    tbh, the paper's difficulty didn't surprise me - I lost marks where I was expecting to; definitions, a few on harder questions ( i.e. salad) and one simple arithmetic mistake, but I misread something in the first question (for d1 people it was matchings and I incorrectly thought that one matching was allowed that wasn't, so all my alternating paths were wrong) and that lost me another 6 marks so it's looking pretty dire overall.
    As long as it's above 70 ums which it should be then it's ok overall, but it's made me realise I can't take anything for granted

    Good luck for core, I reckon c4 might be hard this year because last years was particularly easy

    Technically speaking, both words and numbers constitute different parts of reason. Therefore, people who enjoy both writing essays and numbers are not defying reason but rather learning and applying reason in a more wholesome manner :lol:

    Maybe that's why he wants to build a wall. To keep out the people who only exclusively like numbers/words #BuildTheWall #DrainTheSwamp

    See I am really good at coming up with abstract ideas based on reason and judgement and given facts... I cannot for the life of me deal with numbers! I haven't a mathematical brain or a super creative brain for things /too/ open to interpretation (like art). I think I have the brain of a philosopher, though not one who deals with arithmetic.

    Everyone used to get mad at me because I couldn't do maths and my drawings were hopeless...
