    I suck at calculations and PS questions. And I am not good at applying knowledge to exam questions in maths
    Yeah, applying knowledge sucks Just study this year, and get unconditionals for uni next year. Nothing is worse than sitting here panicking so much about not meeting conditions So nervous it's unreal

    Calculations in unit 1 are my weakness no matter how hard I try I always get them wrong. I haven't even looked at unit 3 maths yet and whenever I try to study I always get distracted, so far I have only done 3 maths PP over easter holidays. I AM SO FAILING!
    I can do most calculations, it is where I pick up most of my marks, it's usually the written answers that are like 2 marks and need more than a couple of words where I lost marks

    I've done 1 1/2 maths PP, so you have done more than me

    It's really wanted to get 5 As but after my prelims result there is no hope. Btw how on earth did you manage to get a B in english? I am surprised that you got a lower grade in physics than english as I find physics easier.

    I'd love a B It means if I went to Glasgow I could pick up an essay subject like History as my third subject, since I never took it to Higher

    I actually like multiple choice questions because you have 25% chances of getting them right. In my prelim I just randomly ticked boxes!

    I have Only done 3 PP no other subject and I am sure you have done more than that!

    Your guess is as good as mine. I hardly studied english at all. My most educated guess is the marker was on drugs.

    What I found works in the essays is give a few valid points/quotes to answer the question, and just waffle about nonsensical events/scenes that you vaguely remember hearing about when you woke up mid nap in class. Seems to be the winning formula.

    Essays are alright but what's your secret of passing close reading and not running out of time?

    Time was never an issue for me in Close Reading I don't think, but I just splurged english onto paper. Throw fancy terms like hyperbole and alliteration all over the place.

    Excess isn't too bad for me, anything that involves molar volume, and "A solution of potassium chloride and potassium carbonate is known to contain 0.4 moles of chloride ions and 0.4 moles of carbonate ions. How many moles of potassium are present" just....whaaat

    I'm actually alright at those questions...sometimes. Oh I hate molar volume, especially when it involves amps or coulombs.
