In this video Mr Hegarty deals with the conversions that are often fundamental to compound measures questions. You are no longer expected to memorise metric to imperial conversions, as described in this video (at 5:40), as they will provide these conversions if they are part of a question. However you might still have to perform the calculation so watch this video anyway, there's plenty of other essential information here to make it worthwhile.
