Ouch that sucks!

Well, when i did higher I got a C in the prelim and an A in my final. So don't be disheartened by low prelim results.

Just keep practising.

I just did a second prelim (Unit 3 questions) and got 87%, so obviously I'm delighted. Especially considering that I got 52% in the first prelim. wink.gif

did my second prelim a few days ago.. not sure how it went to be honest, paper I was ok, but paper II had me doing entire sheets of A4 full of working for some of the answers, shoving in the wrong limits was probably a reason blink.gif i really need an A to be confident in doin AH next year unsure.gif

yeah, well, anyone will do better than me! i did my second prelim the other week, and it was horrendous, i've never seen anything like it! the school decided that they didn't want to make the prelim too easy, oh no, so they go to the other extreme and make it almost impossible to pass! i got 40% when the pass mark was 55%. Only 5 people passed in my class. I was gutted with my result, but i knew it was coming. i seem to be able to do all the past papers fine though which is pretty strange, so that makes me feel a tad better in the hope that i might actually be able to answer the questions in the exam! lol wink.gif

oh sad.gif na i know what you mean though, all the past papers are fine then the prelims are a hell of a lot harder, but i think they just do it to scare the living daylights out of you tongue.gif

Yeah i know what you mean about the prelims being harder. I think they do it so that you'll find the actual exam easier, even though it makes you panic at the time.

I have my second maths prelim tomorrow.. I'm not looking forward to it. I feel like I know the stuff, cause I can do it at home with past papers but when it comes to the actual thing I struggle over stupid things, but hopefully I'll be alright..

well done! they say you should go up by 10% from the prelim to the exam, but that's even better!

When I was at school they admitted that the prelims they gave us were made harder just to test us. They then said if you get a High C, you could, with decent amout of revision gain a grade B.

That in my case only worked in Intermediate 2 English where I had a D in my prelim and I jumped to a B in the final exam.

those here last year will remember how badly I bombed the whole course last year. I got 2% in the prelim last year and shockingly...a No Award in the final...passed the NABS though so that was a blessing. This year so far I've got full marks in the 1st and 2nd unit nabs (wh00000t) and I've been getting around 60-70% in all the AB tests weve done (my college LOVE to test us) so hopefully I'll get a B in the prelim next week...I'm shitting it tbh.

I failed mine, but fortunately I'm allowed to stay in higher. I've just moved like a month ago and i think that is why i failed. The school were really nice about it though. I'm scared now though, because they're paying money to put me forward...so i can't fail this time. I hate pressure...!

Well done to all those that passed!
