I know you get all paranoid and scared but after going through a hundred papers they really won't be looking for the calculator model. Deep breath and calm

I thought the max you could go in late was 30 minutes though!?


Pretty sure it's 20

Sure, if you write it on your paper 2 they'll know anyway. Don't worry about it.


Good point. Both papers are marked by the same person so you'll be fine.
Besides I'm pretty sure the calculator type is jut required for if they suspected you were cheating and wanted to look deeper into it.

So does the same examiner correct both of our papers then?


Maths paper 1 and 2 are marked by different examiners.

The marks are submitted separately, and they only get added by the computer that spits out your grade.

In English and Irish the same examiner marks both papers.

But I wouldn't worry about forgetting to write your calculator model. I used to correct LC maths and it was never a big deal unless something strange was going on.

So this notion that if you are close to a pass the examiner will go back over your paper to try and give you an extra mark or two is fairytale stuff as far as maths is concerned. A student could get 24% on paper 1 and 50% on paper 2 giving them an average mark of 37%, 1% off the pass mark in maths which is 38% according to john brennan of countdown to 906. But neither examiner would doublecheck your paper because the paper 2 guy would think you had passed no prob and the paper 1 guy would say there's no point looking back over a 24% paper.

I thought that too, but sure couldn't you just bring in a super-calculator and still write down the model of a normal calculator?

I think in theory the superintendent checks that the model matches your calculator as they collect your paper.

My examiner won't let us take home the paper if we leave early.
Is she allowed do that?


Yes, as BarnHall Bull said,

Not only is she allowed, she is required to take the paper if you're leaving early....




And it's in the Candidate Information Booklet:
http://www.examinations.ie/candidates/LC_Candidate_EV_2010.pdf
"59. A candidate who leaves the examination hall before the expiration of any
period of examination must surrender his/her examination paper and answer
book to the Superintendent."
