I'm doing the June-05 C1/P1 exam. You had to solve some simultaneous equations. I got y = A (I'm saying 'A' so I don't ruin it if anyone else is doing the test) and then solved the value of x = B by substituting y = A into one of the equations. These were both right, but then for some reason right at the end of my answer I put 'therefore, y = C and x = B (instead of y = A and x = B).
I awarded myself the answer mark because the correct answer was in my working, though I don't want to be inaccurate. I'm not sure whether this was the correct decision or not though. The mark scheme I was using didn't have any clear guidance as to what the examiner is supposed to do if the answer contains the correct answer and then the answer copied down wrong?
If correct answer is in working but not in answer do you still get A1 mark? watch

does it matter? if you put the dang answer in the right spot then it wouldn't
