Tests Question (How to get 100%?)

  1. Feb 2, 2014 #1
    I have noticed that, No matter how well I do, in this case I only missed 3 questions out of 23, but that that is only an 85, I felt really confident about the whole thing, and even had the time to check everything two or three times. I never seem to get a hundred, even though I've checked and rechecked the answer, I won't know till Monday what the 3 questions were, thankfully I don't think that the one I spent a lot of time trying to understand was one. So any advice on how to get over the hump and actually get that mythical 100%?

    20 of 23 correct is about 86.9565%, which I might call 87%, not 85%.

    I. Know but I could almost swear that it said 85. Something percent. I was more asking if anyone had anytime that I might not be doing on tests?

    It may be because marks were different for questions.

    I always get A* in maths ever since Gr.8.But got a B in grade 7. 65/100.
    I got 95 at the first term in Gr.8
    The method was to practice.
    Algebra was my enemy in gr.7 but with enough practice,it became my best friend.
    So practice makes perfect.
    Who knows,you may even get 100.

    Tyrion101, when you get your test back tomorrow, post the three problems you missed and your answers. Maybe we can figure out why you got them wrong.

    Will do, my usual culprits are, didn't read the question right in the first place, or those sign errors
