    Hey!
    I just came across a question when doing M1 revision and completed it successfully. Although i got the right answer, my method is completely different to that in the mark scheme. Will i still be rewarded with full credit?

    It is this question here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHk5rN0rNfY
    Instead of taking x-2 and 12-x as my differences, i said the difference between the mass of the two tensions was x and y. Therefore, once i solved to get 100=xm and 150=ym, knowing that y+x=10, i could obtain the answer of 6m.

    As long as you have a valid method and you get the correct answer how could they mark it incorrect.

    unless told a specific method to use, gaining the correct answer is usually credited.
