When I look through the mark scheme they always use rounded answers from questions to answer other questions, which usually leaves me with an answer that is slightly different (as I use the more exact answer). I've always been taught to not use rounded answers, but should I for these physics exams?

No, always use your unrounded answer as input for another part of the question. You've been taught correctly.

So why do the markschemes never do this? it's all very confusing.

I'm not sure, afaik the mark schemes did, I have most of the mark schemes with me especially the synoptic module 10 ones, if you could give me an example of such a question, I can have a look, and get back to you on what I think they've done and why......but its very odd for them to be round off early, odd indeed :P
