Hated S1, took me 20 minutes to draw the histograms cause I hate doing things to scale, it annoys me. I missed out a 9 mark question!!! I got 70/100 on that paper, which I am res-sitting. What about yourself?

I am doing OCR MEI but i just use books for OCR as the content is basically the same and you should know which bits you need to miss out for MEI... What do you think of the books you use in class? (I assume these are the same as mine - the dodgy orange colour one for P2?) I think these are okay to revise from as the methods are explained properly.. the only problem is the number of answers which are wrong in the back of the book, and sometimes even in the examples!

was that in the summer? i did that paper and had similar problems... also got 70. i resat it last week + it was a much nicer paper.

I use the letts revision guides + i think they're pretty good.

the past papers are quite hard, although i found that if you look from 1998 to 2002 they do tend to get a little easier over the years (or is that just my opinion?)

we have just about finished teaching at my sixth form, and were starting to go over past papers now for january
