    Is that an SQA paper btw? Honestly I doubt sqa will have "puzzles" like that, they will probably just give you equations to solve.
    It was a Lecki and Leckie book for practice papers.

    I was doing a practice exam and came across this. I now know its simultaneous equation. But it completely threw me because I hadn't seen it in that format before. If I hadn't, that would have been a mess in my exam .

    I'm averaging 23-28 on non calculator papers... This means I'll relying too heavily on my calculator paper. I really think I'm not going to get my B which means bye bye Uni place

    Do you remember what you struggled with in the prelim? If you do, try to go over those topics. Also, in our school, the maths teachers holds a study group after school. If your school does that too, then consider going. The Wade Academy videos on youtube are really good as well.

    And.... Why not ask that girl if she wants to study maths with you after school in a coffee shop or something. Two birds with one stone!
