The trigonometry is driving me mad. I also have a tutor which doesn't seem to be helping. I can just never figure out which side the hypotenuse, opposite and adjacent is.
you struggling on the normal trig, do you understand that there is 3d trig as well, which is 1000x harder.

My target is a scale 6.
Hopefully in the mocks i'll get a 5. Then I can improve further from there.
How did you find the Mock?

Thank you. I'm practising to get the hang of it but I always end up with the wrong answer because of choosing the wrong formula. I know what SOHCAHTOA is but I get confused on when to use it.

Thanks. I'm learning how to not stress in an exam so hopefully I won't make any stupid mistakes in the mocks that matter.
9. I hate it since when I look at a question I don't know how to answer it. Especially when my grades are going up and down from a 6 to a 5. Even though I love learning the method and how it's used to find the answer.
