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

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

soh cah toa -
3. 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
4. I got 94% ish on the non calulator- what do i need at a minimum to get on the calculator to achieve an a*

I believe a C is normally around 80/200 (40%)
7. Nah it's a lot less than that, it's like 60 - 65 marks on average
8. 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.
9. im really scared because i think i have flopped the non-calc exam i just need to ppass my maths gcse this time any advise for calc exam?

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!
11. do you reckon the examiners are going put the grade boundaries low? because some students found the non- calc exam hard
12. I reckon u'll need at least 63- 65 to get a c.

Probably 70-75 % minimum
16. who prefers non-calc paper than calc?
17. Predicted boundary for an A grade?

18. 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?

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!
20. 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.
