    Writing a frankly scalding email to my Head of Sixth condemning his decision to write off languages :mmm:

    I don't like Sets either - mainly because I haven't bothered learning what each symbol means -.-

    After just doing a past paper I have mutual feelings for Surds - the specimen paper has the grades it's aiming for after each question and Surds was an A*/A question towards the end and all I had to do was put the question on my calculator

    I'm hoping that if I work hard (which I am) then I can trying scraping an A,

    Before I didn't do much maths revision hence why I got Low B's but now with revising I'm getting high B's

    Well with my exam board (Edexcel IGCSE), they design the question so that Mr Casio can't exactly give you the answer, since it will ask for it expressed... you get no marks for just writing down what your calculator says

    But I would have
    \sqrt2
    over

    any day.

    edit: We're on the same board '^'
    It's so easy tbh, that you make lots of silly mistakes - I'm actually worried I'll become complacent and just rush through it in half an hour and not get an A*
    Admaths is easier in that way
    I know right! I always make silly mistakes and I keep thinking "don't have time" but always finish early,
    You get some good questions towards the end occasionally just like "Put ... In standard form" and sometimes you don't need to work it out because your calculator can do it for you

    I'm thinking I'm going to do the paper from the end to the beginning :?

    Literally do as many past papers as you can, they literally just repeat questions from previous years ( With different numbers ) you can easily get to an A by just doing past papers, I've done about 20 at school
