## 7/7

pretty simple

the scaling on that 2nd question is massively misleading mind you

## Needed to do workings out

too much effort

## nah

everything on there could be done mentally - it was multiple choice ffs

## you can draw a cosine graph in your head?

It's quite a steep graph at approaching 90 degrees; can't accurately place the y value at all myself except to say that it's probably between 0.2 and 0.4

## 0.309

Should have gone with my instinct :P

## Balls: there was a workings sheet provided

Highly doubtful they'd be asking GCSE pupils to perform SOHCAHTOA calculations in their heads, unless things have radically changed since I was at school

Multiple choice doesn't mean mental arithmatic

## *shudder*

## gcse maths includes knowing what a ten sided shape is called? really?

## at the lowest level: yes

## i'm quite surprised by that

## got as far as knowing adj/hyp = cos 72 and then couldn't be fucked looking for a calculator

I'm really good at maths, gonna assign myself an honorary 7/7

## adj/3.4 = cos 72, even

## This has told me that my Android calculator in scientific mode uses Radians not degrees.

## tan, not cos, surely?

## No, you're right

## that's an ownness-level fail, sorry

## I hadn't seen the question when I typed that.

I got confused by you getting confused between adj/hyp and adj/3.4.

## 7/7, because I'm not a THICKO

^autofill

## I had to do GCSE maths for my Access Course this year

None of it was as awkward as this, I call bullshit.

## 10/10

## same as meths

## Question 2's a bit cheeky

The angle in the diagram is nothing like 72 degrees!

## look, I've done my GCSEs and I got a C in maths

and now I can forget about maths forever ok.

## but the TV price question!

That's good stuff.

## can I use a calculator?

## Just wrote it down

Old skool style

## yes

## 7/7,

had to use a calculator and notepad though.

## Definitely need a calculator for Q2

Unless you have access to Trig tables OR have them memorised. GCSE pupils would have their scientific calculators

## 6/7

Never could do triangle math

## 7/7

I knew that maths degree would come in handy for something one day.

## ^one outsmarted a salesman in Dixons

## *once

waay

## ^dreading the English test tomorrow.

## the ownness is on me to brush up on my spelling before then

## 7/7

That was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

## 6/7

completely forgot all my triangle maths stuff

## dunno why but "triangle maths" is making me laugh a lot

## I got bored reading question two and gave up.

Can't wait for the BBC Magazine's English exam where I get to write a diary from the viewpoint of Romeo. THAT'S where I shine.

Take away 2 from 3, that leaves me,

I'll leave you running wet just like the sea,

If there's a door give me the key,

I'll push it in, twist it around and run free,

Mmmm

## shut up maths

## 7/7

Good recovery from my 3 in the science one.

## they've got the vat rate wrong

this nation's going to the dogs

## I tried really hard

and I'm not ashamed to say 4 out of 7.

## still better than I did at the science one

## 7/7

copied Marckee's answers

## 7/7

Just as well as I teach it for a living...

## Gave up after the second question.

Was reading a book about complex analysis today FOR FUN, so this sort of thing can go hang.
