    On 10 c I didn't write it as a bracket, I just explained that it had moved down 36 units and then put the equation instead which was something like f(x)-36

    Do you think I would have lost both marks?

    I'm so annoyed about 12i I just panicked when I first saw it and then just couldn't do it. I put both equations equal to each other, and then rearranged and wrote down b^2 - 4ac > 0 so hopefully I would have picked up some marks. I know I could have done that question though, should not have panicked

    I have attached my workings and answer I gained for 8ii, which I know is wrong but do you think I will gain any method marks for it or was I just wrong?

    You'll get all the method marks and probs the b1 mark but for some reason you did 16 + 160 = 156... Haha so you'll loose probs two marks tops.

    i did that because under the square root i go '16 - - 160' which is 16+160. But oh well, 1 method mark is fine by me! along the lines of a method mark topic. for 12i, i didn't get that one either, but i made both equations equal to each other and wrote b^2 -4ac > 0 on my sheet too, would this be a method mark also? if so that means i got 62/72 and to say I've been getting very low grades all year I'm so pleased with that, its slightly disheartening seeing everyone say they got like 70+ but i was aiming for a C so 62 is fantastic for me

    Oh right I see. Erm I can't remember that question, was it the one with k? If so you probably won't. If it was the question with k I think they were looking for you to sub in the values into b^2 -4ac not just state it as c was 13-k or something along those lines, that was the method mark in that as that will catch a lot out, just stating the b^2... Will you not get you a mark. Yeah I think I got close to full marks, although I did find it more challenging than other papers I've done, so I think grade boundaries will be relatively low. I'd say an A will be just below 60.

    Question Paper, courtesy of Nels98: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...819&p=55753987
    Props to Mathbomb for writing this with me

    1. r = \sqrt{\dfrac{A}{\pi(x+y)}} (2 marks)

    2. y = 4x + 10
    Intersection with axes:
    (0, 10), (-2.5, 0)
    (5 marks)

    3a. 1 (1 mark)

    b. 0.6 (3 marks)

    4. x < -1.2 (3 marks)

    5. (7/8,19/8) (4 marks)

    6a. 6\sqrt{5} - 31 (3 marks)

    b. 22\sqrt{2} (2 marks)

    7. 81x^4 - 216x^3 + 216x^2 - 96x + 16 (4 marks)

    8a. Use Pythagoras (2 marks)

    b. x = \dfrac{2+2\sqrt{11}}{5} (3 marks)

    9a. False because rhombuses/kites can have diagonals intersecting at 90 degrees. Should be => (2 marks)

    b. False; many examples where x^2 is an integer and x is not, e.g. x^2 = 2 so x = \sqrt{2}, which isn't an integer. Should be <= (2 marks)

    10a. Should hit x-axis at -3, 2 and 5, y-axis at 30 (3 marks)

    b. Expand brackets (2 marks)

    c. Translation by the vector
    \begin{pmatrix}

0 \\

-36

\end{pmatrix} (2 marks)

    d. (x+1)^2(x-6) (5 marks)

    11a. centre is (10,2), r = 5\sqrt{5} (2 marks)

    b. A(-1, 0), B(21, 0), D(0, -3), E(0, 7) (4 marks)

    c. y = 3x - 28 (6 marks)

    12a. k &gt; 14/3 (5 marks)

    b. 3(x+2)^2 + 1 (5 marks)

    c. k = 5 (2 marks)

    Enjoy, hope you all got what you wanted!

    For 8b will you lose a mark for not cancelling the answer, because it was 4+ square root 176 / something originally and it didn't tell you to cancel it down?....
