    Hi all i'm aiming for 90+ UMS in C1 this summer. I'm feeling confident with the topics as I have already completed C2. Are there any tips to get into the 90's? Thanks!

    Past papers, Solomon papers, and distinctly understanding every topic, not just regurgitating methods.

    I used that method and got 95 (silly mistakes including calculating the area of a triangle threw me off of full marks ...)

    I did similar to Mr Inquisitive (excluding solomon papers) and got 93 due to silly mistakes (i.e. for an inequalities question I said that the length of a rectangle was more than OR EQUAL TO 0.... haha)

    Still, 95 in C2 was nice, considering I was very worried after answering the whole exam in radian mode (they asked for exact answers, only the correct angle-mode can give them, I didn't realise and just stated a long list of decimals.)

    That reminds me, BE VERY AWARE OF WHAT ANGLE-MODE YOU ARE ON DURING A C2 PAPER!

    I got 95 in C1 - silly mistakes

    SOLOMON PAPERS - they are the best.
    Finish all past papers, then do all solomon papers, so when you eventually come to the exam it will seem SOOO easy compared to solomon papers, and that will also make you feel more confident making it less likely for you to make a silly mistake.

    C1 and C2 really aren't too bad, the papers are all very similar!
    I did about 7-8 past papers for each and ended up with 96 and 95 respectively, as with other people I was torn away from 100 by silly mistakes!

    I got 81 in S1. I've so far found C2 a lot easier so with C1 I want to get as many marks as possible so I can leave myself room for C3 and C4
