If you didn't work out the value with X=3.75 you won't get full marks even if you've chosen the correct answer
Thats exactly what i got, that is correct some people say 3.8 is answer which is incorrect

I have a question. It's okay if I used 3.142 as pie for the last question? I got close to 80.4. I think I got 81.1 as my answer to 1dp. Would vI still get some marks. ( I showed the working out)

The paper usually says you can use 3.142 as pi.

Hence, you would get Method Marks and will lose out on the Accuracy Mark(s) if you still rounded in the middle of calculations.
4. Will the completed paper be uploaded like the non-calculator was, because I cant really remember any of the questions so it would be helpful to see the full paper?

Not a solid B. It is borderline C/B. If the grades do not go up from 98 in the last exam It will be a B.

11. What were the 2 lengths making up the 15.6 length on the triangle?

It was a frequency density question you had to divide the frequency by the mid interval value

No, it was the volume mass and density question with the bars.
14. 25. Triangle with side lengths 7 and 8 finding the top angle using 1/2absinC , sine rule and cosine rule

That's four significant figures, but they don't usually deduct marks for this.
