86/100 I hope.
Xou should be 'A'.
Hmm, maybe I can push it to an A*, hopefully. Thanks

I got the same mark between that range, hopefully for the sake of us two that will have a moderately of strong chance of helping us get an A* overall. You will probably need 86 in the calculater paper to secure an A*, just in case they do not lower the grade boundaries. But good luck mate!
Hopefully mate, good luck!
Calculator better be my *****.

If I got 65 on this, what would you say I need on the calculator for an A overall? (What do you think the grade boundaries will be?)
depending on grade boundaries ~70-75 imo

Q4 is -5+10

and Q6 is 90, 54 is the amount of females, they wanted to total amount of people.
I swear at this moment i have literally rushed the paper my score after all this is 79. I read all the questions wrong, i got the harder questions write at least. But i thought it wanted females lol as well, i'm bringing a highlighter to the exam next time lmao

Ahh ok thanks, that puts me on 88.

So annoyed that the most of the marks I dropped apart from that were because of stupid mistakes..

2 marks lost on the rotation (I turned clockwise)
2 marks lost on reflection (reflected using y=-1 not x=-1)
4 marks lost on the proportion question (no idea how I forgot the whole 'k' thing)
1 mark on a solving quadratics question because I put it in two brackets but forgot the "so x= ? Or x=?" somehow :/

If I paid attention I'd have got 97 😕

Oh my gosh me too!!! I lost so many marks because I didn't simplify the fractions and I rotated clockwise. Now I think I'm getting 87 I really want an A*
6. Todays exam was hard dont know what some of you guys are on about ....

cheers brooo
18. Why is question 13 36% instead of 50%

30% of 800= 240+20%of 800=160
240+160=400
400 is 50% of 800

30% of 800= 240+20%of 800=160
240+160=400
400 is 50% of 800

30% of 800 = 240

20% of 240 = 48

240+48 = 288

as a fraction of 800, so it would be 288/800 = 36/100 = 36%

Ya get me fam?
