I've dropped 8 cuz I'm stoooopid feels bad man.
Ahhh I know man, all the marks I ever drop on maths tests are for stupid reasons, and what I really hate is when I come out and realise I actually could have answered it easily!

The probability of it not raining in June and the match not being cancelled.
0.04 doesn't make much sense.
Yep I believe it was 0.8*0.95 = 0.76
3. could you please put the marks next to each answer fo the higher answes, thanks
4. How many marks will i have dropped for these answers;
75TT (did have 100-25TT written down) but didnt think to leave it like that.
0.4 for the probability one.
Table of values- 1, 0.25, 0.4.
Read the scalar wrong for the vector and did 1/3 (a +b).
For the x and Y question with the quadratic. I did y= 6 +x (instead of -x) and drew a straight line and found 2 points of interception going through the curved parabola.

Yea I flopped so hard on question 23. I don't know what was going through my head. I'll probably pick up 2 marks for method though.

7. For the circle theorem, I got it wrong but I wrote

-Angles in triangle = 180
-Isosceles triangle so two sides are same
180 - 48(2) = 84
How many marks would this get?..

It did award that, but I'm worried that if I create one then people will take it too literally and panic. I might anyhow in a bit.

And yes, there was a question, but I can't quite remember the number and that's what's troubling me.

Thanks anyhow!
Yes i put how often do you buy crisps in a week?
Is that right?
and class intervals:
0-1 time
2-5
6-10
more than 10 times
9. what was the answer for the last question and the simultaneous questions
10. I got 100-25pi in the question.

However stupid me didn't think it was that easy and that it was in its simplest form so I put 75pi as my final answer.

However all my working out was correct and the answer is in my working out.

But the answer i put in the box is wrong.

How many marks will I loose?

I got 1cm for the last question oh well
Also I thought the circle theorem question was an alternate angle question?

I think the envelope question was T= 5x + 20y but I have no idea why it was 3 marks
i got 1cm too :/ hopefully get some marks for workings out

OMG so i wasted 30 mins trying to figure out the exact figure and then wrote down 0.50?!
damn daniel 30 minutes is a loooooong time

Yep I believe it was 0.8*0.95 = 0.76
But the question was not raining (0.8) and match IS cancelled (0.05) so it's 0.04

17. For the circle and square question, I wrote

10 X 10 = 100CM"2
Area of circle = PIE R"2
