    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?

    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!!!

    I wouldn't worry much about the questions with the * next to it since there's multiple ways of working out
