    Not aware of any practice exam questions for the new spec, so I'd recommend just doing the past papers for the old spec
    Do you have the mark schemes for both sets of the specimen papers?

    You can bullet point them, more efficient and easier to find point per mark

    I'm also really stuck on that did u manage to figure it out. My teacher couldn't even do it that's how bad they are.[/QUOT

    put your pencil on the graph at 5 mins, draw a diagonal line using a ruler. Then by doing this you can create a triangle finding the gradient. so change in y/change in x. Also the gradient will be negative because the graph is sloping down
    thanks but i still dont understand. i drew my tangent line but i dont know how the answer is -.034. i keep doing 4.6/5 which is clearly wrong. im really bad at maths could u please explain it a bit more clearly sorry

    I'm not sure if they were the actual grade boundaries or whether the school made them up.
