    cosine rule- 2 sides known and included angle known
    Ah okay thanks!

    What about SOHCAHTOA? or if you're given just sides or angles?

    all three sides, use cosine rule
    cosA= b^2 + c^2 - a^2
    2bc

    you wont be given a triangle with no side lengths as then lengths could be anything

    SOHCAHTOA - use with any right angled triangles

    I believe a C is normally around 80/200 (40%)

    I feel mixed about this exam. I'm going for an A* as was 4 marks off
    Last time. However looking at the preliminary mark scheme I think I
    got between 86- 92 marks. Depending on how generous they are for
    working. I just wonder do you all think this in enough and therefore what
    kind of grade boundaries we looking at.

    They'll be fine for A* bro, I got 1 off one time but was surprised that I didn't get it comfortably. Oh well, gotta ace it this time!

    I reckon I got around 40 marks on this paper, give or take a few marks.
    I got a C in March and am aiming for a B or even an A (although I highly doubt that's possible) so what do you reckon I need to get on Friday to get a B?
    Also, what topics shall I focus on more in order to get an A?

    You keep your best grade. No matter what, you keep your best grade.

    However, It will come up on your record you took a resit but nonetheless, you keep your best grade.

    Thank you! I got a B last time so it's all good!

    Need to work my ass off for that A* overall
    Got around 83-85 in non-calc, so if anyone could predict the grade boundaries or what I need to get in calc would be greatly appreciated.
