Mathematics A-Level OCRWatch
- Don't skimp on practising large data set questions when you get onto stats. Make sure to actually familiarise yourself with what all the terminology in the large data set means, so that nothing surprises you when you sit the exam.
- A graphical calculator is pretty useful, especially if sketching graphs of functions quickly isn't a strength of yours
- If you come across something you're struggling with and your teacher says its GCSE content, go back to your revision sources for GCSE and practice it! Some stuff from GCSE comes up and there just isn't time to really go through it again in class (e.g. you need to understand histograms for stats, but it's not a large enough part of the syllabus for most teachers to bother going over them in much detail at all).
