    I reckon I can learn them for the exam but I don't think I'd be able to thing of all of them simultaneously in my head whilst I select which one I need for a part of a question nor do I wish to write all of them down for every question.

    Is it a good idea to write them all down on the first page or something and just turn back when I need them? Or perhaps ask for a sheet of paper before the exam so I can write them down when it begins (if that's allowed).

    Thanks in advance.

    For Add Maths, our teacher recommended writing them down on the first page so you don't have to write them down again and again (like you said!). That being said, make sure you learn them/write them down correctly.

    Hope this helps.

    Yeah aha, I'd still learn them as forgetting some when writing them at the beginning of the exam would sure worry me for the rest of the exam. xD
    Thanks! karmacrunch

    Although, where would I write it on the first page? I do OCR maths and I'm sure you can't write around your work as it says 'please do not write here' and I don't want to put it in an answer box that has nothing to do with SUVATs in case they think I'm stupid. Is there room elsewhere? Are you allowed to write in formula booklets or allowed to ask for a spare sheet of paper as in written exams?

    You could write them on the question paper for a start.

    You're welcome.

    I'm on OCR MEI but I've just looked at an OCR paper. I'd probably write them somewhere on the question booklet but I would ask a teacher just to double check.

    I doubt they'd think it's stupid. It's probably better to write them out anyway so you can look at them when you need to. ++ You could always cross them out at the end, if you don't want an examiner to mark them. (:

    Edit: Mr M is a teacher. ^^

    By the way, I've examined M1 for OCR. Lots of candidates write the SUVAT equations down on their answer books. We don't think they are dim for doing so!

    Ah okay, I just thought if I wrote them close to a question that was clearly about something unrelated to SUVATs it'd make me look bad xD
    But thanks
