    I found it really hard too! Last year's exam was 85 for A* and 92 for full UMS and it was easier than this year so hopefully this will increase our chances

    I don't love S2, but it looked like a lesser evil compared to D1 It's only really important if I mess up my C3 and C4 (please not again!) and need the UMS to make my insurance. Fingers crossed it won't come to that! :argh:

    Focus on summer images of Newnham College gardens in your mind and repeat over and over again: "this is a means to an end, this is a means to an end..."

    I think I'll try that!

    Though I have vowed not to think about Cambridge during my major exams because it could lead to me panicking

    You can't - it's impossible.
    Will spend the time using the quick sort on my life. I have M2 10 minutes after D1 as well - Edexcel clearly unable to schedule maths exams.

    Do D2, D1 is actually enjoyable in comparison. Nothing can be as bad as three iterations of simplex tableau.

    Doing a past paper now and having to add up 19 event times makes me want to stab something

    *That s*** moment when you spot the sum of event times in the question and the calculation has already been done*

    Oh yeah, I'm the absolute worst at that. I'm always convinced I can talk and do maths at the same time. (I can't)

    Yes, all you need from D1 is the graph theory terminology and linear programming.
