Didn't you use the 'Area of a triangle using sine' formula?

Ah, that's cool then.

btw, you get marks for 'CORRECT' substitutions, but I think you still might get a mark for each formula,if you use the correct one, even if your numbers are incorrect. (Just talking logically)

btw, I think you told me you were gonna ask your teacher what he/she thinks the grade boundaries would be, did you? (I think it was you, may have been someone else)

they said that an increase of more than 8 marks from last year would be quite extreme

Well, that was a rather subtle answer

8 marks means 163, coz it was 155 last year, seems legit.

14. Hi guys, a bit late I know but I have a query for Q17 on this thread. So the answer is X = 30.1 which is correct, however as shown in the stages I left my answer as 60.1 (god sake) So... how many marks would I probably get considering it was out of 4? 2? 3? Thanks Guys in advance.

Hi Hamza I was just gonna ask for Q17 how many marks would I get out of 4 if I left my answer as 60.1 and didn't change it to 30.1. 2 marks? 3 marks?

Sorry it's been a long time so I'd have to look at the acc question again, I don't have the time rn but keep in mind, whatever I say will only be an assumption

Fair enough. It was just the question which uses the SOHCAHTOA rule with the triangle and it asked you to find the angle. I accidentally left it as the whole thing which was shown in the last step, so i would be expecting 2-3 marks/4

Yeah, 2-3 marks sounds about right to me, because you did use the formula(e), and did the wokings etc.
19. Just wondering does anyone have the link to this paper with the solutions?

The paper and its mark scheme can be found on a website called paper-cut. Hope this helps.
