    If everyone thought it was hard, though, (my whole year thought it was horrible), then surely the grade boundaries will be lower and it won't be so bad?

    But seriously, what the hell was that 8 marker at the end. I've done all the past papers and they were way easier!

    Same, yeah our teacher said they should go down if it was a hard paper. And yeah, I did all the past papers but nothing could have prepared us for that paper! :/

    T6 really is easier. Although, I did T4 and T6 five years ago, so :laugh: things might be different.

    It was the way they seemed to ask questions. For example, the proportion question was asked in a completely different context. The scale for the cumulative frequency graph was so messed up. Then I forgot what a segment was so I couldn't do the area question. I had to ask for extra paper for the 7 mark because I messed it up and then the 8 marker took me ages. Then that factorising question was tragic. I wrote a outside the brackets instead of 5a🙄. Everybody I've talked to hated that paper so much. OH and I had no idea how to prove the alternate segment theorem😭😭😭

    Ugh yeah that scale for the cumulative frequency graph was awful! Little things make a massive difference when I'm stressed in an exam. Just make it 5 squares! And I'd no idea how to do the second table we had to fill in on cumulative frequency.

    I think I got 6.3, but I really had to rush that. Like my answer should've been say 4sin78.39392/sin90.983, but I just typed in 4sin78/sin90, so my answer will be out a bit, but hopefully I got method marks..

    And everything about the paper was horrible, like everything was a complicated version of what was in previous papers... They even asked the hardest proof!

    DREADFUL!!! I went home and cried
    for the 8 marker I literally had about 20 seconds left so I wrote every triangle formula I knew on the page praying to get a mark!
    I was stuck on the first question on cumulative frequency for about 20 minutes. i cant wait to repeat ..

    If anyone is still looking at this discussion, how are you feeling for results and what do you think the grade boundaries will be?

    Ooh, we're getting our results tomorrow. I'm so nervous - I think I got a lot of the equations and algebra right, but all the other stuff? Barely a chance. Teacher said she was going to bring in brandy tomorrow to try and numb the pain of our results, which bodes well xD

    Hoping the grade boundaries are super low, cause I need that A. Will probably resit if I don't get it.

    Well folks, gotta say the exam was interesting. I made so many silly mistakes and wasn't very accurate. I messed up so many times. Our teacher even went out and bought the class a box of tissues for tomorrow. Here's hoping that the grade boundaries will be low boyzzz
