Edexcel GCSE mark schemes say that if the correct answer is obtained from the incorrect method then 0 marks should be awarded. The image I have attached is for a mark scheme of a question on histograms. I put an answer of 19 for 15b) which is right. However, this was a complete guess! I put some random working to make it seem as if I could work it out, but the Edexcel mark schemes say that 0 marks should be awarded in this instance. Is this definitely the case or is there a chance I can get a mark?
Is there any way I can get a mark on this question? Watch

I don't think you'd get the mark due to your random guess with working that doesn't support the answer. BUT, to be honest with you, examiners have a load of papers to mark, and they likely just look at the answer box and give you the full 3 marks if the correct answer is there - you might get lucky
