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.

How does the applied stuff take so long?!

Because I have to sit and actually read the questions and understand what the **** they're saying.

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 .
