Jk Nah but seriously i doubt its a big deal. I didnt notice it until my friend told me to do it as we were handing it up!
Consdiering the vigilators dont even mention it i doubt its that important ( our one told us all not to write on the log tables but that was it!
Yeh ours didn't even mention it.
It's my own stupid fault though.
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
Pretty sure it's 20
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.
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.
He just said he used to correct exams and it's not a problem. Deep breaths
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.
My examinar reminded us but he jst said it was to make sure that the calculater wasnt holding any info and answers so i wouldnt worry urself..
I think in theory the superintendent checks that the model matches your calculator as they collect your paper.
yeah, they don't check. the whole calculator thing is stupid.
Yes, as BarnHall Bull said,
And it's in the Candidate Information Booklet:
"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."
Of course it won't make a difference! Jebus I know it's the leaving but the things some people get panic attacks over!
Maybe they'll think you didn't use one and that your a genius!! A1 for you dude!
A candidate who leaves the examination hall before the expiration of any
surprised they don't have a guy in the car park with a megaphone 'come out with your hands up'
