im pretty sure q8 was 106.1 (since angle = 106.06...)
I knew something seemed wrong about that question. I got 106.1 too, glad I'm not the only one.

What do you think the grade boundaries will be then roughly? Because those papers both felt much harder than past papers... 137 for the A^?
I think it will be around 137-141. Most of the time with the past papers, I knew what to do immediately. In today's paper though, I really had to think about what to do, especially for the last question and the trig one where you had to find k. I thought Thursday's paper was alright though. I guess that was AQA's way of tricking people into thinking today's paper was going to be good.

I wrote all the answers on the back of my hand, and it's reasonable to assume I cannot read my back-of-hand-handrwriting and mistook a 1 for a 7. Since both of you agreed on that, I'll change it

In the process. I cannot remember many so please comment everyone if you do remember.

'Sir'. Bloody hell

For q14 you out 10 but that isn't a square number
Sorry, I have forgotten most of the questions. Could you describe q.14 please
6. i got around 150, maybe plus minus 5 marks. do you guys think thats an A^ cos most people thought the 2016 maths gcse edexcel paper was hard but in the end the grade boundaries were so high!

1a. (and is probably allowed) Marks=3?
b. Marks=?

2a. Marks=?
b. Marks=?
c. Because the number of columns of B does not equal the number of rows of A Marks=1

3a. Since , choose any two factors, multiply those together, and write the other two factors: e.g Marks=?
b. Factorised, so is an arbitrary square e.g , and Marks=?

4. Marks=?

5. Marks=?

6. Marks=?

7. Marks=?

8. Marks=?

9. Marks=?

10. Marks=?

11a. Draw the thing. Marks=?
11b. Marks=?

12a. Marks=?
b. Marks=?

13. Marks=5?

14. , Marks=?

15. Marks=3?

16a. Marks=1
b. Marks=1
c. Marks=1

17a. Marks=?
c. The roots are and Marks=?
18. Marks=?

19a. . Marks=1 Think of 19a. and 19b. as transformations: https://www.desmos.com/calculator/4kphkki8vl
b. Marks=1
c. . This is rearranging of with Marks=2

20a. Angle at circumference is half angle at centre Marks=1
b. e.g Angle in triangle
Angle on straight line
Other base angle
Other angle in triangle Marks=5?
There are obviously many other ways to do this. I think we all know if we got or did not get marks on this question

21a. Marks=?
b. Marks=?
c. Normal equation
So intersects x-axis at
The rest is easy (show one length is twice the other) Marks=?

22. and were the pairs of solutions Marks=?

23. is the constant, because

Marks=4?

24. Marks=4?
dude, i swear 18 is 16y^2/5, because the area x*2x/2, and x=4y/sqrt5, so x*2x/2 = (4y/sqrt5)^2

Isn't the area of the rectangle ? Why divide by two?

lol, it said find the area of the rectangle in terms of y
10. Surely
(2^m)^3
= 8^3m not 2^3m?
Correct me if I'm wrong!
11. I've just realised for the area of the rectangle question I found the area of the triangle I read the question wrong.
I found x in terms of y though. Will I get any method marks for this?

Come on Steven, these are basic exponent laws!

lol, i made the same exact mistake, how much marks would you lose?
lol, it said find the area of the rectangle in terms of y
Can't really remember the question. If you could further detail it it would be great

Tbh I have no idea. Anywhere between 1 and them all

between them all, omg you must be joking, am sure 2 marks
19. (Original post by Npt512)

I got 16 aswell; 4 across and 8 down
between them all, omg you must be joking, am sure 2 marks
