ye bra i did the same
theres no marks allocated to it
apparently you draw the diagram to help you better understand it so its your loss by not drawing it
but i swear you didnt need to draw it anyway
anyway yeah i dont think you lose marks for it cos thatd be fuckin shit

Tracing/ Drawing the diagram also helps the markers to see wot u were doing as an extra to explain your working...

thats y they want it ( but don't need ) if u've made the rest of it clear

Yeah, i don't think you lose marks, there was no amount written on the side of the bit that said 'copy or trace the diagram'. So don't worry ;)

Yer thats the main reason they get you to draw the diagrams.

This is way too late to ask ^^; (i don't do 3U; i'm finished with maths)
but when you do redraw the diagrams from questions in exams, is it okay to add more letters at points to refer to in your work?
(I never did cos i never asked and never knew if it was okay and it was annoying as hell not having the extra points on the diagram)

That would be awesome if they did allocate marks to it though (Yay! I'd guaranteed at least 2/120!!)

Abso.utely it is OK! Thats the whole reason they get you to copy it! If you read the question it will usually have in part ii or iii something like "AB is produced to C) or whatever - they expect you to draw in the new lines and the points. You can then mark your own points to aid in their following of your logic.

Also, if you read the marking guidelines it actually says "No marks allocated for diagram". But it is always worth copying it anyway when it comes the the HSC. You might get a vindictive marker.

Lol. Honestly. What are the odds?

See you monday at the study day. We will kung-fu fight for the economics title.

I changed my name for my posts now. I didnt like eveyone knowing who I was because I have made a lot of enemies now in the politics forum. Oh well. They are all liberal supporters, so its not like their opinions matter.
