Paper 1 Set A no.5 and Set A Paper 2 no. 13
on 4 April 2013
Good papers; I have just done Set A so far and checked my answers against the mark scheme. But be warned I have found two mistakes. Please note I am more than happy to be corrected here, but according to my understanding there are a couple of mistakes in the Set A booklets. Before you give them to your kids please note the following:
Paper 1 Set A no.5 should read that the equation for line B is y = x - 7 not y = x + 7 at is stated.
Paper 2 Set A no.13 says the answer is 119 - but the range is 10 and the mean is 123, so that is impossible - the answer should be 118.
I have not checked the other sets yet.
Update to the above review: Found a few more mistakes - contacted Scholastic who acknowledged the mistakes and sent me updated PDF copies of the corrections needed for particular pages in need of correction. They did say the papers would be corrected on reprint. But it is best to be aware of this issue if you have bought the first print copies.
Mistakes were as follows:
Those mentioned above and
In the Mark scheme.
Page 16, Q5 answer correct but workings incorrect - volume of cut-out should be 2 x 2 x 3
Page 19, Q6 graph point is indistinct so have included an acceptable range of answers between 70 and 90miles.
Page 20, Q11 one of the 3 answers incorrect - should be 0 degrees C not 0.6.
Page 23, Q14 answers correct but given in the wring order.
