    We spent about a term doing that. The annoying thing was, when I did the question my values didnt fit into the equation :confused: - toher people got them as well.

    I kept turning the pages hoping for a really hard trig question in which you'd use the cosine or sine rule so I could feel all proud of myself but nothing too "challenging" came up, damn it.

    Personally, I'm disappointed with maths this year. I think I may have over done the revision.

    Thanks for those boundaries for last year, Oilcan...not as bad as I thought. About 113/200 to get an A. I've got a CGP marking scheme guide here that says around 67%-76% is an A which would mean like 134/200 for the lowest A. Hopefully it's not that high this year.

    I'm such an idiot I rushed into the histogram question and thought "wow this is a bit easy..." and the whole ten minutes I had of checking my paper over, I kept skipping the histogram one. Not once did I think "hold on, it was a little bit too easy...perhaps I should look at it again"

    Must forget about it. This is going to nag me.

    I mean there was no big triangle question where you absolutely had to use them - pythagoras is easier (in my mind anyway) so that doesnt count.
    The big triangle one only required one use of inverse Tangent to work out an angle, and then you could just take it away from 90 degrees to get the answer. Very simple.

    DW about those cgp things mate. They just say for everyhting 85% is an A* etc for insurance. For my science I only need about 50-60% for an A.

    The cgp ones are a lot higher.

    True. I'm always saying that, but there's only so many stupid mistakes one can make without getting bothered. Oh well, must use energy thinking about the next exams rather than old ones.

    I thought that was really easy weirdly enough, probably will just balance out the non calculator

    Yeah, I agree. I think they may be a little bit lower but not masses, as some people presumed after paper 1.
