    Does anyone know how many marks I'd lose if I got the method correct but values wrong? E.g for moments question I got d=1.2m but to find m I accidentally used 1.2 when doing moments about A, the method was correct but due to accidentally using this my answer was wrong, I also did the same for implies question, got method correct but my value for deceleration was wrong as I did a=-1/8*0.4*g, completely forgot its 0.4a is equal to muR but everything else was fine on these examples, so how many marks would I roughly lose? Thanks

    Not too sure but they sometimes have ecf marks available (error carried forward), so if you make an initial mistake but the rest of the method is correct, you might not be penalised for the other parts

    will we lose one mark if we wrote 15.45 N instead of 15.5 N and another mark gone for 16.63 N instead of 16.6 N? A lot of people gave 2 decimal places
