root bit should have a minus for the value been rooted

    They're much harder than Edexcel, so that's a pretty good score, it'll probably be about an A/A* in Edexcel
