    well i assume you work out all of the totals of the bars on the histogram then divide by how many there are? Not sure.
    thats not the mediean, thats the mean.

    I think you add up all the frequencies then divide by 2 and count along the frequency bar until you get to the class that you are looking for eg 40 (total frequency) then divide by 2 then go down the classes and see where it fits, because it's GCSEs they won't make it difficult our teacher said so then look on the histogram and count up from the class to see where the number fits it's difficult explaining like this so if you still don't get it just ask your teacher. Hope I helped 🤔

    Does anyone know if I'll get any marks for this?
    Q5) I did 900/18 to get 50
    Q8) I did 300/80 which is 3.75, I rounded this to 4 and then did 4 x 16 to get 64

    Q9. I put 1/4x + y, which is the same as 5x + 20y, but just shortened down. Would I get any marks for this?

    Q15. For question 15, I compared the median, the least values and the biggest values . Would this get 3 marks?!

    1/4x+y =/= 5x+ 20y

    And you're supposed to compare median / average and upper and lower quartile values.

    for the 5x + 20y I simplified to 5(x + 4y), would that be correct?

    Hello! For question 15, I compared the interquartile range and the lower quartile and the highest values on the box and whisker plots but I didn't compare the median, how many marks would I get???!!!

    On the circle theorem question, I put angles at a tangent = 90 degrees, would I get at least a mark for that? I also put something about an isosceles triangle, I did really badly on this paper ngl....

    Out of 100 or 200?
    48/100 would be very close to B.

    What would 48 marks be as a grade?
    48 marks out of 200 (both papers combined) would be a D.
    48 marks out of 100 would be half way from a B and around 20 marks from a C.

    Good luck everyone for tomorrow. Just scored 88-90/100 in a couple of past papers, hopefully I can score near enough the same in the actual test!

    how high will the grade boundaries for a c be this year?
    It was very complicated for me and there was no correlation stem and leaf diagram or cumulative frequency!
    It's so unfair because those would've garanteed atleast 15 marks

    Steam and leaf can still come up tomorrow as well as cumulative frequency.
    I think it was an average paper so the 'C' grade will be 35 out of 100.

    You did nothing wrong, so you'll get two marks.
