    For question 11a) (in the image I have attached, would I only get 1 mark for just putting 4.08? I believe 4.081 is the correct answer.

    The question clearly states 3dp and not 3sf or 2dp, 4.081 is indeed correct.

    So would I only get 1 mark? Past mark schemes indicate that if you do 2 dp and not 3, then you lose 1 mark.

    Yes you will lose 1 mark so you will get 1 mark for that question

    I agree. You could lose both marks if no working is shown.
