1. Anyone got any ideas?
2. I think questions on each topic will come up and they'll get progressively harder so.. know it all (and practice difficult questions on each topic) and voila.

why harder

why harder
Oops, that was slightly ambiguous. The papers seem to get harder every year, but I meant that it gets harder from Q1 to Q8 or 11 or however many they want

Useless I know but I don't think anyone would know what's going to come up on the paper.

how do they calculate the ums
6. Last question will probably be a inequalities question, so ALWAYS DRAW A DIAGRAM

This bit is C2 Edexcel, but C1 AQA so may be useful to you or may not be.

They have a habit of making hard circle questions, so usually the best way to solve them is draw a diagram and see where you can fit a right angle triangle.

100% doubt it

They take into account how difficult everyone found it, looking at the raw marks, and scale it on that.

100% doubt it
Why so? Almost all the past papers have the last question as an inequality

what? no c1 papers have an inequality last...
12. Maybe I should specify exam board I meant Edexcel.
13. The entire paper will be maths. I can guarantee it.

15. I'd say they will test the points they've listed on the C1 specification. 100%.

I always make that mistake.

Circles are in C2 not C1 with Edexcel

This very paper will definitely contain words. Nobody knows which ones, but I can guarantee the paper will have them...
20. this paper should surely be easier as last year was hard
