    What grade would be 70+ marks on both papers combined?
    Also for the non calc paper, question 3c would i get a mark if i wrote its better to ask in a store rather then maths class to find out how many crisp people buy?
    70+ would be an comfortable A. I suppose it depends on your examiner, the whole point of that question was to mention bias and how it's a small sample as he is only asking his friends when he needs to ask people from all ages and backgrounds.

    Sorry i meant 70+ marks in total lol, so does that mean i lose a mark on question 3c non calculator?

    On question 3a, i put there was no time frame (week,month etc) and 'often' was repeated two times in the question and answer boxes would i both marks?

    Nothing is certain but a very strong B is most likely.

    It's all speculation. It was a very fair paper. You will not be far off and hopefully you will sneak in. It is surprising how marks add up in questions when you show working but do not get the final answer hence I would hope you will sneak a few more marks. Accept that you will get a B and if you get the A, you will feel great.

    Good luck with all your grades !!

    do they add the marks of both papers together and then work out the ums or add the ums together?

    There is no ums in linear qualifications.
    They add your raw marks together from the two papers and compare your total to the grade boundaries that they have decided in order to work out your grade.

    Yes that is correct. I was implying 70 on each paper which would total to 140.

    Definitely an A, and it could be an A* depending on the grade boundaries. Good luck!
