1. When I worked out the difference between them it was 1.872 difference for the 3.8 and for 3.7 the difference was 1.847, so surely 3.7 is closer??

thats not how you do trial and improvement

3.8 is closer

solution of x is not 3.75 because 3.75 is too small for x, so its after 3.75 which rounds to 3.8

i dont know why i have a feeling the grade boundaries are going to be lower because of the first non-calulator paper. i feel i did a lot better in the calculator paper but im not sure if it was enough to get an A. i really dont want a B but i just dont know. i think it may be around 115-120/200. (hopefully).
You definitely got a B

A will be like 135, 130-140

These were the easiest papers I have seen in the recent years.
But.. i made those stupid mistakes :/

I got 60 in paper 1 and 74-77 in paper 2 do u guys reckon that an A ???
Very high B or low A. Most likely low A if the marks you said are right

What will be the grade boundaries for a B? I know last year it was 95, will it be higher?
95-100 I think (or 90-105)

B is in the middle of them

10. b. Write are one fraction in its simplest for (x/x-1)- (x/x+1)2x/(x+1)(x-1) (3 marks)
If I managed to cross multiply and get 2x but made a small error on the dominator will I still get 1 mark for the correct numerator

You'll definitely get a mark for 2x. I can't say for sure but I think 168/200 for an A* 135 for an A?

You may have just scraped an A. I really do hope you get it. I'm doing maths, economics, biology and chemistry, what about you?

In 2015 an A was 125 does like 134 seem likely judging by the pattern in the table ?
19. On the circle theorem question would I get 2 marks for doing 90-48=42 and staying angles btween a tangent and radius are 90 ??

Our exam was definitely easier

I'm saying 135-140 for A for us (maybe 130-140) - but it probably won't be as high as 140, but that's the 'safe' mark that you got an A
