Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
1. (Original post by HateOCR)
My estimate of this years non-calc grade based on past paper difficulty and grade boundaries:
A* - 84
A - 72
B - 63
C - 48
D - 40
That's way too high! a B will probably be around 48 not a C!
2. I cried when I came out of that exam I really hate maths
3. (Original post by potato princess)
am I the only one for the varnish question that did 7.5 x 5 = 37.5???
I did that the first time round, but then I decided to work out how many cans are needed just to make sure.
4. What would 68/100 be grade wise?
5. (Original post by _JustAStudent_)
One of the questions you missed was about the envolpes, where there was 5 in the small pack and 20 in the large and you had to right T in term in x and , i think? I can't remember the entire question
i have no idea, i put something like T = x + 3y
What would 68/100 be grade wise?
an A

Give me the question
Its the percentage and that rent question
8. (Original post by Al111uz)
Work out how much money the rent cost in pounds by finding 30% of 800, increase this value by 20%, then use this as a fraction (I think it was 288/800). Divide top and bottom by 8 to get 36/100, which is 36%
yes i remember now thank you

I disagree, relatively speaking I think it was much easier than other past papers in recent years.

Solving simultaneous equations graphically

-6,2 ???

Hi, u know for the maths class question I said it's not representative of the whole population, would u still get the mark? And also I think u missed out the spinner question, the one where the guy spun it 300times, I said the answer is 60.
Would still get the mark, yes. I have now included the spinner question, thanks.
12. anyone explain how they done the fraction questions please?
13. Where are predictions for the calculator paper taking these questions into consideration??
14. If I got around 70-80 what will I need for an A* in the next paper think i got about 82 if im lûcky
15. I thought for question 16 it would have to be 0.7 X 10^9 as standard form has to be as a decimal doesn't it?

I believe this is right. Can I use it in the main post please?
Yes you may permission granted thanks for asking first.

Its the percentage and that rent question
I did not sit the paper - I will need the question information to be able to give you an answer.
18. I got 72 for the Circle Theorems one, and Root3 - Root2 for the last one. All in all a very good paper, one of the easiest I've ever done, reckon I got about 90 odd marks. Max I lost 10 marks.
19. What do you think about the reason that his class Is not suitable being that his class will not be proportionate to the population e.g. Only teenagers meaning they may buy more/less crisps than the average?
20. For the fractions question what was the initial question, and if you didn't cancel one of the fractions down do u loose marks?
