ICT written was manageable. I guess the only new thing that hasn't come for the past papers, was the computer models.
Gonna do practical in an hour.

That model question was a bit confusing though.

What was the correct answer for the software they asked?
Spread Sheet or CAD

I used the badge they've provided, but you can use any other vector graphic provided that it's fit for the scenario

But i used the hiking one because it had enough space on the background to write the text on. But on the provided badge which was named logo had extra text on it like the full form of OPR so i did not used it. They just said to use the appropriate picture and be fit for purpose but not amending the image so thats why i did not used it. Further more thwy said that the picture is to be 8 by 8 meaning square not circle.

ICT written was actually good for you guys? Dude,i couldn't manage to finish the questions properly. I feel so bummed. The computer model was crappy but what do you think the grade boundaries will be like?
Yeah in practical the source code was the only question I left. Moreover, my stupid printer shut down at the end.
Overall, paper 1 was bad but paper 2 was meh-okay.
I'm worried about maths now....2013 and 2012 peers had the best paper ever. But Jan 2017 maths was quite hard I suppose.
I'm ranting so much man...and Ramadan is coming. Exams and Ramadan...perfect combination ever 😒

Spreadsheet. That's what they're saying. What did you write?

Thank you, that's one mark down the drain.
Physics is kept for tomorrow, and maths well i'll think about it later. I have business with physics, so currently learning that.
How's it going for you

Meh. I keep procrastinating so much. Maths is a daily dose of past papers and physics maybe later tonight.
Also,I despise matrix transformations.
And lines of symmetry.
All the bestfor your exam😊

Calm down mate and relax. Simply because of exams, don't sacrifice your sleep.
And, for maths go through a few regional papers too and Unit 5 in Book 2, complete summary.
For physics, heck with the specification and learn the important ones.
And most importantly, think positively, you'll be able to go through this phase.
