Mathematics (GCSE) - Higher Tier

Summer 2015 | Question 1 (4370/06)

Q

Although part (a) was fairly well answered, there were a number of errors with signs in particular. It is always worth checking if the answer found actually works in the equation.

 

Part (b) was sometimes given as an embedded answer.

 

In part (c), many candidates multiply out the brackets rather than divide both sides by 2 to start. The division method leads to the answer in fewer stages.

Some candidates had difficulty working from -2x = -16, with some misconceptions about manipulation or division by negative numbers.

Summer 2014 | Question 6 (4364/01)

Q

Q6 Most candidates can solve equations at this level; however, many embedded their answers.

Numerical errors such as 36 ÷ 4 = 8 rather than 9 meant that candidates lost unnecessary marks. Part (c) proved more difficult for some, with several solving 5x = 27 not 5x = 35.

Mathematics (GCSE) - Foundation Tier

Autumn 2015 | Question 16 (4353/01)

Q

This question was in common with the Higher Tier.

This was a traditional equation question with the variable on both sides. Where candidates knew the rules of solving equations full marks were awarded. Weaker candidates confused addition and subtraction and did not work with two sides of an equation. This question, along with question 12, highlights a weakness in the skills of algebra at this level.

Mathematics (GCSE) - Foundation Tier

Winter 2014 | Question 12 (4353/01)

Q

(a) Fairly well answered for correctly clearing the brackets with many candidates getting a total of B1 for the question.

 

If 2x = 17 obtained then it was usually followed by x = 8.5

 

10x = 31 and 10x = 17 was common errors seen after clearing the bracket and to a much lesser extent 2x = 31.

 

(b) Fairly well answered with many examples of correct embedded answers seen. It was usually a case of both marks or no marks.

 

x/5 = 9, x = 1.8 seen a few times
