Have you already covered all the P4 topics? Also, I would suggest you to use examsolutions before your mock to clear up confusion(s) if you have any.

I don't have any kind of tuition and as you know I'm a private candidate so I've studied P4 completely by using the examsolution website 😇

I'm just left with vectors, hopefully I'll be able to complete that the coming week.
Oh examsolutions is such a blessing! I've been using that to self-teach too, my teacher isn't the best :')

Awh vectors is easy, don't worry! You'll cover it :-)
Have you done the jan 2021 paper for practice yet? if not, you should definitely do Q7 before your mock. I lost 4 marks there.

p4 was my favourite module to learn. the jump between p4 and p3 is quite small
some parts of the syllabus are also similar to those in further maths igcse

really? question 7 is basiclly a copy paste of a question from the p4 book. they even teach you how to do it, and it is a type of question i had seen many times in c4 past papers as well

yeah I indeed lost 4 marks there. The rest were mostly all silly mistakes. :'(
that's what I get for not following the book I guess. If I am being honest, I didn't have enough time to cover all of P3, P4 and S2. I only had november and december to cover all three units. I did a lot of past papers but I unfortunately didn't come across a question quite like that. It was just a weird integral. I only got 3/5 in part a and 0/2 in part b.

For the amount of time you had, you did absolutely AMAZING! I know people who had 5 months for P4 and got a D so honestly, I'd be super proud of myself if I were you <3

Awh thank you. This helps a lot because I've been feeling sort of disappointed in myself after realizing I missed 180 in P3 and P4 combined by only 4 UMS. The examiners messed up your marking but despite that, you did absolutely amazing in all your units too, I'm super proud of you. You're the best, bless your heart <33

Yep, it's the only resource I use apart from the spec and examsolutions! I feel that if you can crack the 'challenge' questions, you're good (but the pure maths ones are a bit disappointing. the mechanics ones are the real thing. make you think for a solid 30 minutes :'D)
