does anyone else find that they get most of the marks on a maths paper but as there is no error carried forward you can make a tiny mistake and lose 8 marks? today I did a past paper and got 52 but lost 8 mark because on one of the questions I accidentally divided by 5 instead of subtracting right at the start. for me that is easily the difference between getting into university or not, does that happen to anyone else?
I my opinion its complete BS that theres no error carried forward with such a small amount of questions.

I know what you mean! Mechanics 1 is my last exam but you have to make sure you don't mess up at the start of a question.
