Well, I do have another question, kind of a complex one. During P1 I actually kind of wasted the space given originally, however I think I did come up with the right solution on an extra sheet that I borrowed. Anyways, I didn't mark my solution number on the sheet I took even though I think it clearly stated to do so. Will that, or my answer on the original space will be considered as the legitimate one? Thanks.

If you marked on your original script, that you have continued the question on another paper, then your answer on the extra sheet will be taken. It's also encouraged to circle or underline your final answers, as a precaution.

It's a 50/50 then bro. You should have indicated it clearly, somehow.

By the way bros, I am checking the GT for last year. I just saw that an A* on A level is around 225 to 230, and it says that A level has a total mark of 250. So when you convert that into percentage, it makes 92% for an A*. So really is an A* at 92%?

I am expecting grade thresholds to be at like 80% for AS level maths(variant 2). Around 40 for M1, around 60 for P1, though I could be wrong about P1 thresholds since there were a few new ways of asking questions, and some challenging questions for most candidates(many made mistakes in the binomial question by multiplying the expansion, many found the values of f(x)=k tough, the question about range after you draw the sin and cos graph, others made mistakes in h and k and most often, people forget about subtracting volume of the line). This was the general response from schools in Lahore. So maybe P1 thresholds could be 55 or lower since there were so many questions that candidates found difficult.

No bro, those are standard maths GT. You may check the June 2016 and 2017 thresholds. They are very similar to these.

Thresholds for paper 12 maybe like 56 or 57 but I really don't think threshold for 42 will drop that low. Will be around 44-45 by my guess!

Another question!

By any chance do you guys happen to remember the value of K in the question related to functions in Paper 12? Please tell me it was -3.

It was the same question in which they asked to find the inverse for the function. This'll probably help if you can't quite remember the question I'm talking about.

Well don't quite know about the questions found difficult but many candidates here said they missed out the questions due to lack of time for p 12.
