Pre-Exam
Hi there!
First time Core 3 sitter due to illness past 2 years. Did core 1 and 2 last year. Done S1 and D1 this year Just C3 and C4 left... exhausted!

Any last minute tips?

Hope you’re ok now! That’s *****y that you couldn’t sit last year.

Idk really other than general exam advice like take your time, read the question through carefully etc.

Core 3 specific I guess don’t get caught out on trig when finding the solutions, always use the exact value if you’re trying to find x or theta and have 2x or 3x and then round at the end, and don’t forget to adjust the range of values accordingly.

Was D1 anything like the IAL papers? S1 was this year and last year.

Best of luck for tomorrow

Thank you

We've got this!

I didn't do any IAL D1 or S1 papers, just the standard... I think :') Loved S1 this year, D1 was MEH. But it was always going to be MEH as it was on the bottom of my priority list as I got full marks C1 and dropped 1 mark in C2 (somehow) last year... so in my mind I divide the marks lost in D1 by the four papers :') C3 + C4 were my priority! Of course!

I sat 2017 but not 2018 (regret doing that, it was an easy paper imo) and need 91+ this time to get an A*. I think it will be fine as long as there’s not too many 1 or 2 mark trick questions
