I did maybe afew past papers, and got very high A's, so just left it at that really :/ I've always been very good at maths, so barely revise for it (sorry if this sounds arrogant) In that exam, some of the questions were not typical to previous papers, and required you to apply knowledge in an unfamiliar way. However, it seems if you tackled them from first principles, you could do them well (which is what I did, after having a mini-panic attack from reading a question on the paper)
5. I got 37 UMS, but an A in C2?
