also interested

Wht about the one about getting a certain amount of money back in a percentage??
I got 1.7% 😐
You have to take away the total percentage from 100 at the end

That's what I got I think
4. I'm being very pessimistic about the maths tests right now. I know I dropped more marks on the non-calc, I'm hoping the grade boundary for an A* is around 165.
5. what did everyone get for the spider one and the prism?

I'm pretty sure you use Pythagoras to work out A to M and then you times it by two, can't remember the numbers though.

I think it was like 48 degrees
15. Agh! I totally flapped on the bearings one and took it as an isosceles triangle with the bottom ones both being 15 degrees each and now looking at the worked solution I feel like an idiot. I think it was highly marked though so hopefully because I used the sine rule but with the wrong numbers, I'll still get method marks :-) Other than that question the rest of the test was a whizz and normally I'm worse at calc compared to non-calc.
16. yeah i got 1.7% and 48 for circle theorem but for bearing i messed up the angles and got 217km 😅 i still used the sine rule so hopefully i will get method marks!

i did exactly what you did on the bearings!

I didn't speak to anyone at my school who understood the question so I'm guessing not many will have picked up marks on it Glad to know a lot of us are in the same boat though
19. What did people get for the sin graph one
20. 1.7%?
