looking through this mark scheme i think i would be able to get around 55 marks which 100% secured my B grade in Maths

Not bad. I got between 88 and 93 percent.
4. (Original post by Rxkaa)
Yes as 45%=0.45=9/20

chill ,cheers
5. the area of a triangle is 1/2 x a x b x sin(c). so you rearrange it to find sin(c) and then inverse sine it to find the angle on the left. then you i used the cosine rule to find out the length of the side opposite to the angle you just worked out (the right hand side length). then i used sine rule and got 80.4 degrees.
6. I had a bloody stomach ache in this exam. I couldn't think properly, it was so annoying. I managed to finish the paper which i am soooooo happy about but i swear im going to make my stomach regret what torture it put me through today
7. Hey so it looks like I got around 132/135 in both papers, what grade am I looking at? I'm hoping for an A because my mums been pressuring me but I'm not sure because everyone is saying that they found it easy so I'm not sure how high the grade boundaries will be.. Any ideas?

what do you think an A will be this year overall i think i got 130-133/200????
9. On Q17, i used sine rule in the triangle to find an angle. However, i didn't know about the ambiguous value for the sine rule and used the wrong form of the answer. Would i get 0marks eventhough i got all the methods right, just not the angle?
10. The answer you got for question 11 is wrong because you didn't add the £17.5 that he has to pay for the car park. This means tha the right answer for question 11 is £17.5+£42.29= £59.79

I got 40.0?
Yeah I got 40.1

I think you added the parking twice dude
13. Do you have the working solution for question 11
14. (Original post by ocj28)

thats probably a B - an A will be about 140-145

You'd probably get 2 marks if you got the method right☺️

but it was 125 for an A last year though it shouldn't increase that much
17. (Original post by FinleyBarry)

God I doubt they'll be that high, a lot of people I know don't think they managed to even get a C
18. (Original post by zeldor711)
I got 80.1? You're probably right. Did you get the other angle as 40 and side as 5.22?
I got 80.1!!!
19. Got everything there but put 30 instead of 30.1, forgot the half in 1/2absinc for the last question and got 1/3x+4 instead of -1/3x+4. Still kicking myself. HOW DO YOU FORGET HALF, IT IS A TRIANGLE. :'( But I should get above 95 due to ecf.
