    What would i get out of 6 for the last one if i only got to 40.0 degrees.
    I got 39.9 but apparently (according to unofficial mark scheme) it's not correct. I'm trying to find out how many marks I would have got as well. I revoking we would get method marks.

    I messed up pretty hard, worst case scenario I'll get 177/200. Think that'll be enough for an A*?

    Will 140 be the highest it can be or is it going to be 140 ? Thanks. I just hope I get an A. I asked my friend and he said no. Why the **** can I not get a straight answer ?

    Yeah an A in definitely not going to be above 135. The highest it's been these last few years is 133

    That should definitely be an A*

    I'm not sure about that, I was looking at some past paper grade boundaries and the majority seem to be around 165 for an A*.

    If I get unlucky and get 158 it could very well only be an A.

    For the trial and improvement one my few ids were saying they got 3.7 but I got 3.8 and I was 100% sure that was right?

    When you did 3.75 the answer was too low, so you round it up because the solution must be closer to the 3.8.

    Thank you so much. I love you ( if you're right ) I've worked my balls off and I'm really hoping for an A.

    Hi I'm going to start and unofficial markscheme so add your answers
    Reps are not necessary but would be appreciated


    7. Trial and error. x^3-5x=34 with a number between 3 and 4
    3.8
    X3-5x=34.
    Assuming X=3.7 would give an answer of 32.153, its difference from 34 being 1.847. However, assuming X=3.8 would yield an answer of 35.872, its difference from 34 being 1.872. Since the difference between 34 and the value of X as being 3.7 is smaller than the value at 3.8, X=3.7.
    Hope this helps.
