    i cancelled it down to 1-√6 / 4 (divided the three and 12 by 3)... Would that work..? The annoying thing is that i wrote the right answer (3-√6 /12) above it, but for some stupid reason i thought that i could simplify it further.. think I'll still get the mark for writing the correct answer even though my final answer was incorrect?
    You will get 2/3. And the cancelling was silly because your final answer was a negative value... for an area lmao

    For the crisps question, I wrote that the sample wouldn't be suitable as adults tend to go food shopping so adults would be a better target audience than the maths class do you think I would get the mark for that??

    What do you think the grade boundaries will be out of 200 for an A? I got roughly 63-70 on this and I'm just hoping it's around 130 rather than 139 like one of the years.

    eh if you get a nice examiner maybe, probably not though they're looking for something like sample size is too small, as a result it does not represent the general populous etc..

    No you can't cancel √6/3 to √2 that's ridiculous.

    Depends on calc and grade boundaries. Really you'd want to get 85+ on calc now for the A*, imo

    Yes if you only get around at least the same mark or 83 to ensure you get an A* in the calculator paper

    I put 0.7x10^9 instead of 7x10^8 for the standard form. But aren't both acceptable in standard form anyway...?
    I ****ed up on mine😂😭 I should have just simply divided 35 by 5 not 3.5 by 5 cause I sat there for 10 minutes trying to work out what 3.5 divided by 5 is when I should have just divided 35 by 5 and turn to decimal😭 I felt so dumb after the exam like I just wasted 10 minutes on what must be the easiest question ever and I turned it hard by my stupidness😂😭😭😭

    I'm generally better on calculator it's annoying though because I feel as if I knew enough for somewhere around 92

    What Are The predicted grade Boundaries?
    Also for 19 (a)(ii) I wrote 5.2 and -1.2 (which is 0.1 of actual answer). Will i still get marks?
    By The Way I am looking at 82 (85 if the question above gets me three marks). Will that be an A* and what mark would I need in calculator to secure an A*

    The grade boundaries my teachers are predicting is around the 164- 166 mark range out of 200 to get an A*

    Yup same here, expected to get 100/100, now worst case scenario 93/100, which is still pretty good, but I dropped a lot of stupid marks I shouldn't have.

    Estimated around 54 with harsh marking, do you think the grade boundaries will stay the same so it'll be a B?
