My friends sat P1 and I was able to speak to two of them about the paper. There was no nasty vector question which is good to hear but apparently a bad one on functions. Overall, I hear it was quite nice.

What variant did they do?
I did 12. Overall I thought it was tougher than the other past papers but probably that's just becasue I'm not as good at maths as I'd like to think :rofl:
In mine the functions question was quite easy.

For maths I did 12 and for physics 21 I think.

How is Revision Going: eating past papers

Economics p2 tomorrow. Is grammar really important? Can I lose marks if I have some minor mistakes?

Maths p1 went great!! However it was more difficult than all the past papers I solved. There was one really ugly question.
