    to make sure my calculator isnt lying to me, i do it twice if i have doubts, and then reverse calculations to make sure the answer is right. then on questions with ridiculous numbers, write down the long winded set of decimals that follow in the working out space and round it in your answer so the examiner can see what went through your head. since you got a calc, use it even for easier sums.

    I'm the same, just looking at the unofficial mark schemes made me realise how many questions I'd misread, there's so much pressure needing to get almost full marks

    Yeah, there's so much I revised that didn't come up on the paper, hopefully that means it'll be on calculator. I'm just going to do as much revision as possible without neglecting my other subjects
