    Since I messed up the 3H so badly, I don't think this has done enough to up my grade.

    I exactly did the same test and feel the same way so hopefully grade boundaries will be low.

    Think it went okay, the only question I didn't answer was the weird, demented "n" question, and I was annoyed that no vector question came up.

    So do i ahhah btw go look at this thread http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=3380171
    all the answers are right apart from the cumulative frequency one which should be 16 not 86, if you can remember what you put you can see how many marks you got!! I didnt do too badly in the end, got around 78 (worst case)

    Maybe I read it wrong but I thought it was an octagon (so interior angle is 135) and a pentagon (108) and the difference is 27 which was x?

    Basically, you know that interior angles in pentagon are 108, and there was an isosceles triangle on the left. You worked out the base angles of the isosceles (180-108=72/2=36) and then you took 36 away from 108, which left you with 72. Cause it was a square on the inside, 90 degree angle, and you take 72 away from 90 (90-72=18). You probs will get a few marks for your working out so no stress

    Which exam was this on? I had a similar question where the answer was 27 so maybe this is confusing 2 exams? Just editing this! I've just found a unofficial mark scheme for Linear A, I do modular B where 27 was the right answer if that helps
