    I know u have use the equation to find the orbital speed. Did everyone get 179 km per hour for the speed?
    That sounds way too slow man also just searched Google and it was 100,000+

    That was what I was thinking. I can't tell if it was 179 km/hour because I think that the orbital radius was 250000km, however, another person told me it gave the circumference as 1500000km and so it would be 17000 km/hour which seems more correct. I can't remember which one I wrote down. If you are certain that the orbital radius they gave was 250000km and the time period was 365 days, then yes it was.

    What do u think the g bounds will be around?

    The circumference was definitely 1.5 x 10^6 km (1,500,000km)

    I reckon the grade boundary will be 143 to 146 for Paper 1 & 2, so that will be around 95 - 97 for just paper 1, but you can still get the A* if you do really well in the paper 2.

    Same as usual: 75% for an A*.

    Saying that it was the snow/sky for 12)a) and c) is incorrect, it was asking for the individual parts of the bear, so the eyes and the nose

    but it was km/hr so didnt you have to convert 365 days to hours

    No it just asked for the objects. There were 3: the sky, snow and bear. But I also commented about the bear incase.

    So it was just you and me who put the poll for 95% up.

    Ah no I read the question wrong. So 150000000 was the circumference and not the radius.

    Nah I put down for 90-94 because I probably lost 2 or 3 in that whole question.

    81.6%, you might get an A or an A* depending on what the boundary is set at. Over the last few years it's averaged around 82% so you might be lucky!

    I'm not sure, at it was 1,500,000. One of the questions gave it as 250,000km as the radius.
