There are only so many things one can ask and even if the question is worded differently or has an aplied element to it, you can see straight through it once you’ve done the relevant groundwork!

Getting the really old papers is a tough task though. Perhaps we should start collecting them here.

This is a great strategy but word of caution, its not as effective now as it may have been.I used the exact strategy for GCSE’s (worked a treat!). Now however, I think that examiners have noticed how students can easily revise of mark schemes and have decided to change formats and involve more application questions, so doing this now may not be as useful as it was in the past (at least for as levels) .

Have got the calculation books linked to in the article. Brilliant stuff as you get loads of examples to work through by the end of which you can literallly attack in calculation.

And the reason we stress aiming for 100% at all times is to get you into the mindframe of not letting a single mark slip away.

It’s not difficult but some teachers make it difficult.

Will give those books a try…

I agree. And it’s a shame that most people never get to grips with these techniques and spend days stressing about a very manageable problem.
