2. ****in hell. marked what i thought i got. am generous marker. got 52. so take anywhere 10-20 marks f and it is right. couldnt see some of the marks for each question so i guessed them
3. Do i have to show any workings for the T = 5x + 20y question or do i get full marks for just putting the answer?

last years was
A* = 155/200
A = 125/200
B = 95/200
C = 65/200
D = 35/200
E = 20/200
If the next exam is hard:
A* - 157/200
A - 128/200
B - 94/200
C - 66/200
IF the next exam is EASY then it would be:
A* - 160/200
A - 129/200
B - 98/200
C - 69/200
So if i got 85 marks on this paper, will i only need a minimum of around 75/76 to get an A* in the next paper?
5. What do you think the grade boundaries for A& A* might be? They'll be quite high as it was easier right?

No workings needed for it.

120% of 30
The question said the rent was raised by 20% from 30% so you had to find 20% of 30% which is 6%. You thenn add the 6 back onto the original 30 to get 36%

It is never been that high for a grade c; usually around 25/30
That's what I thought exactly!

I think it was: find the shaded area, side lengths were both root 2 over 2, then the fraction of one side was root 3 over 3. I got 3 - root 6 over 12
Oh my god----- I wrote that, but then I thought ''what if I can simplify'' so I divided the 12 by the 3 and the 3 by 3 so what I wrote in the answer line was 1-root 6 over 4 oh my gosh I'm so annoyed!!! Should've just left it!!!
10. How many marks would be a secure A on this paper?
11. (Original post by HaseebLone)
Is there a link to it> Or have u not started to create it yet??
I haven't started to create it as nobody has given me any answers.

75+
13. I wouldn't worry much about the questions with the * next to it since there's multiple ways of working out
14. (Original post by Azzam240)
I got 81 with harsh marking! What would the A* boundary be?????
people we're thinking 83 in both papers

16. is question 18, the fraction questions. didn't they ask to write it as a mixed number?

Thats an estimate but i would say u need about 80 just incase

Start a foundation thread, if you haven't already? Not going to find many foundation-ers in the higher thread ;/
