[size="3"]Eek! Feelin alot better 2day after my English exam but this maths one is gettin me nervous again! Ive passed all my NABS but then scored really low in my prelim. I knew I couldnt appeal with the mark that I got anyway, but our school hasnt even done a second prelim! Stupid mistakes really throw me and if the percentage needed to pass reaches anything above 50% I think ive failed already unsure.gif Oh well, Good Luck 2 every1 else anyway!

Just in case you haven't seen this other topic, we've just put up a multiple choice test, with 10 questions for you to try. You could maybe try them as a warm-up before getting stuck in to the past papers smile.gif

most prelims are alot harder than any past papers though so try not to worry too much

just do past papers at the weekend and you would at least be able to get a B/C in the final exam well thats my plan just try and find time at the end to look over your work and make sure you use communication such as 'a limit exists since -1<a<1' this can pick you up some valuble marks.

if you need any help with past paper questions just post on here and someone will help so have some faith and you will do good

good luck im sure u will do fine smile.gif

Same I want to get an A anyway... I pretty much enjoy maths a lot, I like challenging questions unless they're to do with log xD I hate it.

I think I'm alright about it, but panicking cause physics is the day after and I really suck at it. I want to get a B but I've been getting C's a lot >.> So I don't know what to do whether to study maths or physics loads

I'd recommend doing both, but slightly swaying to the Physics side, as it seems you will cope withthe mathematics exam fine.

Yep completely agree with claire! just work this w/e and it should be okay - im resitting maths this year having got a C last year - dont know why to be honest lol - its going good this year passed my prelims well and hoping for an A wink.gif
Also if you have no clue for a question part a and you have to use that answer for part b - if you know what to do for part b just put a random number in and you should get all the marks if your method is correct.

Good Luck all I am trying to study business and maths this weekend business being on the monday so I probably will not be able to spend as much time as I like on maths but its the business-maths-physics people I feel sorry for - some of them are completely stressing!

Auch it shouldnt be too bad hopefully
I'm fine as long as the log question isnt worth a lot of marks, and there isnt a lot of marks for the chain rule;
Hopefully - i tend to get a bit number blind in exams lol smile.gif
Physics the next day sad.gif
Beyond it, and us, shines a greater hope and a brighter future
Can't wait 'til the exams are over!
