    Has anyone done those worst answered question compilation papers that edexcel made? I've done one of them and I'm going to do another because they were pretty manageable (got 63/71) but j made a few really stupid mistakes. They're good prep for difficult questions that might come up in ours as they make you think a bit more.
    can you give me the link lol

    that moment when im supposed to be focusing on my assignment but im focusing on what stuff on here i should use to revise XD im doing a Higher tier and all i've got is a private tutor and a mathswatch CD that i barrowed from a family friend. i cant print out any maths papers at home so i cant do those but i've been anwsering all the questions i got wrong from my old pratice paper from 3 years ago (that's another thing i havent done maths since 3 years ago when i was in school).

    the only main revision is that i've been doing is working in my text books and watching mathswatch... i only found out now that i should just work on past papers instead of my text book (even though my tutor has been telling me that) @_@ im a C grade student trying to at least get a B grade

    Do as many past papers as you can under timed conditions eventually you will notice ur exam skill is spot on all the time,I began this year getting c's and D's and now my last 10 mock exams have all been either A or A* practice makes perfect gd luck.

    You need to be learning the material too though! I personally find that certain topics just won't get in my head (D/C borderline ).

    Looking at Mathsgenie's topics: the harder angle questions on Foundation (generally the C stuff I think), bearings, grade C equations, factorising.

    I also need to practice the loci stuff but it isn't hard, just something to remember

    Loci for the most part is using the scale factor and accurately measuring lengths, the hardest part is using the compass to draw lines because u need to be very precise

    Do you think I'd be able to revise enough practice papers for the next 1 week and 4 days before the mom calculator exam? >.< I'm seriously getting a bit worried about not getting the grade as this is for my first choice university and I haven't been taking enough past paper.
