    how did people do the second construction question? the one where it had point P and you needed to make the perpendicular bisect of it and the line or whatever

    Correct.



    the first part of the question was reflection, and the second part was rotating anticlockwise.

    for question 15, I only compared the interquartile range and median (with evidence and data from the box plot)..would I only get 2 out of 3 marks?
    Yeah I would imagine so. DW though 2 marks is better than nothing.

    I think that i got 78 (lowest possible mark) how much more would i need for an A*? and grade boundary predictions?
    In the 2013 and 2014 papers, the grade boundaries were around 165/200 for an A*. 2015 was considerably lower at 155/200 so I think this paper might be around 160/200, judging on how most people found it...that's what I'm hoping for!

    Hi, I know I've asked a similar question before but I think I got around 86/88 in this paper and I just want to ensure that it's possible for me to get an A* as I really want it. Could someone please confirm this, Do you think I'd be fine?

    A kid probably didnt turn up for the exam, or s/he just scanned the copy and filled it in.

    Q4 expand and simplify is 10 + m

    Q6 is 54
    Q4 is -5+10

    and Q6 is 90, 54 is the amount of females, they wanted to total amount of people.

    someone replied to me and said that I'd still get the three? I'm not sure. When we did it previously in class, my teacher stated to just use the median and interquartile range when comparing box plots.

    How do you think you did on the exam?

    You defninitely still can! Another similar performance or 90+ will most likely be an A*

    I got 68 out of 100. What grade would that be? And could I possibly get an A* with both papers combined?
    last year it was 125/200 for an A and 155/200 for an A* so you need 87 in paper 2 for an A* but last years grade boundaries were pretty low and most people found the exam quite easy, so i expect the grade boundaries will be higher this year, maybe 160 for an A* or something

    Thanks, that makes me feel better. I usually tend to better in calculator papers.

    If I got 65 on this, what would you say I need on the calculator for an A overall? (What do you think the grade boundaries will be?)
