    So I think the absolute bare minimum score I got is 56/75 (this is assuming that I don't get any method marks for the two 7 markers). Would this be a B you think?
    Yeah that should be a high B

    With the first question it asked for the answer as a bearing which is why you needed to add 90.
    As for the second question.. I'm not sure how many marks you'll lose maybe half?
    But they didn't say beating they just asked the direction? So if I mention the X axis surely I'll be marked right
    Was the friction down the slope btw

    I'm beginning to think the only answer they'll accept for the last question is 225 as a bearing.

    Saying 45 doesn't make sense. It's not specific enough. Your force could be going south east or south west.

    Only giving your answer as a bearing leaves no uncertainty to the examiner

    I wrote m=0.73 to 2sf will I still get the mark and for the bearing I wrote 135 from i/x axis and I wrote 45 degrees below x drew diagram aswell. Do you get penalised for not writing units I wrote M=42 is this right

    My m1 was a disaster. I should've revised. I might get 60, so a B or even C?

    in 2013 you got the mark for drawing a diagram and showing the force at an angle of 45 so i guess it'll be like that again i guess

    Alot of people are saying 59-60 for A but keep in mind it was an IAL paper (i think. It looked like it from the front) and last IAL papers were about 53-54 for A
    What are you talking about? It wasn't an IAL paper...

    4, 3 marks for like some pythagoras stuff and another mark for showing the direction. Reckon either you show it on a diagram or you have a bearing, i agree just saying 45 degrees from the horizontal isn't specific enough (although it should be fine with a diagram).

    It was the scale and the mass. Can't remember fully but you had to use equations of motion

    Ah ok, that was the pulley question wasn't it? Just trying to get it all straight in my head

    Question 2 was the one about the scale-pan with a brick in it

    2a) Considering the whole system:

    T - 2g = 2a
    T = 2g + 2a
    T = 2(9.8) + 2(0.5)
    T = 20.6N

    b) Considering the brick:

    R - 1.5g = 1.5a
    R = 1.5g + 1.5a
    R = 1.5(9.8) + 1.5(0.5)
    R = 15.45N

    Oh, i didnt read that part, and just read magnitude. So, i didnt give dirention, but i did draw a diagrap with 45 degree angle, and the reaction at it as well, will that be enough? (i doubt it)

    Also, i guess most of us got physics tomorrow? aqa here

    What even is an IAL paper? The international papers?

    Oh i guess that'd be fine. Although oads of people in my class literally just wrote 45 degrees from the horizontal then laughed cause I was the only one who got a bearing.

    I initially accepted that i was wrong but upon giving it further thought, I think they messed up.
