Anyway, I done mine today, it went pretty well. I made a stupid mistake though, one part of a question had me confused and I worked it through but I was kind of unsure. Then I saw in the question the word "hence" and I rubbed out my working and started again taking a different approach as I thought I had to use information I'd worked out in a previous part of the question. I didn't get time to work my answer right through to the end but when I talked to me teacher afterwards she said that I had it right first time . Apart from that I didn't really have anything that everything seemed fine so I think I should have done okay.

I think I did pretty well considering most of my class either failed or got a bare pass, and the teachers said it was one of the most challenging prelims so far.
Hoping for an A in the final

We got paper 1 today, I got 54/60 so I'm delighted with that mark (that question I mentioned earlier on was the only marks I dropped ). Only about 1/3 of the people taking higher maths this year passed the prelim though, even though it was apparently quite an easy prelim.

And yeah, there's a huge jump up to higher. I think if the course is done over two years there wouldn't be a huge difference, but over one year its a high increase in difficulty and workload.

We were told this year that our prelim is gonna be really hard , cause last year someone got an A in the prelim but then got a c in the final exam...and the sqa refused appeal because they said the prelim was too easy...i have it tomorrow so i should probably go and do some revision jus now before it gets too late...i probably wont though
