You can download the grid and add to it using the information in your text book : ) This kind of revison is REALLY IMPORTANT If it makes you think it is worth doing!
Lesson 2 – it was the mock exam – it was this one Jan 2010 If you missed the lesson – have a go at it yourself (under timed conditions). Here is the mark scheme – Mark scheme Jan 2010 and here is the examiner’s report examiners report Jan 2010. The best possible preparation for any exam is to do a past paper – look at what the examiners expected in the answer and then MOST IMPORTANTLY look at other students answers and the comments made by the examiner – this is what you will find in the examiners report!!
