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

Were you here for the debate earlier?
Nope, but I am sure as more and more people respond to the thread the more discrepancies will arise.
2. I did aswell, we both did sin-1 instead of cos-1

it is almost entirely pointless taking November grade boundaries into account, most schools submit their most able students for early entry maths therefore the A/A* boundaries are almost always exceptionally high. If you just consider the June boundaries, the average is 161.
I don't know about that, my whole year was put in to do it in November.

I did it, is there a mark scheme for it?
not that i know of
5. I got around 160/200 overall - what grade do you think this is?

I'm thinking its a high A or low A* depending on grade boundaries.
6. I got roughly 54 in this paper and about 55 or 57 in the other,what grade would this be overall

I would assume a B, as I believe last year it was 98 for a B
9. Anyone got the foundation paper mark scheme? I and everyone else doing foundation would highly appreciate it. Cheers
10. For question 1b would I still get the marks for 9/20? I did put it as a percentage too but I only put 9/20 in the answer box.
11. Heey,
I got exactly the same... please explain it if 40.0 was wrong
I rearranged the formula?
12. Can anyone show me the work solution for question 20? 3x^2+6x-2
13. can someone explain question 15, the car depreciation as i got the answer as yes?
There will be a range for Q25 considering the values were very long and many people might have rounded and not typed the whole version in. Plus different calculators will cut the answer off. I got 80.4 but there will be a range.
Yeah I used the answer button and wrote down one other working fully. My final calculator answer was 80.4755... To three significant figures it's 80.48 as the 0 is not a significant figure.
15. Hoping boundaries are low. A* may go up to 160+ but hoping it stays low.

16. Anyone got foundation mark scheme?
17. I had 0.22 as well!!

QUOTE=Gamer_44;65593879]Might be wrong, however, I think it may have been the small packet as the unit cost was something like 0.22222 whereas the others were higher?[/QUOTE]

0 is considered a significant figure when between digits. However, you would not be penalised for leaving the answer to 2dp.

Me

what was ur answer? I got the right answer but i wrote yes for some reason, lol, silly me. but if you made the same mistake its because 7500 and under would mean the car depreciated by 50% as it costed 15000. If it was over this price, it was not as low as half yet.
