# Edexcel D1 - 17th June, 2016 [Exam discussion] watch

Think I have a solid knowledge of all the basics but I've got a feeling there will be some really awkwardly worded questions that I won't know what to do. I also need to learn the definitions because I still can't define a 'graph' or a 'tree' xD
I feel the same way. It's so like Edexcel to drop a "lovely" worded question that's worth like 5/6 marks...
2. Is anyone excited for this exam? Well i guess more pleased to do this exam than C1,C2,S1,M1 and FP1?
3. jan 16 question 5d can anyone explain why the answer is (3,-4)
4. Can someone list all the definitions we need to know please
5. [QUOTE=pecora;65855045]Flow charts and digraphs on Dijkstra/Prim's or something. I'm telling ya, it's gonna come up.

Flow chart question going to be like "what does this algorithm achieve?"
and I'm going to be like

I'm not too sure, everywhere I look seems to have different definitions and different words we need to know. It's Edexcel official so it should be all. What I'm going to do is spend 1 or 2 hours right before the exam just memorising every D1 related word I can find, just to be on the safe side.
11. Need help! Cant figure out whether or not to leave a question behind and go ahead I mean, I spend like 10 minutes at times on those tricky 2/3 mark questions. Is it not worth? I just started doing D1 papers today so im a bit sketchy about the techniques in writing this exam although i did notice that I always lose out on about 15-20 because of time management issues. Theory is alright I suppose :/ Currently at C's... I've got about 12 hours to jump to an A. Possible? Any tips guys?

couldn't hurt i suppose... I have a lot of gaps in my knowledge but i get the gist of everything... praying for an easier paper.
13. Hi guys, for a precedence table, would the source node be activity 0 or 1?Thanks

If you can't answer a question after 2 minutes of reading it just move on and come back to it later. I personally don't find D1 timing very difficult, I can usually answer all questions but the last within an hour, giving me plenty of time to go back over any I might get stuck on. What I'd recommend at this point is just doing as many practice questions as you can in the topics you find tough. The worst thing that can happen is you stumbling upon a question, not remembering how to do it, causing you to lose over 5 marks. So long as you have a basic understanding of each topic you should be fine.

Mhm praying for an easy paper but expecting a hard paper. I thought most
of the modules this year were tricky compared to past papers.

I've always used 1 but apparently you have to do 0, so I think I'll be using 0.

jan 16 question 5d can anyone explain why the answer is (3,-4)
The vertex of the R region that would give the minimum value for P is around there. It's not exactly -4, but remember the question specifies integers, so you round to -4. I think, btw, I'm not a teacher or anything.
I've always used 1 but apparently you have to do 0, so I think I'll be using 0.
Thanks. I'll probably look over mark schemes and see what they do.
