    What exactly are we allowed to bring in to the exam apart from black pens? I was told by my school that I'm only allowed 2 black pens for the exam.

    Hi there, what equipment do we need? Should we write in pencil or pen?
    Should I take a ruler too?

    Having read an above post, are we not allowed blue pens?

    Certainly no more than 1 hour. I aim for 40-45 minutes.

    I got the same except for F which I couldn't figure out, any tips/advice for that one would be greatly appreciated. Geometry is definitely not my strong point.

    Good point haha.. but you can observe where the actual areas are, even with the mistake.

    Compass is very useful for Q4 usually
    Take a pencil and rubber for super rough working eg.for multiple choice parts (although do write down all working which might merit marks in the later questions)
    Are we not allowed rulers?

    C, I believe, due to the angles being subtended by the same arc.
