Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Anyone else do the WJEC paper one exam today for maths?

2. I did! How did you find it? I thought it wasn't that bad. Any ideas on boundaries?
3. I messed up.
Kill me now.
we were taught up to grade B so I couldn't do any A work at all.
UGhhhhhh.

I'm quite happy with a couple of questions but a lot of it was just uncertain.
For example, the one where you had to use the cumiliative frequency graph and write down the frequency, i wasn't too sure about that one, but did it anyway
4. If it's the Unit 1 Higher you're talking about then yes I did do it and found it was ok thought that most of the questions were fairly easy but q13. the one on arc length was difficult, and most others required a lot of thought and reading the question over and over. And in reply to 'killmenow' previous grade boundaries have been about 80 percent A star, 60-65 A, 50 ish B and 35 there or there abouts for a C. I will say that grade boundaries change every year based on the average marks people had, so if this is regarded as a particularly easy paper, the C grade boundary could go up to 50 percent. Hope this helps
5. I thought the exam was okay I think about 95% hopefully, what did everyone get for:
Angle of x in the eight marker and length of xcm in the seven marker???
I got 111 and 10...
