    I redid this one C4 question in my paper like 10 times and missed full UMS because I gave my answer as \frac{a + b\ln c}{d} instead of \frac{a + \ln c^b}{d} (as was asked for) each single time. Lost 1 raw and 2 UMS because of that. FML. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: And it was an IAL paper, so 124/125. :rofl:
    That question came on my mock and I swear I did it at least thrice as well. Damn son, M1 and C34 had tough boundaries. If you sat these in J15 you'd have gotten full easily

    With C1 C2 I don't think you need to do every single paper to gain enough exam technique as long as you're thorough on the contents from whatever learning method you took. Particularly for maths, if you read the question, solve them correctly and show enough steps you get the marks without memorising the mark schemes, unlike something like AQA Physics where they ask you some silly phrases for you to gain the mark. But what I found is that by doing **** loads of paper I got faster and faster at doing the questions and in the real exam I could redo the paper a couple of times to find any silly mistakes. (even then I did make a few silly mistakes in C2, but oh well, life is not always fair )

    I really like Edexcel for Chemistry though! There hasn't been many ******** questions often found in AQA lol

    That moment I realise painfully that my life is being overtaken by exams....I just typed Edexcel into my computer search instead of Excel :lol:

    Don't worry, I did my first C2 paper on the 6th April and only started doing them seriously in May last year. Just get on with it now instead of worrying

    tbf there was a mistake on a question. can't remember the exact details but they either added or omitted a milli prefix when they weren't supposed to so if you had plotted the graph they wanted would have just been a straight line lol rather than an exponential decay (was a capacitor question iirc)
