I’m assuming everybody’s so thrown by how hard the paper was that no one has created an unofficial Mark scheme.

I knew how to do the methods but I couldn’t get past the stupid quadratics. Feel o did very badly on this paper because I spent so much time struggling with stupidly high numbers. Didn’t even answer the last question because of that infuriating inequality.

I know it's really hard to tell, but anyone have any rough idea of what the grade boundaries could be based on other papers/exam boards etc.?
