    Nice one mate, problem is it asked for an integer, and it was 3/4 as the gradient because you got the formula wrong. It didn't ask for y=mx+c it asked for ax+by=c so keep it up
    what if i only wrote 2 without working out will how much out of 3 will they give me ?

    and the gradient q i did it correct but i didnt re arrange it and x it by 4 how how many mark will i get out of 4 ? thankks

    No.. Grade B will most likely be 44% (43-46 - I'd say). But if you look at previous years, a B has never been above 46 and this was a 'difficult' paper which may be seen as unfair for some (due to the quantity of 5 mark questions).
    An A will probably be around 60 to 65% and you're probably right about an A* being 80.

    Judging by the fact last year was the hardest paper ever set and nothing like it will never be set again.... No

    maybe i am just dumb but i was predicted an a* and i found it so difficult. i reckon i got about 70% probably if I'm lucky, they really went for it with the hard questions : (

    Same here dude but that meant the volume was smaller than surface area, which isn't possible I don't think

    true, but i think the general consensus is it was a lot harder than usual (possibly because of being the last year of the current grading system)
