I think paper 3 was the best! I totally forgot how to work out the area of a square based pyramid, but other than, and messed up the plan question near to the front of the paper, but other than that I think it went really well. I think I’ve probably got around 65, so hoping I’ve scraped an 8 overall (I think I’ve got around 180 overall).
I also didn’t attempt the final question (only wrote down 2 things) because I didn’t really have a clue and thought I’d get more marks by going over the other questions and fixing errors.
