    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😂😭😭😭
    Aw! Yeah I wished I didn't do decimals that way I would have got it right but oh well hopefully we'll get one mark!

    You'll get 2 method marks for 1/4 - √6/12

    and 1/4 - √6/12 = 0.045875854768068491816892993774 509050669504376611944155963
    Ahh ok thanks, that puts me on 88.


    So annoyed that the most of the marks I dropped apart from that were because of stupid mistakes..

    2 marks lost on the rotation (I turned clockwise)
    2 marks lost on reflection (reflected using y=-1 not x=-1)
    4 marks lost on the proportion question (no idea how I forgot the whole 'k' thing)
    1 mark on a solving quadratics question because I put it in two brackets but forgot the "so x= ? Or x=?" somehow :/

    If I paid attention I'd have got 97 😕

    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.
    it probs be 140 for A

    Do you think they will accept a small range of answers for the quadratic graph question ? e.g x = -1.0 to -1.2 for 19 (b)

    You can do it, try make up the marks in calculator paper to secure the B

    Do you think the calculator paper will be much harder? I scored around 64-69 on this and I'm going to have to score around 72-73 on calculator to bump it up to a secure A.

    Good. I think that the numbers I got were around the ones in this thread but I am not sure if they are the exact same.

    1/3, you didn't factorise and didn't get the correct answers.
