Proof is pretty hard but complex numbers isnt. I dont like matrix transformations

That's what I thought

But if I can get 32/72 on FP1 in October, imagine what I'll get in June....

Same

As for FP1- most is fine, I personall find Proof by Induction hard, but most people in my class found complex numbers the hardest.
Heh, I'm trying to revise (read learn) FP1 at the moment. As we learnt complex numbers first, back when i was concentrating, I'm fine with them but the latter stuff like Matrix Algebra and Proof by induction was covered when I was in la la land so I'm struggling against the clock to understand the topics in-depth in time for the exam.

Whatever you do, do NOT leave induction till the end

Seriously. It does not work

Yeah I'm doing it in June
But tbf that exam was pretty important, because I didn't do FM AS, I had to do mocks so that the skl could predict me a grade,

So it contributed to my eventual C prediction

Oh god, don't Teaching is done now but haven't revised it yet! Core 3 content is done, just need to perfect papers but getting 85%+ raw in most already, I'm going to do FP1 solid from new years to going back to school, so hopefully it should be okay by then, how is it going for you?

I hate mechanics too, but haven't got the exam until June so it's just been forgotten about
I'm doing M1 and C3 in January, C3 is the important one though so I'm not too worried about M1

Same here. Tbh the actual maths in M1 is easy. Interpretation and logic skills are tested more. C3 is not bad either but I reckon this years exam will be extra hard trusting my luck :L

The actual maths is easy. However I don't take physics and sometimes the wording can catch me out; whilst any questions which require extra thinking, or imagining the situation, may cause me to struggle

It could be, but then hopefully the grade boundaries will be kind too

Lol yeah exactly xD I always draw diagrams to help and as I have no artisitic ability they can be... what do you call it ....****.

Yeah lets hope they are similar to the latest or even lower

Do you draw a new separate diagram, or use the one they provide you and write in the relevant information?

Hahaha. That picture is beyond creepy.

I draw a seperate diagram, usually larger and clearer leaving space for more labels. I sometimes draw on their diagrams if it only needs a small addition.

So what have you guys planned for new years eve?

Awww Well Happy NYE

I only just started somewhat refreshing my memory about the labour market *sigh* I honestly cannot wait to start macro, I really do despise Unit 3 (OCR) apart from the pensions & wealth/income section.

I found this if anyone wants some useful procrastination-reading to do. UCL is surprisingly high in the sex league ngl

Lol!

I wanna go to this Uni: http://www.studentbeans.com/student1...endar2113.html

EDIT: I think I've found a, albeit slightly weak, correlation...the lower the Uni in the League table, the higher in the Sex league...hmm
19. Some of you are actually revising on new years eve?
