Hi guys, I'm sure there are a lot of you out there who, like me, struggle with accuracy. While I know every concept and have done many practice papers, I still find myself loosing silly marks here and there. Has anyone had this problem and overcome it?

Not entirely sure what you mean but
If you work a question to one more dp than you eventually quote. you will be fine.
Sometimes mark schemes depend on you working with the more accurate figure from part a in part b. So if you have answers in terms of pi etc or answers to 6dp from part a, use them in later parts.
Make sure you use sf or dp as questions asks

Honestly just do lots of questions and make a mental list of everything you need to check once you finish a question. I know exactly what you mean.
i.e for integration.
Check you added +c
Make sure your limits are correct
Double check algebra and arithmetic. Check with your calculator if possible.
Part of being good at maths means being good at checking, so definitely practice this. It has helped me a lot.
