    I usually bring some food, cereal bars and stuff and have a quiet chat with the invigilators. I meant to check my answers but once you run through a paper, you're mentally drained and don't have the energy to do that. I'll need to work on that for June, though.

    I tend to write really fast and/or use slightly unconventional methods and/or skip a lot of steps.

    I raced against a friend once and think I managed 18 minutes, but I made an arithmetic slip and lost two marks. 1 mark lost = 1 minute penalty. :lol:

    Yeah, I hate M2 so much. Probably my worst module by far. S1/2 I don't mind but I hate how long every single question is- kinda overwhelming sometimes .
