Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

Yeah I got 3.8 aswell
It was 3.8. I believe you would get marks as follows:

(1) correctly evaluated trial between 3 and 4
(1) correctly evaluated trial between 3.5 and 3.9
(1) correctly evaluated trial between 3.7 and 3.8
(1) 3.8 as the conclusion

I think i got that too. The angle was 75.
I went wrong by forgetting to double the radius!
Ah yes I did the same! Damn it what a silly mistake. Ah well we should still get some marks. I think we'll only lose 1 mark for that.

By last years standards, that would be a
B, but very close to an A (A is 145)

A is not 145, the highest it has ever been is 141, and usually its about 125-135 for an A
4. Is there a worked solutions paper?
5. (Original post by jamesM22)
Exactly. Since when do you count the 3.5? Never done that for trial and improvement. Always been what is closer
Bro your 100% right the answer is 3.7, not 3.8 this proves it, on this trial and improvement question, question 11.

Like you 3.7 is closer because when you take away the number from ti, it's closer than 3.8.

People that thinks the answer is 3.8 is wrong lol.

Your actually wrong the answer is in fact, 3.7, the evidence is right here on this old test paper go to question 11.

Lol you are so wrong lol, it's actually 3.7, go on the link question 11 i sent on a previous comment.
9. Hey guys, I was wondering when a thread for the foundation paper 2 mark scheme will be released or created. There a lot of students who are really eager to find out what their answers were and whether they were correct. There seems to be a lot of thread for the higher tier maths paper 2 , but not for foundation. I'd really appreciate if someone could create one.

I hope you all did well with whatever tier exam you did...GOOD LUCK ON RESULTS DAY!
👊🏻😉

Sorry, but the answer is in fact 3.8 because when you put the 3.75 in to the calculation the answer is smaller than the one the question was looking for, therefore the number should be rounded up to 3.8 to give the correct answer to 1 d.p.

Please ask your maths teacher, then hopefully you will realise why it is 3.8. You clearly do not understand the rounding up/ rounding down process

He does understand it. There are two different methods for trial and improvement. One involved 3.75 and the other doesn't. Both are usually accepted in the mark scheme so I can't see why they won't both be this time.

16. Marking really harshly, I got 67 and 74 which equals to 141. Is that enough for an A?!?!?

Yes, but only just. If you've marked harshly. You are above the kind of stuck on mark. What I mean by this is that sometimes the exam board are harsh in that they put the grade boundary just higher than the mark that most people of that grade got. For example, in Nov 2015, me and several other people from my school got marks between 163 and 166 and the grade boundary for A* was 167. But 141 is well above this. Good luck! Nothing's for certain.

I agree that there are two (and more) methods but they all give the final answer 3.8 !!!

That's where you're incorrect. Completing the number line method gives you 3.7 due to the value of this being closer to 34 than that of 3.8.

20. I shouldn't be doing this so early on a Saturday
