Overall...Excellent I reckon :) 90-100% raw no probs only thing I'll lose marks for is my lax attempt at working here and there

Cohort found it good; probably 35/40 were smiling and expecting 80+ saying that our crazy nazis of maths teachers paid off hella big time!

Was a bit harder than I expected and took full time though

Meh, i suck at maths, but I think I'll end up with 50-60%. Not a really difficult test.

Harder then trial but hopefully 90+

Left out very last part of question 10 and stupidly left part of the pentagon out.

I've never done a growth q. like that before.

The Growth and Decay answer was during the 10th month of 2010 aka October 2010, right?

EDIT: OH FUK, I think it was November!

34.6 months after 1 January 2008. That means 10 months into 2010, which is in the middle of October.
