Anything in particular that takes your time up? Or is it more a general thing?

I totally mucked up M2 and D2 was okay but I cant count on it think I got high 90+ on S2 but it means I've really gotta smash FP2

oh man, I'm not even mentioning m2 because i did absolutely terrible in it. (luckily we're taking 4 a2 units.)

in d2, i know i've lost 3 marks AND then on the last question I didn't make the negative values into positives (they asked for absolute) and so my dynamic programming table has negatives in it as well etc.. I got the correct route tho. I am hoping that this one mistake doesn't cost me lots of marks !!!

Well done on s2, it was a nice paper.

That doesn't sound too bad, I think I got the wrong augmented flow on the network and got the wrong route for the first part of the last question but I don't know how hoping it's not too many marks

Jan 2012 is probably the hardest paper I've done and I've done all but 2 of them, the last 2 questions are not nice and brings up some fp1 summing series too
