Its actually okay, but sometimes I forget the basics like completing the square when I haven't done a past paper in a while.

C2 is more fun though

I find Edexcel's papers rather easy compared to other exam boards like AQA (I despise them) -.-

The hard bit for me are those long worded questions. I usually just skim read.

I did C1 last year, my best tip is to be confident with fractions, they are much easier to work with than decimals (remember you don't have a calculator!)

I really cba to do that for the core modules -.- I usually only underline words in M1 and S2.

Are you doing AQA Biology? If so how which ISA did you do?

So much easier, especially for C2: I barely use a calculator

I've done EMPA last year. They're horrible. I changed sixth form so I've done the ISA for this yr, and they're more easier than the EMPA. What do you think you've got?
