Well, my teachers (and various revision guides) say that it's better if you ease your way into the paper. So start at the beginning, and although 2 hours IS a long time, you'll probs have lots of time to go over and check stuff. You won't be THAT tired, and the last question is always gonna be trick as its the a* bit, so I think it doesn't matter if you start at it or not... Hope this helps a bit :)

Although it's a long exam, i suggest you just go through it from start to end because the easier questions will have warmed up your brain so you can tackle the harder ones with a mathematical brain. I'm with a different exam board so mi exam is slightly shorter than yours but i assume it will be the same case that you can finish it in half the time and then have plently of time to check over the paper so you won't be as tired as you think at the end :) good luck! x

I'm doing OCR maths tmoro aswell, and every pass paper ive done ive finished in around 50 mins or an hour so i might just leave the exam room early or force myself to go through every single question cos silly mistakes always happen to me . Also a tip, my teacher said that vectors and circle theorems are likely to come up in this paper 3 so revise those, good luck :)

Just go through everything in the order they come, because the easy questions will also build up your confidence, so by the end of the paper you should be ok.

Also you wont be that tired, 2 hour history or classical civilisation exams are worse!
