    Exams are round the corner, less then 10 weeks now.

    So made this thread that we can use for various things from discussing revision techniques and websites to question predictions and after sitting both exams we can talk about answers we got and possible grade boundaries.

    Enjoy!!!!

    Ah I would but only the teachers have access to it atm, so you should ask your teacher for a copy if they aren't giving it to you for a mock. I don't have a link sorry

    Which one? There were a couple I think, the worst was the one on the second paper where you had to draw a line of best fit and it looked linear but it was actually a curve

    How did you do? Do you mind if I ask what mark or grade you got?

    Hey.

    I know this was a month ago, can I ask if you remember any questions at all from the mock? The wording, topics, anything?

    Thanks, dude.

    Depends on the question. If the question gives you values limited to 2 significant figures then your answers should be 2 sig figs.

    Should I give 3 sf unless the question specifies something about degree of accuracy then?
