Hannah will deffo be back with more sweets
Lmao, I hate those probability questions. Always mess with my mind .
4. Presuming I don't spectacularly cock up, I think it's going to certainly be an A*.

In fact, come laugh at my levels of stupidity:
Spoiler:

Exhibit A - After some working, I arrive at the answer of 14:15 (the correct answer). I write 2:45 pm in the answer space (yet oddly enough, that would've counted according to my teacher).

Exhibit B - After rationalising the denominator to arrive at 10(root-5) / 5, not only do I forget to simplify, I put the square root sign back on the 5.

Exhibit C - I misread "QUESTION 22 IS WORTH 3 MARKS" as "THE TEST IS WORTH 100 MARKS". The worst part is that there were 3 more questions after, and if I had answered them, I would've got an A*. This happened in the mock, yes, you heard me, IN THE MOCK (B also happened in the mock as well, A was just a past paper we did in class).
