Please could you advise me on how to approach the P4 Question? I want to know if it is strategically wise to start with Q1, or to finish with the optional questions; or better still finish with one question in section B, then to Q1, and back to last in section B.

There is no best answer – everyone prefers to do things different ways.
For myself, I think it is best to start with question 1.
What is most important, whichever question you start with, is to allocate your time both between questions and between each part of a question.
You should allow 1.8 minutes per mark. So if one part of one question is 10 marks, then allow 18 minutes. If another part is only 5 marks, then allow 9 minutes, and so on.
You will not finish every part within the time, but in order to pass it is better to have answered something for every part of every question (even if none of the parts are completely finished) than to have finished some parts but have left other questions with no answer at all.
