I'm pretty sure the binomial expansion question was

(1+2x)^5

not (2+x)^5 ?

Correct:
(1+2x)^5 * (2+x)^7

For the question about finding the perimeter, I got the radius of the sector to be 5.8. Most people who attempted the question at my sixth form did too. I'm not sure which is right xD
I think the radius was like 5.83 or something.

The last one is -5/2, (4X^2 + 20x +25) = (2x+5)^2

It was 4x^2 - 20x + 25 = 0

Most likely two marks for finding a and d, and lost one mark for not finding u12

Absolutely agree with Bosssman it was indeed:

4x^2 – 20x + 25 =0

Formed from

4x^2 + 36x + 45 = 56x + 20

(Then rearranged to get the above)

log4(2x+3) + log4(2x+15) = 1 + log4(14+5)

Note when I say log4 I mean log base 4 (But can't use subscripts as I'm on my phone)

At most you'd lose the A1 mark (Anymore would be ridiculous and harsh) but kudos on taking on a relatively formidable question for C2.

Your projected mark of 65 should be comfortably beyond an A so congratulations!

People generally found the paper quite difficult judging from the poll, so 90UMS is likely to be about 65.

My personal predicted boundaries:

Full UMS - 72
A - 56
B - 48
C - 41
D - 33
E - 26
