Also, what did you think of the exam?

Just go along on the day of the exam and do the maths paper the very best you can do and await your results in due course.

Cheating isn't worth it 😞 😞 😞.

Nobody should be giving you any information regarding what's in the exam paper.

But the exam is over now

I was a bit annoyed that they didn't have a standard deviation question but I understand it's because of the IQR on paper 1. Thankful that bearings didn't show up. Also no 3D trig? Having percentages twice was great but I was completely lost on the last question of paper 1. Also hated the triangle question on paper 2 where you had to find the length in the middle.

Also, what did you think of the exam?

I thought the exam was actually alright, wish there was a standard deviation tho. Any of yous remember how you done the area of a sector question on paper 2? I figured out the angle by rearranging the formula for arc length, then subbed that angle into the area of a sector formula, not sure if that's right tho? Anyone else do it that way or am i completely wrong😬

What did you guys get for the angle question, i thought that was so complicated, way too may angles.

Thats what I did. Seems like the only possible solution for it so it must be right. It was 90 or something right?

I did the exact same for that question so hopefully that is what you're meant to do 🤞

Do you mean the interconnecting triangles one where you start with an angle of roughly 125 ? I completely messed that one up 😬

yeah I had no idea what to do for that one but I think I got like 55

I did that too but I got a weird long decimal number which came up as scientific notation 😅
