    86/100 I hope.
    Xou should be 'A'.
    Hmm, maybe I can push it to an A*, hopefully. Thanks
    for your reply though.

    I got the same mark between that range, hopefully for the sake of us two that will have a moderately of strong chance of helping us get an A* overall. You will probably need 86 in the calculater paper to secure an A*, just in case they do not lower the grade boundaries. But good luck mate!
    Hopefully mate, good luck!
    Calculator better be my *****.

    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?)
    depending on grade boundaries ~70-75 imo

    Q4 is -5+10

    and Q6 is 90, 54 is the amount of females, they wanted to total amount of people.
    I swear at this moment i have literally rushed the paper my score after all this is 79. I read all the questions wrong, i got the harder questions write at least. But i thought it wanted females lol as well, i'm bringing a highlighter to the exam next time lmao

    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 😕


    Oh my gosh me too!!! I lost so many marks because I didn't simplify the fractions and I rotated clockwise. Now I think I'm getting 87 I really want an A*

    For Q2, if I have drawn in line 'x = -1' but not labelled it as 'x= -1' will I lose a mark?

    Why is question 13 36% instead of 50%

    30% of 800= 240+20%of 800=160
    240+160=400
    400 is 50% of 800

    400 is 50% of 800

    30% of 800 = 240

    20% of 240 = 48

    240+48 = 288

    as a fraction of 800, so it would be 288/800 = 36/100 = 36%

    Ya get me fam?
