Paper 1 wont count for nothing if you do badly on Paper 2.
To be an A grade student - you have to do well (roughly over 65 marks) on both papers each.
To be an A* grade student, you have to have 2 excellent papers.
There is no two ways about it.
You all should also have the Predicted Paper Pack from Maths Genie (handed out in class on Thursday). Do these under exam conditions and check your solutions on Maths Genie.
Go over your Calculator Papers from previous years (2010-2015). You should all have these in your revision folders. Look over any questions that troubled you then. Redo those question under timed condition.
I would personally recommend completing all of November 2013 Higher Paper 2 under timed conditions too.
Anything you put into your calculator - make sure you write it down first on your paper !
Brush up on Key Calculator Topics (these are from top of my head, I'll give you a proper list soon):
- Sine Rule, Cosine Rule, Area of Triangle
- Compound Interest
- Estimating mean from a table
