Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. What Are The predicted grade Boundaries?
Also for 19 (a)(ii) I wrote 5.2 and -1.2 (which is 0.1 of actual answer). Will i still get marks?

3. Can somome explain why the co-ordinates of x^2 -4x-6=0 is (-1.1,-5.1) instead of (0.4,-4.4)
4. Could question 25 be cancelled down to (1-√2)/4 ?

13. I wrote A = 25 pi for the question about the shaded region but I couldn't do anything else, would I get one mark for that? Also, for the part b of the vectors question I wrote b-a instead of -a+b is that still correct?

for the small/big envelope question, would you not simplify it down from 20y to 5y and 5x to x to become 5y+x=T ?
