1. (Original post by Reda2)
Yes, I'm practising now and looking at mark schemes at what lines they are looking for, for each question, hopefully this helps tomorrow. One more question, I write a lot of quick small statements, is that needed or not? for example, Area r =
Eq. of circle:
Since remainder = 7, therefore f(1) = 7
Instead of "therefore" you can do that symbol with 3 dots in a kind of triangle arrangement

might cut like a second off each question

if a question asked for the sum to inifinity, or an area of a sector etc,,,

Do I have to write out the formuIa first or can i just use it without showing the formuIa I'm using

You can do it without writing the formula out first but it's recommened to write out the formula pickup method marks if you made a slip.

8. I think I know what to do now, let me know what you guys think.

Spend the first 2-5 min looking through the whole paper (this gives me an overall idea on what to expect after each question), then start on Question 2, as Q1 at the end can be done quickly if running out of time. And as I'm doing the questions, if I come across a weird question or a bit different from usual I will skip it and come back to it after I last question, and after that one go back and finish question 1 and finish the flipping thing.

This is after discussing it with my brother who is doing Phd.
