    How much hard work was it? Would you say it was natural ability? How regular did you study throughout the year?

    i agree with the natural ability (for me that is) - my sister did her masters in maths and she showed me the amount of work she did during a levels and lol it was a ridiculously huge amount hahah lol but she said she worked really hard for it and ended up getting A* for maths and A for further maths.

    Read through all of the questions before you start because then your mind subconsciously thinks about how to answer the questions, even when you're doing a different one.
