## Mathematics Exam Advice

- The first piece of advice is to read questions carefully. Don’t glance at a question and go off writing: take a moment to understand what you have been asked to do.
- Don’t use tippex; instead draw a simple line(s) through work that you think is incorrect.
- For equations, check your solution by substituting your solution into the original equation. If your answer is wrong and you know it is wrong: write that on your script.

If you do have time at the end of the exam, go through each of your answers and ask yourself:

- have I answered the question that
__was asked__? - does my answer make sense?
- check your answer (e.g. differentiate/antidifferentiate an antiderivative/derivative, substitute your solution into equations, check your answer against a rough estimate, or what a picture is telling you, etc)

## Week 12

On Monday, and Wednesday PM, we finished the module by looking at triple integrals.

The Wednesday 09:00 lecture was a tutorial along with most of Wednesday PM and the Thursday class.

## Week 13

Monday is a bank holiday.

In the Wednesday 09:00 lecture we will work on the Summer 2018 Paper and hopefully finish it before the end of the Thursday 10:00 lecture.

If we finish the Summer 2018 paper early (unlikely), any extra time will be dedicated to one-to-one help.

## Exam Papers

These are not always found in your programme selection — most of the time you will have to look here.
