Thank you very much for the solution!!
I think I lost 14 marks, so total will be 84%...
Hope it will be a A pass...


I think that'll be like a Band 1 A pass... 84% is really really high! Well done

I haven't bothered to count up all the marks I've lost.. can't be bothered tongue.gif plus it'll just depress me tongue.gif

I hope so.
It depress me a lot. I so worry about my chemistry and computing exams.

but anyway, I really hope I can get a good grade of them.

When you feel like giving up...just remember why you held on for so long.

Usually you need to get around 60% for a B. Last year was 59% for B, but I think it may go up to about 65% this year because the exam was much easier smile.gif

Well, I was utterly shocked at this paper. I'm god damn positive of an A, possibly the easiest paper since 1999.

Does anyone know what kind of inaccuracies are normally accepted with regard to scale drawings? Because i put down 351m instead of 350m for displacement question 21, but carried it though to rest of the questions as well.

usually you would just lose 1 mark as you would have your error carried on
