    Hey, I am in the middle of doing the A2 exams, and naturally I am revising quite heavily. The more papers I do, the more I find I get the concepts. However, I find I am making a ton of very idiotic mistakes, especially in maths and occasionally in computing.

    For instance, today I did a M1 paper for my retake and got 72/75. After that, I tried to get into about 4 other papers and did the first question, and found that I didn't get it wrong due to method, I got it wrong because I thought that 4 - 1 = 4 or because I applied the force to the wrong direction. I spent like a good 3 1/2 hours going through papers and doing things like this.

    It is really frustrating, I want to avoid it. How would you suggest avoiding this?

    When you practice, I wouldn't just practice doing the questions. I would practice actually checking the questions (within the time limit) as well. This is so you learn to check quickly, efficiently and accurately. Sometimes this takes some skill
