    If you are struggling with any of the past paper questions visit this site examsolutions.co.uk and you can watch tutorials on how to do each C1 past paper question. Better than a teacher!

    Has anyone found any questions (or even whole papers) particularly hard?

    I'm sitting it for the first time, but in my A2 year - so haven't done any revision as I'm concentrating on C3, C4 and M1 (I want an A*, and I really struggle with M1 - straight after C1!).

    So was just wondering if there are any really hard questions I could do just to make sure I'm ready.

    The June 11 paper I did that last year and got 80 did that again yesterday and got 86... while in the others I've gotten at least 90+

    it means b^2 - 4ac < 0

    So the discriminant is less the 0, so from there you go on and solve

    As long as you have done all the past papers and have learnt from the mistakes you have made, then you should be able to get around 70/75 easily, right??

    Also, time does not seem to be an issue as I seemed to finish within 45 mins at the most when doing the past papers?

    And are Solomon papers that important?

    I'm doing it first time on Wednesday

    Good luck everyone!

    Btw, there was this question which I struggled with:

    Given that y=2^x find expressions in terms of y for:

    (a) (i) y=2^{x+2}
    (ii) y=2^{3-x}

    It's from a solomon paper
