# 94/100 in maths gcse text? Watch

1. I need 94% in the calculator paper in order to retain my a* as i have lost about 30 marks on the non calc paper? Any tips how?
2. to make sure my calculator isnt lying to me, i do it twice if i have doubts, and then reverse calculations to make sure the answer is right. then on questions with ridiculous numbers, write down the long winded set of decimals that follow in the working out space and round it in your answer so the examiner can see what went through your head. since you got a calc, use it even for easier sums.

I'm the same, just looking at the unofficial mark schemes made me realise how many questions I'd misread, there's so much pressure needing to get almost full marks
6. I'm trying to retain an A here. I lost around 37 marks though it could change so id probably need a minimum of 73 marks on the calculator? Any tips? xD

lets do this together - strong mathematical revision ethic

Yeah, there's so much I revised that didn't come up on the paper, hopefully that means it'll be on calculator. I'm just going to do as much revision as possible without neglecting my other subjects
