This morning’s lecture covered arrangements for the exam, advice on revision and preparation, as well as a summary of the course topics.
There was also a demonstration of calculators for use in exams (or not); and encouragement to work on the often underrated skill of Reading the Question.
Download these two exams from last year; read the questions; work on solutions; write those out; and bring them to the lecture on Friday.
