now i would loose the will to live on questions like that
lol, well... if you see something like 0.1/50, it looks scary.

But think of it as 1/5 which is 0.2. Then consider the decimal places.

Equally 0.002 x 3600 is scarier than 2 x 36.

it's not that hard...
lol ?

draw a diagram first. then make an equation:

110km/h*1h/60min*1m/60s * Xs = 60km/h*1h/60min*1m/60s* Xs + 0.1km
then:
(110-60)/3600 *X = 0.1
solve for X.
50X = 360
X= 360/50 = 720/100

dont do all the calculations first.
larger numbers = harder calculations. xD

section 1 has 35 questions and is marked out of 9

Section 2 has 27 questions and is marked out of 9

Section 3 is an essay marked out of 15

The test is out of 33

19/33 is a good score and guarantees you an interview with ucl so long as 5/9 5/9 and 9/15 are scored in each of the sub tests

each question is worth more in section 2?
they value : sec 1<sec2
and sec 3 the most...

i'm dreading any physics q's on the science bit. i'm not that worried about the essay, tbh (although i'll probably be eating my words come 5 weeks time!) and the logic doesn't look that horrendous either. it's really the stats analysis & the physics q's.
also, the book that i have (kaplan) is telling me that i need to know how to do trig and pi calcs without a calculator. anyone else found that?

well IF they do have a trig question on the test it wont be those mega hard ones.
it'll be either 0,30,60,45,90 degree questions. and their multiples i suppose if they feel mean.

math questions without calculators hardly ever ask anything beyond addition, subtraction, multiplication, division.

it is afterall GCSE math

that's what i thought! i mean, i can understand asking something like sin(30). fine. doable.
but sin(72)? whattttt?
basically, kaplan is taking me for a ride. fools.

okay. for 1. never trust kaplan for anything.
they dont know anything .......... -_-;;
sin 72. seriously
find someone who can do that without a calc. and ill do somehting ridiculous!
well... 2009 applicant for medicine.. =]]

exactly. honestly, these people!
if there is someone out there who knows how to do sin72 without a calculator, tell me your secret. i'll exploit you as a maths genius on tv!

I can think of two ways: by geometric considerations of a pentagon, or by using complex numbers.

Which is not exactly GCSE level...complex numbers...come on.

Trig is only really TOUCHED on at GCSE.
Well, you can do it by considering the geometry of a pentagon then. I was only providing a couple of options, so that those with different knowledge bases could approach the problem appropriately...

I doubt they'll put anything hard on trig, if anything you can always make an educated guess as they are multiple choice questions if I remember correctly...

rather than start a new thread - does anyone have an idea of how to solve this?
thanks

My mother still makes tea with the old saying:
"one spoon per person and one for the pot".
We used to buy a packet of tea every week but since grandmother came to live with us
we have to buy two packets every fifth week and one otherwise.
How many people were at home before grandmother arrived?
A 4
B 5
C 6
D 9
E 11

EDIT - Figured it out - its a (4)

Does anyone have a list of the physics topics we need to know for the BMAT?
