There's one on the AOSB website and then you get to do ANOTHER practise on your own at main board, with all the tutorials - don't get stressed about it! The one you get on main board is usually nails and I found a solution in the last little bit, whilst trying to memorise the scenario. They aren't looking for an answer per se, but your ability to think on your feet and do the maths and answer questions/memory recall under pressure.
I just worked on my SDT and did the one on the website.
How different is the one on the website / practise one's floating around to the ACTUAL one given, also are maps provided for the situations only I've heard you should 'sketch' a map, but I though Plan Ex's usually have a map of a given scenario provided..
..Your advice about working on arithmetic and Winter Aid sounds reasonable if the ones often swapped around aren't actually that tough in comparison (some of which seem hard enough!!!)
Nope just interested to find out how other people on this board are faring with their applications. I've already done my briefing, papers are at Westbury waiting for a date for my main board. But congratulations none the less.
Anyway TheKing, the Plan Ex we were given at the briefing had maps with them. Can't tell you what they will be like at the main board.
