Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. Just under a week to go... How's everyone doing?
2. Good
3. Got 97% in my mock so hopefully it'll go okay!
4. I got 95% above last year in all my core 1 mocks then got a D in the exam so have to retake this year - no idea how to prepare for how hard last year's paper was!
5. I have done all the past papers, do you think it is wise to start the Solomon papers or not ?

A bit late for soloman. They tend to have 'weird' and harder questions, so even though they are good practice, there is no point making yourself worry so close to the exam if you struggle with them.
7. Hey guys, how was the exam? I failed.
8. How did you guys find it?

9. I found it alright but struggled on the question where it asked for CT and gave you AT
10. Jking
Seriously that was a hard paper
11. what did you lot get for the integration "shaded area" bit? I got something stupid low. like 1.75 I think it was
12. Not too good, messed up the integration and part b of the surd one
13. I got 11.25
14. I also got 11.25 as the area and surd was 75-32 root5 i think
15. I bet everyone got so many different answers to the integration question. It was the toughest question on the paper by far. I got 15.75 for shaded area. 😬
16. I struggled with the first parts of 6 rest was okay though!

That was easy it was 9
18. I got 17/4 for integration and the shaded area as 24*1/2*2.25 - 17/4=91/4 which would be:

22.75 so i don't know
19. I got 11.25 for the integration.
AT = 9.
Anybody find anything else difficult?
