    I found it alrightish. Im confident of 75%!
    QUESTION
    If I got 40% on paper 1, 75% on paper 2 and a* (full marks) coursework, whats the chances of me getting an A?
    I know a lot of people think the boundaries will be extremley high, but the vast majority of my class found it quite tough! Taking the whole country's opinion in, I doubt it will be that high.

    That was SO EASY.

    I kept thinking when is it going to get hard, it never did though. Q24 was so simple.

    Probably because the Non Calc was pretty hard, even though i found that OK.

    1 thing though, grade boundaries will be high.

    What did ya all get for Q23? i got 21.7 ....

    I think both papers were easy.
    I think I know why, because I actually revised, whereas for mocks and past papers I don't revise.

    That's completely stupid. The grade boundary for A* is going to be nothing near that. It is going to be 85% maximum. Remember the calculator paper wasn't that easy.

    However, it was a easy paper.

    I ended up with like 5 + or - the square root of 7 all over 2... hmmmm *scratches head*
    Never mind though, ill get some for working it out!

    Yeah that's what I got too, 5+/- root 7, over 2. I guess we'll get 1/2 out of the 3 marks though, even if we're wrong.

    Ahh, that was the easiest Maths paper I've done..
    100% or 98+ definitely !

    I'm not sure what quadratic question you people are talking about but for the triangle I got 21.7 ( I didnt use quadratics to get that though? )

    From what I can remember, the quadratic was x^2 - 5x - 8 = 0.
    I completed the square to get:
    (x - 2.5)^2 - 14.25 = 0
    x - 2.5 = sq14.25
    x = 2.5 +/- sq 14.25
    Which gives 6.27 and -1.27.
