    With the exam a few just a few weeks away, how is preperation going? Feel free to discuss the exams and any problems here.

    Good luck everyone!
    Hey, because you're the OP, can we possibly put the quote below in your opening post? (Or something asking someone to send a C3 paper to Mr M? And possibly a link to Mr M's profile in case someone with the paper doesn't know where to find him? And could you do it in big bold red letters or something? Sorry, I know I'm being demanding here

    By the way will anyone be able to get a question paper? Mr M said that no one is sitting C3 at his centre so unless someone sends him a copy of the questions he can't do solutions.
    It's of paramount importance that someone gets their little mittens on a C3 paper :eek:
    I need the solutions!!! :eek:

    Don't panic - someone will have one. I will keep 30 mins free tomorrow evening to sort out the answers when a paper eventually appears.

    i can only hope we get a decent paper, i'm probably gonna end up being exhausted by the time i get to FP1 lol - im just curious how they somehow thought putting two similar exams on at the same time was a good idea :rolleyes:
    Agreed. Death would be too kind too OCR.

    I reckon I could do pretty well or really **** in FP1 :mad:

    TBH C3 is where it is at.

    Well I've never asked for the school for a copy of the exam paper, but I could try I guess (not sure what they would think). And also I have FP1 straight afterwards though I can't guarantee anything.

    I'm not looking forward at all to the last question tommorows paper. They have all been so hard, so I'm praying I can just fluke my way to the right answer!!

    Oh no lol I didn't mean you as in just you ... Just thought that because you put the idea out that we need a C3 paper for Mr M, if we put it in the opening post then someone with the paper might be likely to see it and send it to Mr M.
    Don't try and get one if you can't I know that sometimes schools might not like it because they use these papers as mocks. Also, good luck for FP1... I remember the good old FP1 days! :rolleyes:

    Same, but this is a retake, so i don't have as much pressure as i do for C3 - all i got to remember to do is take it slowly and think the problem through, then it should (hopefully) be ok - or OCR decide to be nice and actually give out a reasonable paper, but by the looks of the last ones that looks unlikely

    Feeling so bad about this exam I'm really good at the maths in the lessons I just can't do it in the exams. Even revision is making me stressed, not good.

    Definitely! Half of the questions weren't even in the normal C3 paper style. Goodbye Uni!
    Having said that everyone I've spoken to found it horrible.

    That was nasty. No issues up until around question eight, but wow. I looked around and one girl was in tears, and several guys were just sitting there, apparently having given up.

    One bit of good news though - in June 2010, you needed 50/72 for an A, which is around 70%, so hopefully this will be similar or lower.
