    For maths i did some AQA papers aswell as my MEI board ones, just because some subjects were similar and its good to see how other boards word questions just in case it pops up like that on your exam i guess

    Time Travel

    If you have completed all of your Past Papers this early AND you do not feel that you have a complete understanding then you have not used the Past Papers effectively

    I find past papers have increased my understanding, especially in trigonometry!

    However, I did all of the logarithm questions in my textbook and I actually find log questions the easiest, perhaps this is why?

    EDIT: Why time travel? :P

    So you could go back in time and slow down with the papers



    I think it would have been better to use the text to ensure that you understood before starting the Past Papers

    Nothing is wasted

    I think the new plan is good

    If you do other boards just be careful that you do not panic over unusual questions

    Soloman papers are also useful, just do as many as you can. The more questions you do, the better off you'll be. But remember to return o your exam board a day or so before exams so as to get used to the format and question styles again.

    Okay thanks TenOfThem, great having someone really experienced like you to talk about this to as I am self teaching, really appreciate it! thanks

    And yea, I did all of the C1 edexcel papers way back in january (dont ask why) haha,,, they are completely different to NICCEA!

    Also, would you happen to know if I need to know about i,j vector notation for CCEA maths? It only says "Force as a localised vector." on the spec (http://www.rewardinglearning.org.uk/...2&v=0&q=28&d=d) and NOTHING else... it doesn't come up on past papers.. but I can't afford to risk it :/

    thanks Tenofthem

    I do not know the board but, from your description, I would guess that you just need to understand that force has direction and magnitude
