    Going to be horrendous. I only say this because I'm doing it in Y12 Further Maths, so much tougher for me to do well :/ Grade boundaries are too high for the amount of trick questions... How about you?

    The maths is easy, but the understanding of questions is pretty tricky. The momentum and C.O.M questions are fine, but the framework, friction and energy questions can sometimes be, as you say, trick questions. Are you finding any particular topics difficult? I'm doing it as part of Y13 Further Maths.

    Personally it's the energy ones because they always seem to make it 10 times more difficult than it needs to be. I think my major issue is I always miss parts of a question out accidently when reading it, so I miss out on key info. None of the understanding is truly THAT difficult, it's just the way they give you essays of build up with really important information almost "hidden".

    I suppose, yes. The big walls of text can be rather daunting in an exam. Oh well, it's not like it's tomorrow...

    I'm sure it'll be fine. Good luck. Are you one to talk about all the questions after the exam or not?

    Taking this tomorrow too! Just remember to write all the key facts onto your answer sheet, or highlight them; then you should be fine.

    It was horrible! I didn't find question 2 too bad but the COM question was disgusting.

    It wasn't horrific, but it certainly wasn't nice. What answers did everyone get?
