    anyone doing this exam?
    the january exam was easy but i got an E.
    Due to silly mistakes like missing a comma out - lost me 4 marks out of 6 :eek:
    Im revising hard for this exam.

    Remember make your answers clear
    show all working
    Use all the space to space your answers
    Read the question twice at least
    Remember your calculator is a valuable tool when doing the simplex algorithm

    And good luck revising and for the exam.

    What are you doing for your revision, you have books or is there revision sites

    after the physics exam today, my maths teacher gave me past papers with markschemes,
    also i will be working from the D1 exercise book.

    I am taking it but wish I wasn't. Took the exam in January and after getting Bs and As on ALL the past papers, I scored 65/100 UMS. I think the fact of the matter is, id rather they just gave me blank paper rather than an actual sheet to answer on. I could have done the simplex algorithm if they had just let me do it from scratch... It was such an awkward format. Seeings as I have 2 physics exams on the same day, and that getting an A in f maths is unrealistic in comparison... Im gonna just leave my C as it is, and sit the exam knowing basically nothing! Lol.

    Thats a bad timetable you got there.
    Im sure u will do fine if u learn the basic algorithms.
    Its a matter of try try again until u get it right i suppose.

    And that simplex algorithm in jan was not all that nice.
    I jus about had enough time to finish the paper as well.

    But im gonna study hard and hopefully get an A.

    Good luck
