    I tried to learn all the techniques but for many of the questions, especially the car/train and the constant acceleration questions, I wasn't able to apply the stuff I learnt. I'm expecting my mark to be in the low 50s. The June 2011 paper required 62 for an A but why was that so easy compared to this year? Does everyone feel the same? Out of the 10 pupils in my Add Maths class, every single one of them found it extremely difficult and confusing.

    Correct.

    "A" stands for accuracy, so if you haven't got the right answer it isn't accurate. Hence why we have "M" marks so that you can still get marks if you use the right method but slip up in applying that method.
    Do you think I will get any marks for subtracting 5 instead of adding 5 for that bread question? Thanks in advance!

    Exactly the same here. In my school, there are around 40 people doing Add Maths and we all found it impossible, even people who normally get like 99% in regular GCSE Maths past papers. And I agree, it was so much harder than all the past papers we've done, even June 2010 (for which the A boundary was 61%). I'm legitimately expecting the grade boundary this year to be high 50s for an A

    Which question?

    Assuming Q.12, if you look at my unofficial mark scheme you'll see I've put in plenty of M1 method marks - and more may be given in the official mark scheme for f/t errors.

    Well done! That's the amount of UCAS points awarded i.e. 45 for an A.

    59/100 for an A. You don't get one UCAS point per mark which is why it's less.

    Wow that is strange. How do I calculate my actual percentage (the amount of points I got)?

    Thank you!I did think about that but 45 UCAS points on the current tariffs is far too much. I checked on their website and it's 20 for 2016 tariffs and 10 for 2017. Apparently the 45 is the number of points for another scoring system that nobody really uses.

    It is but your school probably decided to give it to you next week like mine.
