    Hi, I'm getting worried about not being able to complete part 1 on time, I'd be doing the Physics, Maths and Advanced Maths and Physics sections. I'm much less worried about Part 2 as I just seem to prefer that style a question (unless it's electricity lol).

    Any general tips would be appreciated. However, any tips relating to timing would be most useful.

    Finally, except for the past and specimen papers (of course) has anyone been able to find any particularly useful/similar style materials to practice from?

    Thanks

    Hii, I'm doing it tomorrow as well (but bio, chem and maths). For section 1, the best advice i could give is do the questions you think you can do first and those that look like a real struggle after. Also stick to 25mins max per section, that leaves about 5mins at the end to go back to the ones you left out.

    They've obviously designed it to put us under time pressure and honestly I don't think many people can finish it all within the time given. I would say focus on doing a few questions right rather than rushing through them all and getting them all wrong if you get what i mean?

    Good luck!!!!!
