    Are you a AS Student or A2?

    Are you sitting C3+C4+(M1/S2)?

    I'm an A2 sitting C3/C4/M1 but want resitting C2/S1 for extra ums.
    They really aren't difficult once you finished C3/C4.

    I did m1 and M2 last year! Honestly mechanics just clicks that's the only way I can describe it! My best advice is: 1) ALWAYS draw a diagram and make sure you include magnitude and direction for everything! 2) read the question a few times and write down the key info, eg the mass of the object, the coefficient of friction etc. 3) do everything in pencil! 4) think objectively about your answers

    What in particular do you find tricky?

    ah thankyou for the advice! I just find it hard trying to understand what the question is asking for especially when it requires you to find one answer to get to the main answer I also sometimes know what you do with the information you are given, I know i sound so stupid but i just don't understand the whole physics and mechanics thing D': It doesnt help that my teachers a total d*** and makes me feel stupid every time i ask a question :l

    Yeah they can be really hard but don't worry about it honestly - try and break the problem down and think about what information you have, and what equations you know that can help you get to the next step, and that's another thing knowing your equations is a very big part of m1!
    That's annoying, I hate teachers like that listen if you've ever got a specific example I'm more than happy to try and help you out if you wanted to PM me any time also I really recommend the website examsolutions.net it's soo good he explains things really well!
    The main thing is don't panic, you can do it as well there's numerous maths threads on here and I'm sure people would always want to help!

    I feel your pain. I revised C3 thoroughly and am now finally scoring consistently good in past papers. However, mechanics makes me and I study Physics. :lol: In Mechanics 1, you either understand or don't understand what is involved.
    I'm planning on focusing from Jan-early March on M1 since abstract maths takes longer to understand than straightforward core modules.

    How did you persuade your college to let you resit all of your AS modules? My college only lets us resit 1 module but 2 at the most. I'm in a similar boat to you since I'm resitting C2+S1 + A2 maths = 5/6 exams whereas your sitting 6/6 maths module exams.

    Have you seen how tightly packed the exams are? I'm only concerned at S1(5th June) & M1(3rd June) as they require opposite skills whereas core modules are easy since they are synoptic papers. What subjects do you study besides Maths?
    I'm studying Maths, Physics & History. What are you applying to study at uni?

    Yeah me too, for maths & further. Then ocr physics a.

    Mine are
    14th May - FP1 (resit)
    19th May - G481 (resit)
    Biiiiig gap
    3rd June - FP2
    Gap
    9th June - M2 (resit) AND D1
    11th June - G484
    12th June - C3
    16th June - c4
    17th June - step II
    18th June - g485
    19th June - step III
    22nd June - s2
    24th June - d2

    The Step papers are queries at the moment; I put down on ucas that I will be entering for them so I'd like to do them but as I haven't received any step based offers its unlikely my teachers will let me do them without paying myself
