    Hi.

    I'm with MEI and the C2 exam is today week. C1 and C2 are the only exams where I can realistically get in the high nineties, but the problem is that I keep making tiny, small mistakes. For example, in my C1 exam I wrote down coordinates when they asked for roots.

    For those who have gotten 100% before, how do you avoid making these sorts of errors?

    Practice questions, before you answer a question - highlight (underline or something) what bits of information you are given and what form your answer should be in, whether it's co-ordinates or surds or a function eetc.

    I also look after every line, whether what I written makes sense/is correct based on the previous line, whether I have messed up a calculation or anything like that, and if I have time at the end of the exam, double check things.

    Practice, practice, practice, practice, practice, practice. Read questions thoroughly and of course have confidence in yourself.
