Anyone else really struggle with time? Like all these past papers I'm getting 65 and over but if I time myself I literally cannot finish the paper

Is it certain questions that you need to take your time with or just all topics? Good luck with the exam!

I also struggle with reading clocks, big hand is minutes, small hand is hours - I only just figured this out! - as far as i am aware it is not in the further maths specification so we should safe and sound Also, I think there is only 60 minutes in an hour. I am pleased that I able to help you out with this question.

Poor effort with that joke

Could’ve done better

What is up with this chat...? I mean it's further maths what did I expect.

Anyway, timing is quite evil on further maths. Unlike maths, they give you a mark for 3 line of working instead of 1 line of working out.

My mock was easy for some reason but recent practice past papers I'm failing on time. I think I spend too long staring at questions I'm stuck on.

Usually it's just questions where I just make a slip and have to restart or look back through my workings.

Only real topic I can think of is the substition integration questions, I always struggle to balance between trying to plan what I should use as my substituion by thinking ahead and just getting stuck into it.

Might be obvious, but just practise them. The more you practise the quicker you get at doing each step. I would recommend getting the substitution right because you don't want to jump into it and half way through the question you realise you've made an error right at the beginning cause that's frustrating. If you don't have loads of time even just go to a question bank and practise just picking the right substitution- you don't have to complete all the integrals, although that's good to do too.

How is everyone feeling about tomorrow

I’d say I’m pretty confident. Hbu?

I’m naïvely hoping none of that C + iS caca comes up, because it’s annoying.

I do need to go over complex numbers again though, because the proofs of multiple angle formulae by de Moivre’s theorem are something I haven’t looked at in a while.

what's C + iS caca ?

Original post by amrr

what's C + iS caca ?

It’s the nonsense with sequences that comes up in the first chapter of the year 2 core pure book, where you have two series (usually denoted by C and S) and you consider a new series C + iS to find simplified expressions for C and S.

That’s one of the 2 topics i did not cover. How often does it come up in past papers?

I’ve only ever seen it twice that I remember - once in core pure 2 from 2019, once in one of the core pure papers in one of the mock sets. I reckon it’s likely to come up, unfortunately.

Who else has another exam tomorrow 😬
