I think it went okay, what did everyone get for the circle question? difference between circle P and Q. I think I pulled through with at least 40 marks, I would prefer 45.

I left mine in pie form and just took them away but my calculations were wrong. Somehow I wrote 25^2 to be 425 instead of 625. Then times that by 1/3.

Predicting at least 30 marks if I'm being generous :/

I was looking forward to more multiple choice question easy marks but there was barely any which was a shame.

I don't fully remember the question but from what I know I did not get those answers. For P I got 300pie but how did you get Q? Q was the smaller shape right?

true. At least paper 1 gives us an idea of the difficulty level for the other papers
