    Yeah. We've finished all the topics for maths, though, so we're focusing on OCR Additional Maths now.

    Did you do the hannah's sweets mock paper this year? smh we can expect more of that this year too.
    Wait what? Why do you learn ocr too??

    Okay, now that is a lot. Do you have lots of days with two exams on the same day?

    Luckily, nope The teachers realised that it'd be easy for us to find the answer to the 'Hannah's sweets' question, so we did the November 2015 paper instead. Yeah... the wordy questions are probably the worst.

    I dunno, actually. For some reason, we switch exam board when doing ad maths, though I don't think it makes much difference. It's all still just maths.

    I seriously wish our school had let us do some of our exams last year... this year would have been a lot less stressful.

    Hey guys, I'm in year 12
    Just a tip: make sure you experiment with revision techniques. I wish I tried experimenting this time now in year 11: I felt I had found the 'perfect' revision method from some book. Turns out, it was pretty ineffective; I ended up finding my current preferred technique quite late in Easter holidays (enough time though to do well).

    If you guys have any questions feel free to quote me! Good luck.

    I have 22 exams and it hasn't kicked in yet as I'm just making sure all my coursework is of A/A* standard so I don't feel as pressured in the exams. Good luck everyone

    2 of the exams follow each other up immediately, so you do one, the invigilators collect it in, you get your second one and start straight away - we did the same thing in our mocks :/
