    In a maths exam if for example if it asks you to work out the percentage of boys in a class and it was 72.567489005699% do you write that in the answer space? Sometimes the question does not tell you to round it to 1 d.p or 2 d.p etc (this is CCEA gcse maths) but then I'm worried if I don't round it I'll lose marks and then I'm worried if I do I'll lose marks

    Unless it specifically states the accuracy to go to (eg. 2dp,3sf), round it to something sensible and write that in brackets next to your answer. You won't lose any marks.

    For example;
    72.3% (1dp)
