ME!!! and im ******** my pants.... I sat a mock paper at school on monday this week, and I got a bloody U. I am sooooooo failing maths and I don't know what to do!! The mock paper was SOOO hard, it was MAY 2012 so hopefully the real one will be easier... fingers crossed. 

Does ayone have good advice on how to revise Maths? I've jus been doing past papers and reading textbooks and MyMaths, but because my Mock grades are so cray, it actually puts me off learning, coz i already feel like a failure! Is it just me? x

Dont panick otherwise it will affect your performance in the exam. Are there any chapters of C1 that you find approachable? Its so close to the exam if you feel like a failure theres no point in cramming your head trying to learn the whole book. Choose a few chapters that hold most of the marks in the exam and learn those properly, a couple today and a couple tommorow? Take it in slow steps at a time, theres still enough time to get a decent grade, remember dont panick :)

Anyone got any thoughtson what may come up, done good revision just hope the paper is nice

Posted: 13-01-13 15:55 by Edward Pinches

proving that sn = n/2 (2a+(n-1)d) is likely to come up.

If anyone wants to know how, this is how to prove it:

Sn = a + (a+d) + (a+2d) +....... a+(n-1)d

now write it backwardsL

sn= a+(n-1)d.... (a+2d)+(a+d)+a

now add them two together.

this gives  2sn= n(a+(n-1)d)

therefore sn = n/2 [2(a) + (n-1)d ]

Does anyone think the grade boundaries will be low?

Posted: 14-01-13 21:04 by B.Yousef

hav no idea....buhh i hope so

Posted: 14-01-13 21:09 by Waqar Khanny :)

Me too! It brought like half my year to tears! If they are low I hope they will be very very very low!

Posted: 14-01-13 21:26 by B.Yousef

I really think theyre gna be low cos literally EVERYONE I know who sat it hated it! Like across colleges 

Posted: 14-01-13 22:23 by Lamise Hassan

But how low will they be? Like some people say 58/75 is low but it's not that low

Posted: 14-01-13 22:40 by B.Yousef

Hmm for an A it won't be any lower than around 58/75 :/ Like last Jan was 62/75 - the 100 UMS will probably become easier tho

Posted: 14-01-13 22:45 by Lamise Hassan

it wasnt too bad tbh just the last question and that 2^y I realised how to do after the exam lol
