STICKY! 9-1 Exam questions by topic – HIGHER TIER – version 2

The below are all the HIGHER TIER questions collated by topic from:

  • AQA – Sample Assessment Material and Practice set 1 and 2 
  • OCR – Sample Assessment Material and Practice set 1
  • Pearson Edexcel – Sample Assessment Material, Specimen set 1 and Specimen set 2.
  • WJEC Eduqas – Sample Assessment Material

Please note that these questions have been copied/retyped from the original sample/specimen assessment materials and whilst every effort has been made to ensure there are no errors, any that do appear are mine and not the exam boards (similarly any errors I have corrected from the originals are also my corrections and not theirs!).

The objective is to provide support to fellow teachers and to give you a flavour of how different topics “could” be examined. They should not be used to form a decision as to which board to use (as if they would .. but it needs to be said!). There is no guarantee that a topic will or won’t appear in the “live” papers from a specific exam board or that examination of a topic will be as shown in these questions.

Please also see my other notes about this resource ON THIS POST and also check out the questions by topic for the FOUNDATION TIER PAPERS !

PS – The only questions I have excluded , are a few of the questions in relation to scale drawings and bearings due to scaling the pictures.

PPS – Please do not put these papers on your own website – I am still updating them as and when I find mistakes!

    How do I then share them?

    On circle theorem H Q5 you take 180 from 83. I don’t understand that can you please explain?

  24. admin June 19, 2016 at 11:22 pm

    SPQ = 83 ( 39+34) and so angle QRS has to be 180-83 = 97 (opposite angles in a cyclic quadrilateral add to 180)

  26. JustMathsMel July 10, 2016 at 9:22 pm

    not yet no … one of my jobs for the summer is to complete the solutions for the ones that are missing. Sorry!

  27. Sally McMillan July 18, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    Hi Mel

    Is there a “Trigonometry 1” missing from the Higher page? There are two different versions of “Trigonometry 2” on this page which seems to be more the harder trig stuff (sine rule, cosine rule etc) but no “Trigonometry 1” with more basic stuff. Thanks for all your hard work on this, totally amazing resource which I am linking in to my SOW as we speak!

  28. JustMathsMel July 18, 2016 at 11:26 pm

    Hi Mel these worksheets are a great resource and I was wondering whether the justmaths team were going to do any worksheets for the new practise papers on the edexcel website (New GCSE (9-1) Maths practice test papers x 12 – Set 1 and 2, March 2016 and New GCSE (9-1) Maths practice test papers x 6 – Set 3 July 2016) I would be happy to create a rough draft myself, if you email me the practise papers. [email protected]

    Thanks Izzy

  34. Amy October 9, 2016 at 9:22 am

    On the Algebraic Proof Question 4 your answers prove it using consecutive terms. The exam question wants it proved for ANY two terms and the actual mark scheme proves it in a more general form.

  35. JustMathsMel October 16, 2016 at 2:32 pm

    Thanks for that I have replaced the solutions.

  36. Ella November 5, 2016 at 4:30 pm

    These questions are amazing, Can you please give the answers to volume of cones, prisms and pyramids abd also the ratio and proprtion questions.
    Thank you

  37. Mark Ritchings November 12, 2016 at 5:47 pm

    Excellent resource. Thank you. In question 4 of probability 2 you can write your first probability as 1/5 rather than a/5a.

  38. Rachael December 2, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    Thanks for a wonderful resource. Just checking the solution on Simultaneous Higher Q3. You have substituted y = 5 – 2x, should we substitute y = 5 + 2x, as we added 2x to get y by itself?

    Hi Mark – yes you are correct … I have updated to include this too.

  51. Dominic January 6, 2017 at 11:10 pm

    Happy New Year Mel and the team, hope you are well.- Just wanted to confirm a solution with you for exact trig ratios.
    Question 1 wants the answer in the form ‘root k’, where k is an integer. Whilst we are used to always simplifying surds where possible, in this case are they wanting the single surd, which would be root 48?

    Possibly not, but the wording seems that way.

    Thanks for the endless and incredible effort.

  52. JustMathsMel January 7, 2017 at 9:02 pm

    Hi Dominic – yes you are correct. I’ve updated the solutions with my own. mel

    If there isn’t any questions on those topics it’s because the exam boards hadn’t put any in the papers that are listed on the blog I’m afraid. It doesn’t mean they aren’t going to come up though.

    whi is this website called 9-1 topics when there are no new topics im lost, ie proof of circle theorems, velocity time graphs, kinematics etc

  59. JustMathsMel January 31, 2017 at 11:27 pm

    I’m sorry but I dont make the questions up … they are a collection of questions from the exam boards.

  60. JustMathsMel January 31, 2017 at 11:56 pm

    kinematics is not in the new GCSE. Proof of circle theorems in not new.
    These questions are from the samples/specimen papers …

  61. JustMathsMel January 31, 2017 at 11:57 pm

    if there are any questions it will be on the circle worksheets – I’ve collated what questions were on the sample/specimens. Thats not to say they won’t appear if there arent any questions on a specific topic.

  62. Mr Busby February 3, 2017 at 12:31 pm

    Hi. These are awesome!

    Is there a ZIP file containing all of the documents I could download rather than each one manually?

  63. boss man February 3, 2017 at 7:09 pm

    when you guys collect the questions from the exam paper do u use the mark scheme answers or do it urself, cos ive found quite a few mistakes 🙁 bounds Q10 the lower bound should be 7.15 not 7.05

  64. Dominic February 5, 2017 at 8:28 pm

    Don’t know how you keep your composure with some of these crazy comments.

    Anyway, a minor correction on the Trigonometry solutions V2, the first answer needs a slight addendum. The answer requires the full height (which has been underlined, so kudos for that) but then the 1.8m hasn’t been added on to the trig result.

    Thanks again – Hope you don’t mind my pedanticism .

    On volumes of prisms (cones, pyramids and spheres), question 5, I don’t think you should subtract the volume of the frustum from the volume of the overall cone? Especially seeing as you only need the volume of the frustum to multiply by 2.5? Please reply asap, thanks

  97. Jones, Alex May 7, 2017 at 3:01 pm

    Amazing

  98. JustMathsMel May 8, 2017 at 7:43 pm

    The volume of the frustum is being calculated by subtracting the small cone from the large cone THEN once you have the volume of the frustum it be x 2.5

  99. Jill Lane May 8, 2017 at 8:46 pm

    An excellent resource, thanks.
    Just a quick note though on the proportion and reasons higher level the question about rice cakes the answer is incorrect, the value 3.29 has only been multiplied by 7.22 not 7.22222222222( it’s a recurring decimal) this makes quite a big difference to the answer which should be 29.761 calories per rice cake

    Cheers

  100. JustMathsMel May 8, 2017 at 9:12 pm

    ummm … it has been multiplied by 7.2 recurring … have checked the markscheme and the answer I’ve done is correct. 🙁

    Absolutely amazing resource. I cannot believe, however, the awful manners of some people – DEMANDING answers ASAP without so much as a ‘please;!!

    Thank you so much for all your fantastic work. 🙂

    Hello, on the Bidmas, powers and roots answers it says (2x)^2= 4x and so is not always greater than 2x. Surely it should be 4x^2? Which means that (2x)^2 is always greater than 2x?
