    Can you share any experience with me? It was my worst performance among all the real and mock tests EVER!!!!!!!!!!(I never missed A in the past exams tests, but now I have a strong feeling that this time I might only be awarded a B...) Espesically for Paper 2!!
    Both the Mechanics and Statistics are Damm Hard!

    For mechanics parts,the esaiest sections,such as equillibrium of a rigid body, are tested in a very strange and complicated way,(I wrote nothing in the first questions,I did not even know to which section the question is related) but the questions concering the hardest part,say SHM and M.I., onwhich I spent most of my revision time, were the easiest and straightforward. I even had the feeling that my revision through helped me nothing.

    For Statistics part, in the t-test questions, the expression "identical twins" remined me nothing of using the "paird test", and instead I wrongly used "two-sample tests", because I thought there are two sample!!! Similarly, I used the "Normal distribution instead of the T-distribution for the last question( I chose the Statistics one). Who knows whether I will be awarded any credit when I used the wrong formulae in the very beggining of the questions?

    Anyway, I suppose my grade will be below 65/100 for the paper 2 and how did you guys do? Also, I suppose there is no chance to be admitted to ICL if I get B in FM, especially when I am applying to the Maths department, is there?
