Maths Physics English and Accounting. All at level 2.

Maths - Merit in most excellence is possible depending on time available
English - Achieved is good
Physics - Merit is possible in all
Accounting - I HATE CORRESPONDENCE. That is all.

My friend is doing Accounting via Video Conference and doesn't like it one bit.

Oh, and all of mine are L2 also.

Thank Goodness, Maths is over. I am feeling pleased with myself - except in algebra. I just suck at algebra I have decided.

The thing that really peeved me off was the final question in the sequences paper (Paraphrased Below):

Wasi does X sit-ups on day one and increases it by 10 each day. Prove that the sum of sit-ups, T, on N, day, can be given by T=5N^2-5N+NX.

Predicted grades:

Algebra - A
Calculus - M
Co-ordinate Geometry - M
Trigonometry - M
Graphing - A

For Algebra, the question about V = 20h, did you get 2 point something?

And for Graphing... in previous years (going by the 2005 exam), it was sufficient to simply draw the graphs to get Achieved. I was told that this now is not the case? Can anyone confirm?

Don't think I did that question. I am unsure about the graphs paper but look HERE.

I drew them very clearly and plotted points very often to make an accurate shape. I guess it'll be a waiting game unless an MT answers me on Studyit :(

I'm very sure I plotted points for x and y intercepts but probably didn't label them. But they wrere clear. Again, waiting game :(.

I agree. I think that the schedules better be easier on us because I think the papers were ALOT harder. BRING ON JANUARY!!

Had English today.
Unfamiliar text and formal writing went well, as well as my visual text and short story essays.
Not too sure about my extended text essay.
Just finished in the three hours!

Studyit forums are useless. It takes them hours to approve posts so we can't even have a semi-live discussion.
