Very good advice for applied maths exam is to make sure you write down the equations of motion/force in the various questions correctly e.g. in collisions, get the PCM and NEL right (in the log book also), in the kinematics get the equations of motion right (in the log book too) as they are worth a good chunk of the marks - the manipulation of equations to get the final results, while it may take a lot of time & effort, is generally not worth a lot of the marks overall and people invariable get bogged down, even though they may have just made a small arithmetical slip or blunder in a formula. Take some time to pick out your best question and then attempt this first. Definitely move on your next best question after 25 minutes have elapsed, irrespective of how far you have got with it. The 2.5 hours goes very fast and 6 questions is a fair amount of work to do. Q10 (a) may well be the best question to start with if you can integrate, as it is varies little from year to year, also Q10(b) usually is very predictable involving variable forces, acceleration, velocity, displacement etc. I have a feeling that a study of hydrostatics could pay dividends if people took the time to look at it, as there is not a massive amount of material to cover. Hope this info helps someone out there.
