    just revised p1/p2 at the mo, will do some s1 too just so im doing something, then on thurs and fri i will do some physics, simple stuff like newtons laws etc so i have some sort of understanding! im hoping we can do what we like whilst were not being interviewed (i.e. go out for lunch, shopping etc) or ill get bored.. which maths units have you done at AS?

    p1 s1 and m1. m1 was a bit of a joke since it was almost the same as physics. this year am doing p2 and 3 and m2. have nearly finished p2 but i havent done any p3 at all.

    The kinda adivice i got given was to do as many questions as well as possible but do them really well rather than trying them all. I went throught the practice paper and it seemed to take longer than an hour anyway unless u are a god i suppose.

    you think m1 was a joke, we did d1 - the biggest waste of time ever. its not even proper maths! the practice paper seems ok, ones i could do i could do properly, but ones i couldnt i didnt know where to start. ill have to just shine at interview wont i!

    i think tho if u shine at the maths test u are more likely to get in than if u shine at the interview. also at least u know roughtly what topics the test is gonna be on where anytihing could come up in the interview. i imagine that we can do what we want hopefully, with the interview offer there was a note from the JCR about entertainment and watching dvd's which sounded a little inapproaite atho i dont think u can really tell untill u get there.
