    Unless the papers are easy in which case it can jump up to 71 for A* like it was for S2 last year then it should be A* most of the time.

    Is A* simply A+7? If A and B were 64 and 57 respe, what would be A*?

    Grade boundaries are like this.
    First A and E boundaries are set nationally.
    Then the middle then A*, A* is the difference between A n B added to the A boundary.
    If the A boundary is above 60 then it is the average between the A and 75/75 rounded down if needed.
    I have tagged who actually knows it imthe sytem in and out. I might be wrong but this is roughly how it is done.

    I presume not, but can someone do C3 and C4 as well as C34, and just get the highest mark they achieve?

    No. They are separate qualifications.

    For part c why can't you equation 2t / 3t^2-8 (dy/dx) to 2/5 (gradient found for the line) to find t? I found t=-1 which corresponds to point A and also t=8/3

    The line l intersects the curve but they do not necessarily have the same gradients at that point (eg think of the intersection of y = x^2 and y = x+2. They don't have the same gradient where they intersect.

    when you 2root something you give a +- answer and you don't for 3root, but do you also +- for 4root?
