1. (Original post by The_Mentor)
Yep, I did the same
Thanks, i was just thinking if edexcel would check all uncrossed out working/writing amd give the highest possible mark even for 1 markers.
P.s. just to confirm that you did read my previous post correctly right? That i DIDN'T write.. "final answer:"... before writing the final answer.
Sorry for the trouble.

In fact, you dont need to mention which one is your final answer, if they see the correct one in the paper, you are good to go

Oh okay thanks.
And minimax was -4 right?
-4 not equal to 0 therefore no stable solution

It was -4 or 4 but it was most likely -4 since one of the others was 0.
But yeh

I'm almost certain it was 4 not equal to zero. Row maximin was 0 and column minimax was 4.
7. how did any of you prove flow is maximal for Q2E?
i used C1= min cut to show flow is maximal

Not sure I remember the question perfectly but I think you had to draw on your own cut, as opposed to using one that was already given. Then just max flow = min cut theory.

10. Any predictions for the D2 grade boundaries?
I think it would be A*-71,A-67,B-58,C-49,D-40

Id drop the A*/A blundaries by 2 marks each.

Yes I do.
The Linear prgramming mix with Game theory will get loads of people I think. That will be a decider as well as the last question. It was very tight for time aswell. Although i only answered half of the paper

I think it'll be lower than that. Dynamic programming question was particularly nasty this year. I'm gonna guess A*-68, A-62, B-54.

That's what I was thinking due to the linear programming and game theory question, so I agree with you. How many marks you think you got?

I think I got 73/75, but I'm worried as nobody ever made an unofficial mark scheme. How about you?
