I don't suppose you have any notes on Trig Identities for the FSMQ that I could read?
Yup. If you don't understand them you probably need more practise with them - that was the case for me.

The only ones you really need to know are:

rearrange as necessary

I'll post my notes now anyway

edit: internet being stupid, can't upload them sorry

But I can explain anything if you need
3. Do any of you know how I can wake up with energy? And like feel the need to revise, instead of like dying after 2 minutes? :-(

Thank you.
The bit I don't understand is when you solve theta to get a number, then you have to do certain things depending on if you're looking for the values of sin/cos/tan. How do you know what to do? eg. Add 180

It is to do with a graph. Sin is positive in the first region (where you leave the angle as the found acute one) and the second (180-acute gives answer). Tan is positive in the first and third (180+acute angle) and cos in first and final (360-acute). Look up the trig graph as it will probably help to make sense of what I just said.

If the angle required is negative, then you go to the regions where it is negative, eg region 3 and 4 for sin.

Hope this helps you. I have a slightly inappropriate method of remembering the order I can PM you if you want
6. Biology was good

Off for 12 twelve days now, but still got my toughest exam to sit.

ok, so we get a question like:

we use the identity sin/cos=tan
sin theta/cos theta = 3/4
tan theta = 3/4

you type tan^-1(3/4) onto your calculator for the principal value. Sketch a graph and using the graph's symmetry you can work out the other values within the region.

Do you know what the graphs look like?
8. I didn't want to risk doing PE outdoors in this morning's weather (PE Monday afternoon was ****ing ridiculous I'm not doing that again) so I was like "hey parents I'm not going to school" and they were all like "cool"
9. Can I talk to someone? :/

That's just stupid! The school cares more about sucking up to OFSTED than your grades. How much I detest this system is beyond words!

Well done! why do you think statistics was marked wrong? Aside from the obvious fact that you could never get such a low grade if you tried!

Because she entered marks before reading them... Eg she predicted some ****ing marks
15. Just downloaded the maths IGCSE papers I did last year out of interested.
Wondering how on Earth I actually dropped marks in them

Now that's just plain idiotic. If you really want to, you could report her to someone!

How do you get full marks on biology?

Can't be asked... As long as it's not moderated down
