    Hi,

    D1 exam is on the 9th of June and I'm aiming to score really high, what are some other resources outside of textbook questions and papers to try and get a high UMS score?

    The IAL papers tend to be harder than the UK ones, you might like to try those: http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...rs/d1-edexcel/

    The main issue I had with D1 was timing - you have a lot of computation to do in quite a short amount of time. I think the only thing that can help with this is practice applying the algorithms quickly without mistakes.

    Very true, timing is key. The concepts themselves aren't too difficult and the questions are pretty repetitive as well, really want to hit 100 in D1 so I'll work on those IAL papers thanks

    Good luck!

    The only questions I've seen them throw curve balls with are the linear programming ones - see, for example June 2014 [8], and January 2014 (IAL) [8] - since they can throw in some strange inequalities or conditions.

    Ask your teacher to mark your past papers. It's very easy to think you've done well when in fact you've not applied an algorithm correctly or have not written down enough to show your method.
