    I've sort of finished all of F322. Just need to solidfy everything now and make sure I know all the definitions. The only problem is the longer questions. x_x The explanation question and the 10 marks are a b*tch.

    Covered about 90% of the content in class, have done 2 past papers so far which seemed to have gone reasonably well, we still have over a month until the exam I don't understand why people are dropping the marbles just yet.

    I have a mock exam on monday. So I basically had to cover all f322 in this holiday. I just finished and did a past paper under exam conditions, and I got a D. So I'm sh*tting it for monday as I don't think I can make a big difference in 2 days.

    I've covered a lot of the content but not all, I'm resitting this exam from last year though and I already feel a lot more confident than I did last year (mind you, I got a U in this paper last year)...so we'll see!

    I failed the exam, partly due to my late entrance to the course and due to other extenuating circumstances.

    Tips on sitting it the first time.. Well, you have to make sure you know all of your definitions by heart, because there are quite a few in the paper which are worth a decent amount of marks. You need to know everything in the specification - if you haven't done so, read through it. The examiner cannot set a question that's not in the specification. My big advice is to do lots and lots of past papers, because once you do them, you'll begin to see a pattern in the questions the examiner sets and the kind of answers you'll need to write, so you'll know what to do in the actual exam.

    Make sure that for the long questions, you write in a clear, concise way. I use bullet points rather than full sentences (unless to define a key term) to explain the answer, which makes it structured. But that doesn't work for everyone, so do what is best for you.

    Yea I always use the specification as i'm going through each chapter in the textbook, makes everything a lot clearer. As for definitions, i'm pretty good at them, we're constantly (on a weekly basis) being tested on definitions from both units so i'll be alright with that hopefully! (i'm sitting f321 in june too)
    I've had a look at some past papers and yes, questions are constantly repeated. Hopefully this june's paper they follow the same structure! Thanks for the tips and good luck!

    I'm cacking myself for this exam because it's my SECOND resit already tried this exam twice and got 2 Es. And it's not that I'm not trying because I got a B for my first A2 exam this January. I guess the content of F322 just isn't going in :cry2:
