I can't beleive it. For some reason I had it in my head that it was on friday, but looked at my timetable today and saw it was tomorrow. Either way I havent done nearly enough revision ( about an hours worth). Can you give me some tips for cramming or pointers for what is likely to come up. Im really in the **** here. Im predicted an A aswell! ****

cheers guys

I'm on AQA.... I'm not looking forward to it. Stats is not my strong point!

You need to know the Least Squares regression line equation and how to work it out

covarience of xy / varience of x = gradient of regression line

pmcc = covarience of xy/ (sdy x sdx)

and the probability stuff of course (shiver!)

First of all, just relax. I know that's hard to do, but if you're predicted an A, then you must have been working hard throughout the year. That means you've automatically got a head start over people who've bummed their way through. You'll be surprised at how much you remember of it. And remember they give you most of the formulae in the exam, so you don't need to worry about that. Look up on the board's website exactly which ones they give you.

You're lucky in that Maths is more a skills-based subject, rather than a learn-y subject - you could feasibly go in having done nothing and still have a reasonable chance of being able to answer the questions. As other people have suggested, do some practice papers, and go through any bits in detail that you found hard in the year.

Then BED. I can't stress that enough. I've found that Maths is one of the most difficult subjects to do when you're tired - your brain just turns to liquid goo when you look at the questions if you haven't had enough sleep. I know it's hard when you feel you haven't done enough, but there's a fine line to tread between doing revision and doing your head in. I seriously recommend that you go to bed. Quite soon, actually. If your exam's in the afternoon, then you could go on a bit longer, but if it's in the morning, really, just go to sleep.

Have faith in your brain!
