Which is more harder Math: non calculator or math CalculatorWatch
They are both easy - I don't think one is really harder than the other.
Well, I found GCSE higher tier pips as well, but not all of us do... the OP may not be the Maths genius all of you are.
In response to the question posed; I'd have to say the calculator-allowed paper was easier. Give me a calculator and I can solve almost anything. It was fun.
The non-calculator is easier in my eyes, although I'm afraid I have to agree - they're both pretty easy... 71% is still a fairly good mark though, would that get you a B?
Agreed- bit of arrogance being shown in this thread! Comments like 'they're both easy', 'they're both simple' and 'only 71%' don't make the rest of us who aren't so good at maths feel any better Just because you lot find maths easy, it doesn't mean everyone does, and 71% is a very good mark. I took higher tier and got a B, which I was very proud of because I seriously thought I'd failed! Anyway, in response to the OP, I personally found both very hard, but I always found the calculator paper a lot easier. It depends what topics you're good at though. I was quite good at things like equations and trigonometry, but I sucked at graphs and angles!
You do realise that the OP was also being arrogant, by saying "just wondering if the non calculator exam would be as easy"?
You know when you are doing something where you have to leave it as 3SF at the end? Well as I was working it all out, I'd do it ALL to 3SF.
Which gave me an answer which wasnt right, but only by like 1.
But the AS level the paper with the calculator is certainly harder
In my AS Exams last year I got 81% on the non, but 97% and on the one with the calculator. Which says to me the calculator paper are easier.
