1. Hey, this sounds like an easy 2 mark question but i just can't find a way to solve the answer..

Question 1 part 4!

The question is: The minimum mark for grade A (the top grade) on Paper1 was 10 marks lower than the minimum mark for grade A in paper2. Given that 25 students gained a grade A in P1, find the number of candidates that got an A in P2

Thanks...

Well exam is on the 24th of may and i am still learning the material and just doing the easy questions

S1 sucks and it's so boring..
4. start by finding (reading off the graph) what the minimum required mark for an A on paper 1 was.

Hint: you know 25 people got a A on that paper
