    The official mark scheme for this D1 is harsh. More than 3 workers on the scheduling
    = 0 marks currently.
    There is no official mark scheme yet

    Here is my mark scheme. Only got hold of the paper today. It was indeed a long paper (even longer when you have to draw your own diagrams!)

    Hi there. I did the reverse thing doing the quick sort (sorted in to ascending then reversed as I realised I made a mistake), and I've seen it accepted in mark schemes before. However my friends told me they've also seen this not being accepted in other mark schemes. Do you think there's a chance they wouldn't accept it this time?

    😫😫 didn't get an answer.
    Someone please....

    Again, how would edexcel combine the following 6 modules for 2 AS
    C1 C2 FP1 M1 S1 D1
    Do I even have any say on it?
    They jumble the applied units around (D1,S1,M1) to give you the highest grade possible in both Maths and Further Maths. Maths takes priority first, but they will do it to give the best great in each.

    Yes there is. My teacher is marking Edexcel D1. He received the official mark scheme from Edexcel in order to mark the papers yesterday. Whilst we were not allowed to see the complete one he used this to show us this as an example of how harsh the mark scheme currently is. They adjust these once a certain number of responses have been analysed hence is likely to change. And this will happen this week before he receives his questions to mark next weekend.

    What do you think grade boundaries will look like
    55/56 for an a?
    hope so, fingers crossed. I found it a little more challenging than last years, so i hope it stays at 58 or drops down by like 2.

    For the algorithm question. Where they ask which value should be X. You wrote it was due to it being an integer. If I were to write as the x value would never equal zero sending the algorithm into an infinite loop, would that give me marks?
    It definitely should do; in fact, I find your explanation better!

    It will hopefully be in the low nineties, but it should at least be in the mid-to-high eighties; it all just depends upon the grade boundaries...

    I hope Edexcel feel ashamed for providing such a poor quality exam - proof's in the boundaries!
