This is the (new) newly established home for Foundation Mathematics exam errors. The guidelines are given on the Methods error post, and there is also a Specialist error post, and a (now renamed) General error post (with unchanged link). As with General Maths, I will not look much at the Foundation exams, only posting errors as they are brought to my attention.

**2023 Exam (No exam yet, discussed here)**

**MCQ13 **The key to the graph is confusing, and wrong. Some indication that “payment” and “interest” are cumulative had to be included.

**Q1(c)** There are two methods of working out the percentage increase, which give different answers. One method is unlikely to have been considered by students, but this still should not occur.

**Q2(e)** The question makes zero sense, since it assumes that a person cannot play both a ball sport and a non-ball sport. The question also fails to specify the percentage is of females participating in a sport.

**Q6 **An awfully written question, throughout confusing usage with market share. There is probably only one plausible way to answer the questions, but this is teaching Not Maths.

**Q6(a) **The 2022 percentages in the graph do not total to 100%. This in itself is ok, but it leads to two potential answers to (a); one answer is unlikely to be given, but this still should not occur. The graph should have been appropriately labelled.

**Q11 **The outer rectangle on the diagram doesn’t mean anything and was probably actively confusing.
