2. Mr M is there anyway I can get a hold of this paper? I wanted to attempt the paper myself *I am an a level student, I like trying the harder questions on GCSE papers*

Ask a teacher in your school? They are allowed to use them with candidates in their centre. My advice would be to focus on your A level - surely GCSE is a pretty trivial challenge for you now?
4. Did you use pythagoras in question 7 to calculate the length of the top?
Did you use pythagoras in question 7 to calculate the length of the top?
Yes
6. Thank you Mr M 😀
7. For the triangle question what do you use? And is 11% fine?
8. For number 7, I got that he needs 51m? Will I still get marks?

Also can I ask what the cost was for number 8 thanks
9. Hi mr M, can you post the foundation markschemes aswell please? Thankyou

For the cor ordinates in the transformation question. I put (1,2) intead carelessly. Does this mean I have lost a marker two.
11. For question 24 did you have to you the sine rule?
13. Also is 90 degrees clockwise wrong for the transformation Q?
14. I got 51.2m I can't exactly remember for question 7 how many marks will I get ?
15. I think I got 51.2 something like that
16. (Original post by Hassanh)
For question 24 did you have to use the sine rule?
No.
17. (Original post by Kmohazeb)
Also is 90 degrees clockwise wrong for the transformation Q?
Yes.

Sorry I've made a mistake here. Will fix it.
19. Would u get full marks if u say he needs 51m? And not 51.2?
20. (Original post by StressedByDay)
For the triangle question what do you use? And is 11% fine?
Area of a scalene triangle formula and the cosine rule. I think 11% will be fine.
