    I have been working on my paper for a while now and I am proud to announce that it is finally ready to submit.

    This paper was designed for GCSE students who are aiming for a grade 9 in their GCSE's Maths exam. The questions I have created are meant to be difficult so please do not be put off by them if you cannot answer them. (Me and other members will always be happy to help in chat)

    This isn't only for GCSE students. Anyone is welcome to have a try, and you can discuss your answers/workings with others in the chat. HOWEVER I must insist that if you are going to submit an answer to this thread, please use a SPOILER so that it does not ruin the question for others who are trying to work it out.

    I hope you find this paper useful and feel free to distribute it as much as you would like to

    I would like to give a huge thank you to Notnek and Lemur14 for allowing me to make this thread, it means a lot.

    This thread can also be used for any questions students would like to post in here that are difficult GCSE questions since this is the main purpose of this thread.

    This is the link to my website (where you can find out a bit of information about me) - http://jmaths.simplesite.com/

    This is the link to the Grade 9 Paper - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...it?usp=sharing

    I hope you find this thread useful and good luck to everyone
    Sincerely Y11_Maths

    EDIT: Sorry I have not had time to upload a mark scheme but will work on uploading it once my GCSEs are finished. I appreciate your patience and good luck to everyone doing their GCSEs

    Y11_Maths the paper looks great Certainly a few questions in there I'd have to sit down and think about rather than doing quickly in my head as I would with the majority of GCSE
    Lovely to have this up Really not a problem at all, thank you for doing it! Will give it a little bit as there's plenty of questions in there for people to be getting on with, then will dig out my grade 9 booklet from last year and see if there's anything decent in there

    Maybe try solving for x and y first with the other equations?

    Well you must determine what the value of both y and x are first. Try rearranging your first simultaneous equation in the form y=...

    The hardest part is finding out what your values are
