Well I wouldn't be fooled as its the only one that you can't use a calculator in, so most of the silly mistakes will mainly be arithmetic ones, so just make sure you're extremely careful when answering the questions

The problem is the number of possible alternatives a lot of questions have. For example, take this question (From Edexcel C3 Jan 2013):

Find the exact value of

The expected method:

The method I used:

(A note to be taken from this. No matter how crazy your method is, if it's correct and a specific one hasn't been asked for you can't be marked down. I like to think that reading this on my paper made an examiner somewhere laugh.)

That's okay then, I was always quite careless and tried to do several stages in my head to save the amount of writing I did, didn't really pay off though.

Lol, I was joking of course, but I learnt yesterday that in C1 I could have differentiated the circle instead of fiddling with radii, tangents and normals, though I did the former just to check.

There's a limit as to how you can amuse yourself for an hour after you've finished an exam.

Okay maybe no silver linings for you. Good luck tomorrow! I did mine in Jan, 96 UMS because I'm a boss (mostly just hardworking)

Yeah, but it's my own darn fault really, so I can't complain that much and very nice score! I'm hoping that I can get 100 UMS or something incredibly close to it!

On TSR, getting 100% in an exam seems to be the metaphorical equivalent of joining the mile high club...

Was that genuinely the first thing you thought of, or were you bored and trying to find an alternative solution?
17. Anyone got any last minute tips for AQA C2 maths exam? (Got it tomorrow)

Also, I've done all the past papers from 2005-2013, are there any other papers I could use? Tried finding extra logs questions on google but had no luck :/

I'm not explaining this to you on here.

It was the first thing I immediately thought of, and my problem is that if I see a method I know will get me to the correct solution, I launch into it immediately without thinking if there is a better way. I was bricking it before results because none of the mark scheme mentioned anything like the method I used.

Solve the simultaneous equations.

(Original post by L'Evil Fish)
Urgh, I'll wait for half term

Simultaneous equations!

a = 25 - 25r

(25 - 25r)/(1-r)=25
Etc
Thanks! Both of you are legends!
