    Right then, who's taking AEA on Tuesday?
    How're you all feeling?

    I did a past paper a few months ago and blitzed it, felt really good (must of bee a particularly easy one). Sat down and did two yesterday, and they didn't go very well at all. Now I'm feeling an awful lot less confident!

    Hey, im sitting it tomorrow too .

    I don't personally find them that difficult- there is only so much you need to know (since the AEA is based all on core material) so there is only so much they can ask you. Personally i hate the vectors at the end (just because i hate vectors- and it also tends to be the biggest question in terms of marks) but the rest tends to go very well. The big calculus area questions can also be a bit of a drag, but such is life .

    I've only done 1 paper fully and 2-3 papers partially so i'm going to spend some time today selectively choosing the questions that i think i can't do (mainly vectors) in a bid to improve. GL tomorrow!

    When I first looked I hated the vectors questions, but having looked back, it does seem they ask similar questions each year, so hopefully there won't be a surprise tomorrow.

    You need AEA for your uni offer?

    Good luck too, btw

    Yes, assuming i didn't get a 2 in STEP1- my performance will be very borderline.

    I am taking it for fun tomorrow, not a uni requirement.

    I suck at AEA vectors. Trig and calculus are my strength.

    I have also just done one paper, got around 90 in it but that was because the vectors question was similar to one of the question i had previously done so i knew it.

    Ah, the trig's one of my weaker parts, a lot more complex then c4 questions, that's a good thing though. Having said that, I've spent last few days working on aea, I'll do a few more questions tonight, hopefully that'll sort me out

    How'd you guys find it then?
    I thought it was okay - there were a few sub questions I didn't answer, lost 15 marks for sure, so after that it just depends how correct everything else I put was!
