    Pretty much the same topics that were on the June papers

    Nobody does, they are not set until after the papers are marked. I'm expecting the paper to be a bit more challenging and the boundaries to be slightly lower than summer - but that is just a complete guess.

    the grade boundaries vary depending on how the students perform. If we all do amazing then they go up. But A* is always around 83%

    Topics you don't need a calculator for i.e. NOT trial and improvement or trigonometry etc.

    No, in the past they did share some questions especially the old Unit 3 papers with the old linear papers. Some modular and linear papers were scheduled to take place at the same time so it didn't matter that there was overlap. Now it's possible to take linear and modular exams with the same examiner in the same exam season and there are no common questions.

    My teacher said that the topics that normally tend to come up on the non calculator paper are:

    Long Multiplication
    Fractions (in some way)
    Probability (whether that would be tree diagrams or simple probability - I don't know.)
    Simultaneous Equations
    Graphs
    Linear equations
    Factorising Linear and Quadratic
    Expanding Linear and Quadratic
    Simplifying
    Solving simultaneous using graphs.
    Algebra manipulation
    Circle Theorems

    Calculator:

    Pythagoras
    Trigonomentry
    Trial and improvement
    Quadratic Equation
    Drawing Quadratic Graphs
    Finding the value of x when y=0
    Standard Form
    Index Notation
    Exchange Rate
    Angles
    Averages
    Total Surface Area/Volume
    3D Coordinates (Maybe)
    Curves
    Vectors (Can come up on either paper or even BOTH)


    That's all the topics that my teacher told me that will most probably come up.

    Hey guys,

    I'm also taking this Maths exam too. I really really want an A*. Any predictions as to what may come up? Also, what the grade boundaries are? How hard do you think the exam will be?
    (I'd greatly appreciate it if you guys could send a list of topics which are likely to come up). Thank you, and good luck to you all. Hope you all succeed!

    The one I sat in june was harsh marking and a harder test then the previous year, 52/200 for c 90/200 for ab 128/200 for an A and 168/200+ for A* I believe, I think they will be lower this time but the paper may be a little harder.

    Hopefully, it's not that hard. I really want to do well! Last year's November 2011 paper was very unpredictable towards the end

    I sat my early entry in the summer and got a B, does anyone have any advice as for what to revise to get 20 marks more? I mainly fell down on the latter half of each paper.
