Welcome to XtremePapers Contest 2012!

Thank you!

Now, as most of you know we held a contest last year. This, actually, is a follow-up to that.
Last year, you were required to upload revision related resources and were awarded tickets based on the quantity of uploads followed by a lucky draw at the end of contest.
Congratulations again to all the winners!

The trouble is, last time we weren't able to grab much material.
Most of the submissions were duplicates, content from Wikipedia and/or had copyright issues.
This time though, its a lot simpler (and more juicier!).

The What:
You have a chance to prepare revision notes for XtremePapers but it will pass-through a selection.

The How:
If you think you have the potential and want to help XtremePapers advance knowledge, send me the following via conversation
