    Probably A
    Highly doubt that would be 90 UMS but of course that is irrelevant with regards to getting an A* overall

    Did anyone else get plus or minus root 2 over 2 for the first question?

    Yes. However the negative one is rejected as x is positive.

    What UMS roughly would I get if I lost 15-18 marks?

    Yes, although I’m pretty sure it can be both positive or negative.

    74 /75 gutted i didnt write sqrt(5) to 3s.f
    That's the only mark I think I lost too!!! depending on what the marks are like for the geometric line segment question

    No - look at the question again. It says exact values.

    The were two question where the answer was root 2. Q1 no do not reject the negative. Q5 (I think) reject the negative because the X Co-ordinate is positive.

    On a side not do you think I will get the mark for correct unsimplified answer to the exact value of the X coordinate as it did not say in the simplist form.

    He is referring to the wrong question in Q1 you do not reject the negative.
