Oversimplified Answers
by Suitcasey114 Junior Cert Mathematics — 10/06/16 3

In Paper 1 today,for Q14,the dotted line messed me up,and I accidentally said c=0.Does that mean I lose all my marks for the next part,or would I be saved by consequential marking? Basically,did I oversimplify my answer?

Yeah you seem to have oversimplified your answer

I'm not sure how the marking goes if your answer is oversimplified but usually if your answer to one part is consistent with an answer to a previous part you should get the marks

Yeah cos my answer to be part b worked out fully,and it didn't change my method of doing the sum,so I was hoping to get some marks
