i found it quite hard actually. I hope i can get a 6 which is my target grade. What do you think a 6 will be. Think it was 120ish last year. For reference, i got a 5 in mocks.

Exactly the same for me. I'm just hoping that the next two papers are much easier

It's 11.5 amigos. I got 12.5 as well but have recently learned where I went wrong: you had to subtract the area of the little semicircle from the area of the big circle (100pi - 8pi) to get the area of the big circle, which is therefore 92pi. Then you divide 92pi by 8pi, which gives 11.5.

Agreed... I didn't find this paper too hard but it was far from easy. Already spotted several marks I've definitely dropped.

I thought the first half of the paper was quite easy(ish) but it got way harder at the end.

Huh. I hope you're right, but I was pretty sure, after speaking around, that the shaded semicircle wasn't part of the big unshaded circle and had to be subtracted from it. I'll be interested to see what the official mark scheme says.
