    Do you have Fp2 tomoz then?

    Ouch. Glad it went great. Sounds really intense though :eek:.

    Tend to get A*-Bs. I should definitely improve last year's grade. I've hardly done any papers though. Gonna try to do some today or perhaps just the harder Qs at the library.

    Complex transformations :erm:.


    Good luck. I'm not looking forward to M2 :/.
    Nah I have M3, you got FP2 then?

    I think we're all hoping to pull a L'Evil Fish at this stage:lol:.
    Lmao, I've been so ill for a whole week. Finally recovered I think!

    I have M2 on Friday, gonna do a past paper each day

    Then S2,G484,F324 day after each other next week

    Quite worried I've forgotten lots for Chemistry... Might do a paper to see

    However, no cramming needed this year :lol: I just paid attention in class for the most part, much easier it has to be said

    G484 should be easy but Chemistry... lol that's not going to go well for me. I'll get an A overall though thanks AS scores but I'm not going to waste time on it that I can spend on FM and Physics.

    I'm going to need to do a lot of cramming for G485 though.

    I thought G485 would be a proper slog but it's actually not too bad at all, if you think about it logically it makes sense to just do.

    Which is easier said than done for electromagnetism however!

    Odd question but if you get a maths questions in two parts and they're directly related, e.g. you have to do simultaneous equations, does it matter if you give the answer to the second part before the first part? Im probably just over panicking before M1 tomorrow haha

    My friend was asking me this yesterday haha. You'd get the marks but I'd probably recalculate for the second part just in case lol

    I've been told if it's a question split into "i" and "ii" then the order doesn't matter as it's marked as one big thing. Otherwise, question parts marked "a" and "b" are marked separately.

    Awww no. Hope you're okay. I think paying attention throughout the year is sufficient for A level. It's what I did first year.

    Thanks! It is pretty intense but now it's done I'm kinda grateful I don't have to do 6 papers for FM (only 2 - my exam on Friday is a mixture of M1-5 and S1-4)I hope all your exams go well
    Dear God.

    Thanks

    They have all been excellent except for C3/4 (we do them both in 1 paper) in maths! I knew the FM method to solve some complex numbers but not the one used in C4 (we do complex numbers in C4) so unless the examiner is very generous I doubt out of 5 marks ill get more than 2 even tho I got the answer, as the q specifically asked for the method i didnt know. I didnt have time to do a 4 mark integration either and i probably dropped marks for silly mistakes I'm lucky CIE actually counts S2 for the A* average and S2 went very very good (sorry for the rant but I could have done so much better in C3/4 had it not been in between 4 other exams) so I might just get that A*
    FPs were great for FM, Physics and Chem also went unexpectedly well. And spanish... Well, I'm Spanish
    Fingers crossed for maths, I'm calm abt the rest
    How ready are you?

    Every paper bar the one I sat today have been slightly tricky with adapted application to the questions

    ahhh sounds brill overall then!!! so chuffed for you :-D
    basically I know I've worked my ass off so really not much more I can do at this point. I feel I have a good chance of getting an A/A* in everything except fp2 (which is tomorrow) but I only need an A overall in fm so that shouldn't be too detrimental. I am very apprehensive for the physics exams but I know that I know my stuff so just comes down to mentally preparing myself on the day ie have breakfast chill out etc haha.
    I do feel ready. still scared tho :lol:
