Here's a good predicted paper : http://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/resources/june2016p2.pdf

There will be at least 1 trigonometry question. Also prepare for bounds, 3D shapes, cumulative frequency/histograms/stratified sample, reverse percentages, quadratic formula, simultaneous equations, similar shapes.
3. Pythagoras + Trigonometry, Quadratic equations, simultaneous equations, conversions, Nth term, Graphs etc.

Anyone know any other topic? I'm aiming for 80 on this paper xD
4. Does anyone know any good websites with past papers for calculator paper?
Or, do any of you know the best way to prepare?

Great
14. histograms, quadratic simultaneous equations, sine and cosine, trigonometry + trigonometric graphs, fx graphs, algebraic fractions, rearranging formulae

my predictions so far
