If I got around 70-80 what will I need for an A* in the next paper think i got about 82 if im lûcky
i'd suppose if you picked up 5-10 more marks you'd be fine but if you were lucky then just do the same in the next and you''l be fine

Are these questions below foundation or higher? ?
Higher.
5. So... the last question. I think there were multiple ways to answer it and from what I have seen, nobody appears to have done it like me on this thread. Although my maths teacher said that I was correct and my friend got the same as me in the exam so I really don't know. I ended up with 1/4 - ((root(1/6)) / 6). Anyone else get similar and how did you go about it? I used the areas. I know it was only 3 marks but just for the bants.
6. The first question for the volume of a prison I'm sure was 3 marks not 2? Easiest 2/3 marks ever!
7. (Original post by caitlin_po)
i think that's roughly correct
I'm pretty sure they are lower than that. If not, I'm screwed!
8. GUYS PLS READ i got the correct coordinates for Q but i accidently wrote it in the wrong way round!! i wrote -2, -3 do you think my examiner will give me the mark? it was an ACCIDENT ;-;
9. for one of the questions the answer was 7/5 but i simplified down to 1.4 can I still get the mark for this?
10. For the floor vanishing question was it 7.5 x 5 = 35.5 ?? I got 35.5 and said it wasn't enough

Midpoint. I am so confused as to how that is the answer and not 3,4.75?
Because you are trying to find the midpoint not Q... I think!

For the question about the tiles I did a completely different method that everyone I've spoke to and came to the conclusion that :
No. because she has enough to cover 37.5m^2 but needs to cover 50m^2 so she's 12.5m^2 short
DID ANYONE GET ANYTHING SIMILAR // know if I will get any marks? I was pretty confident on that question lol
lol, that's what i put too im sure we would at least get full method marks

25(4-π) maybe?
It does, however you don't need to apparently according to that teachers unofficial mark scheme.
14. Is it okay that i wrote 100TT cm^2 - TT25 cm^2 instead of 100TT cm^2 -25 TTcm^2
15. And I thought this was meant to be in a %age of the entire £800 and not just the rent though i probably just misread lol
Spoiler:
Show

Question 11(?). What percent of his total spending is his rent now?

16. (Original post by Tyson12302)
Apparently its T = 5x + 20y.
I think i put T = x + 4y, which is the simplified form of 5x + 20y. Is that wrong?

I did not sit the paper - I will need the question information to be able to give you an answer.
Give me answer to the following question
Workout total number of teachers when the probability for female teacher is 3/5 and there are 36 male teachers? It would be my pleasure if u do that
18. I got 38 in the paper (round about) lol I am going to fail 😭
19. (Original post by alicerose.j)
How were we meant to do the distribution of the box plots question? I basically filled the whole space with writing, comparing range, IQ range and median. Were we supposed to work anything out??

Posted from TSR Mobile
You got the right points
You literally just have to write:
• range is greater for 18 year olds than 16 year olds
• interquartile range ""
• median is lower for 16 year olds than 18 year olds
20. how many marks would you say for a bare minimum C guys?
