I think it was a pretty difficult exam for everyone. Disappointed sine and cosine rule didn't come up
Same here, working out angles and lengths are the things I find easiest

I hope you're right, my teacher predicted me to get an A overall but I was 9 marks off an A in my T4 module, so i really need to work hard for T6
T6 has a bitta markup in it too, ull b grand

Yeah I agree, I was guaranteed they would since they do every year and they are pretty important but ccea hate us.

Make sure you know ur sectors, probability and surface areas and volumes; thats where the big marks are in t6

On the trig question it was like the angle between space diagnol and base, did u use the same trangle for the answer in the first questtion?

I used the triangle with side 10 and 48? I might be wrong though.
6. For the 2nd question, did u find the angle in the big triangle and then take it away from 90 and then work on from there in the wee triangle? See the 3rd question, was the answer 175/176 or something like that?

I cant mind but i know the triangle i had was the right angle and the angle was on the base ajacent and was connected by the hypotenuse

I had a few lessons with a maths tutor because my teacher wouldn't teach us anything after the T4 exam in January, it was awful! My tutor definitely helped, I just need to revise the formulas and stuff

Yea, even the sound of mechanics and statistics sounds bad lmao

Did you get 180-x for circle theorems because I'm pretty sure I'm wrong
