Hi guys,

I started study leave last monday, and I covered the whole c1 course for OCR MEI. I was really confident as all the questions I did in the textbook and chapter assessments turned out to all mainly be correct.

On Thursday I started doing past papers, yet the results were not very good. Somehow, I keep getting around 60% on the past papers and I just don't see how =/. At this point it is really breaking my will to work and this constant idea of failure is in my head.

Is it me or does it happen for everyone when they start past papers?

Is their anything anyone suggest to improve my technique or something?


Thanks alot guys

I found that when I started doing C2 papers after finishing the OCR course, they seemed impossible. But now that I've done around 10 of them, they're really simple and the questions are really predictable. Just keep doing more past papers and avoid looking at the solutions unless you think to yourself "What the **** does this question mean?!"

Carry on with all the past papers, you can use the mark schemes to see how the answer is meant to be solved and try and learn from that, or even post some of the more difficult questions on here so people can help work them out

I think the best way to do it is to get worked answers off a teacher so you can see how you're supposed to tackle the more challenging questions

you should write on another piece of paper and do the past papers over and over again.

Practice the questions you get stuck on in the exam, in the book without looking at the examples to help you, do it within a reasonable time limit otherwise you will run out of past papers if you don't do that.
