    I'm really hoping the last question in paper 2 isn't a vectors question! I tried to do the 2009 paper the other day and the last question is a killer vector question I can do the normal vector stuff (find an angle, show they're perpendicular etc) but not like problem solving ones
    that question was a killer, ngl! helps if you have done physics for that question im kinda hoping we get a comparable question tbh, just so there's something challenging in the paper :P

    I am soooo scared! Maths is my favourite subject and I'm planning on taking adv. higher next year so I really need an A. I got an A in my prelim (just lol) So, I'm hoping I can do the same. I have no idea how to draw graphs of f'(x) though, but it never seems to come up (in the past papers i've done anyway lol.

    It looks okay to me - what did you find tricky?

    Sketch f'(x) the same way you'd sketch any other function.

    I have seen this a few times in older past papers, but don't fret about it, aslong as you can do everything else

    Okay, this is weird, but I only know one person who would like a challenging question & is really good at maths. Name is also Reece. It's either a Reece thing, or you are the same person! Haha

    I'm quite confident about it, but I really hope it's not a repeat of 2010 with a complicated optimisation question. Paper 2 of 2010 was absolutely brutal.

    Would anyone happen to have any good optimisation questions? I only got a C for my prelim but in my house I have done many past papers and get between 60-80% so I am hoping for an overall B
