The downloadable powerpoint below, and associated printables, are something I’ve used with my Year 11 students to point out just how many easy marks are available on the P2 papers. This stops me from shouting “You’re making stupid mistakes!” at them, and is a much more constructive way of helping them to see how they can improve their score. Hopefully they will be useful for colleagues who, like me, used the June 2010 paper as a mock before the exam rapidly approaching.
It is slightly disheartening – there are 18 of what I would say are easy marks, basic recall and simple processing. You only need 16 to get a C. Glad we’re not dumbing down…
