1. Can someone PLEASE do an unofficial mark scheme on a separate thread OR post the paper if you somehow manage to get it.

Thanks

Well as they don't send off the question papers it may be possible for anyone who has an exam tomorrow to pick up a copy of it if they have kept them.

how bout this: it was ****ing easy *****
Lovely.
4. you're a ****
5. That exam was BS!!! IT was harder than C1 and C2 from AS Maths combined... I am speaking because i am fully capable of getting A's in A level Maths and i know the difficulty of AS Maths.... Honestly OCR you give easy papers in the previous years and then piss all over us in the 2016 series?! The grade boundary better be around 57 for a A, else i have definitely got below an A.

what was the angle of the triangle? and the shortest length of AB?
I got 91.25 for the angle and 11.5 for AB

i got 90 then I just put 90.5. I think the way to get the answer was to get the biggest number for cos and using the inverse function right? my calculator showed a maths error when i got cos -1 (5.something)

I got 90 degrees
100 percent sure it was 88.1 degrees cuz U had to do upper bound which was 12.5 divided by the lower bound which was 11.5 ,
11. That awkward moment when everyone get about 90 for the triangle question and you get some number over 100.

Except when you do the inverse of cos you want the number inside to be as small as possible to get the biggest angle.

I checked using my calculator during the exam.

Was it not 97 something degrees as you had to make b and c smaller by 0.5 cm and a larger by 0.5cm. To get largest angle

It's got nothing to do with lower bounds. Its just the upper bound of the side opposite to the angle. Other sides don't natter.

Hang on, not smallest as possible, but follow this graph:

Yes this is what I got. Can't remember the exact figure but it was ~97 and I did what you did.

I've forgotten what answer I ended up getting, but I think that's what I did...
20. I got 90 ..

But wtf i feel so embarrased if it was actually 88.1 degrees coz thats simple gcse

But if u divided by 11.5 like me but had 12.5 on top instead of 12 how come u got a smaller angle? Surely it should've been larger than 90?

Anyone else fasting today for Ramadan? Nearly half of the ppl who entered for this exam didnt turn up so the room was extra quiet ....then my stomach decides to bomb everyone's ears with its pissed off rumbling

Grade boundaries BETER be low coz the 2015 seemed like gsce child's play in comparison
