Do you still get the marks if you use the quadratic equation to factorise the last one and leave it in quadratic formula form?

No, you have to find the crit. values from using the quadratic formula (if you used this method) and sketch a graph, then state the possible values using inequalities. I think you'll maybe get 1/2 marks.

Last year's was harder imo, I predict ~59 for an A.
I thought last year’s was harder as well. I was shocked at the amount of people who thought this paper was atrocious when I left the exam hall.

Probably because of all the fractions...

Did you do this for the K question finding the discriminat? Because I left it in quadratic format something like (42+/- root 1298) /20 but I think we’ll loose a mark for not putting it in its simplest form
