Examiner's Report

Q1.

Many candidates were aware that they needed to multiply by and so gained a method mark however

many could not accurately complete this operation. A common wrong answer was to write 21 as the

numerator. Others found the correct answer and then went on to try to evaluate it further, thus giving a

final incorrect answer losing the accuracy mark.

There were more correct answers than in previous papers as more candidates managed not to carry on

from the correct answer to simplify incorrectly.

Q2.

It was obvious that many candidates had been taught to cross multiply without understanding that they

were still dealing with a fraction and so a common error was to multiply both fractions by 6 and so clear

the fractions giving an answer of 5x + 9. Incorrect attempts to add the fractions were common

multiplying the numerators and adding the denominators was a fairly common mistake; the most common

incorrect answers were or . Candidates who attempted this incorrect method gained

no marks. It was disappointing to see a number of candidates get the correct two equivalent fractions and

then fail to expand the brackets in their numerators correctly. Others failed at the final stage. Having

reached the correct answer of they then attempted to simplify this further inappropriately,

sometimes to 5x + 1.5 and thus failed to gain the final accuracy mark. Some candidates did not see this

as an expression but tried to turn it into an equation to solve for x.

Q3.

In this question many students realised that they needed a common denominator and this mark was often

scored. Few students gained all three marks as the negative sign in front of the second fraction caused

problems for many students.

Q4.

Q5.

This question was answered well by the most able candidates but proved too difficult for many. Those

who appreciated the need for a common denominator were often let down by poor algebraic skills,

expanding brackets incorrectly or leaving them out altogether. Those who used a correct common

denominator and got further through the solution often cancelled incorrectly. Some candidates arrived at

the correct answer but then attempted to simplify it and cancelled incorrectly. These candidates lost the

final accuracy mark.

Q6.

The final question on the paper was well answered by the more able students although some of these

students lost the final mark by writing 3xx+4 = 3x4 or some other incorrect 'simplification'. The most common

incorrect response was to try to 'cancel' the x2 terms as well as the terms in x.

Q7.

Many students were unable to deal with the surds. Many of those that could expand the two brackets

wrote 5 as the last term rather than + 5. This led to an incorrect answer of 20 105. Many others could

not correctly combine the two 'middle' terms writing an answer of 30 + 105 whilst others gave an answer

of 30 55.

Q8.

This question involved multiplying out the brackets, rationalising, and simplifying the surds. Many failed to

expand the brackets correctly. Those who multiplied numerator and denominator by too early

ended up with every term having a attached. Many candidates were unable to simplify their

Q9.

Q10.

In part (a), common errors included candidates squaring the numerator and denominator or just

multiplying 5 by 2, but many of those who attempted it did get the correct answer.

Part (b) was attempted far less frequently. There were some marks given for correct expansion of

brackets, but in only a few cases were candidates then able to simplify their expressions correctly. It was

disappointing to find many who missed the middle terms in the expansion. There were many errors with

signs. Very few candidates recognised this as the difference of two squares.

Higher Unit 17 topic test Pearson Education 2015

Q11.

In this question on algebraic proof there were very few fully correct answers. One mark for establishing n

and n + 1 or equivalent was awarded to a few candidates and another small number of candidates who

were able to write (n + 1)2 n2 gained 2 marks. Some candidates were then able to correctly expand the

brackets and correctly simplify the expression to 2n + 1 or equivalent, scoring 3 marks. For the fourth

mark candidates had to establish and state that both elements of the original statement were equal.

A significant number of candidates used an arithmetic approach and gained no marks. There were also

many nil attempts.

Q12.

The majority of candidates had no understanding of what was required in this question. Candidates either

attempted the proof by substituting various values of n into (2n + 3)2 (2n 3)2 or they made no attempt

at all. A significant number of those who did know what was required lost marks by failing to use brackets

or by incorrectly writing their algebraic expressions. It was not uncommon to see '4n2 + 12n + 9 4n2

12n + 9 = 24n' which is an incorrect statement. This question was an algebraic proof and required the

algebra to be correctly written at all times. Many candidates gained one mark for the correct expansion of

either (2n + 3)2 or (2n 3)2 but were then unable to proceed any further. Some expanded (2n + 3)2 as 4n2

+ 9.

Q15.

Performance on algebraic fractions does not seem to get very much better over time, although a few

candidates did gain 1 mark for writing the left-hand side of this equation over a common denominator or

correctly multiplying out by a common multiple of 2 and 5.

A common error was to see all the left-hand side multiplied by 10, but not the righthand side. The

percentage of candidates who could then turn this into a linear equation of the form ax = b was very small

and fully correct solutions of 1213 were seldom seen. There were many attempts using inappropriate trial

and improvement methods, all of which were unsuccessful.
