Grade C 68 !!! No way they need to lower this !!

Prediction
[/QUOTE]

That's a terrible prediction! The general consensus is that this has been an extremely difficult test, meaning the grade boundaries will be lowered accordingly. A more realistic prediction would be:
D - 34
C - 59
B - 95
A - 128
A* - 159

That was by far the hardest paper I've ever done, I need A, which for this paper is probably about 65 marks, but I feel I've done absolutely terrible, maybe even going as low as the high 50s😭. Good luck anyway.

15. For the, triangle one i wrote 25 as I thought it was a straight line so i added them together and took away 180. I did say it was a straight line and that = 180. Would I get any marks?

you will probably get 1 mark because you said straight line = to 180
