    Bet the only ones who get 100% in that are people with 25% more time without any conditions that slow them down...

    Surely the marks should better reflect the time it takes to do each question?

    Edexcel advises "One mark per minute" but we all know that's not possible on this paper am I right?

    yes definitely .... the exam boards should be more strict on who to give extra time to quite a few people get it when they don't need it and end up getting 100% and making a lot of us suffer as the grade boundaries for 100 ups are increased

    It's sad to think that - ultimately - that was a test of our ability to work under pressure. Not a test of mathematical understanding, a test of your ability to overcome nerves and work as fast as you can. It's quite reasonable to assume that the marks people get in this paper aren't reflective of their mathematical abilities.

    exactly man... I think schools are at fault there. In my school, two of my friends pretended they wrote really slow and requested a test. Turned out he wrote 5 WORDS PER MINUTE (he later told me he completely cheated on that) and now he has 25% more time AND a laptop!?

    I did the objective line right at first but then I thought it was wrong then changed it, but I didn't cross it out, I also did 2 sets of calculations for the vertex, will they accept the one with the most amount of marks??

    couldn't agree more. Surely if everyone thought the same they'll adjust grade boundaries accordingly but still..

    yep same at my school theres quite a few that do that, exam boards should really do something about it as it gives them an unfair advantage

    Sadly that applies to most places, except for stats where it's far more generous (sometimes marks can take less than a minute to get) and with D1, it's definitely true that marks take longer to get and it's far too easy to slip up somewhere in D1.
