      Thank you for the suggestion Amin – I’ll forward your thoughts to John who teaches F3. Maybe he’ll want to cover P2 as well. I’ll put it to him and, if his reply is printable, I’ll post it on the site :-)

    Goodness me… this tutor is so funny! Classic school master irony… I’ve already completed my studies for F7 but that was two years ago and it is great to be able to go back over that which was learnt back then
