    Oh god, S1 is soooo close. I'm not too worried because I've been doing quite well on past papers recently; but I have had no time to revise this weekend :/. I'm aiming to get ~ 10 hours revision done between now and Wednesday.

    I think they were of similar difficulty. Jan13 had a much harder proof by induction though. But this year had some very unusual questions like f(w/j) and the series with p in it. Though I noticed many of the 'harder' questions weren't worth many marks in our paper.
    OMG. What an AWFUL paper it was ridiculously difficult. I hope grade boundaries are extremely low.
    Oh and guess what!? I hate mechanics too!!

    I'm just going to do past papers for S1 today and tomorrow, I did past papers the day before the C1 exam and I noticed that a few questions were the exact same as in the past papers, with the same figures.

    Hi guys, just a quick questions, can anyone please clarify the roundings of our answers in the S1 paper? Thanks x.
    I've always been told 4 significant figures and that's always got me the mark in class past papers👍🏻

    4sf for probabilities (4-5 accepted)
    3sf for non-probability e.g. mean/standard deviation (3-4 accepted)

    so basically 4sf is usually safe.

    Some numbers would be a good bet Jokes, jokes - I have no idea and I'm so stressed about this one :/ Going by past papers almost definitely hypothesis test, standard deviation, probably a graph of some kind (cumulative frequency, histogram or box and whisker) and then probably just familiarise yourself with the types of probability questions that can come up, conditional probability and how to prove independence or whatever

    Yeah I think ur right. The only thing I really struggle on is the probability which is like half the test...#pastpapers

    Just wondering on the whole do people find s1 extremely easy compared to the other applied modules? I'm surprised how low the boundaries have been for an A on s1 recently

    For cumulative frequency graphs and histograms do we need to work out upper and lower class boundaries? I've not been taught to do this but its in my revision guide.
