Can you write 0.6 instead of 3/5 for the limiting sequence question?
Of course. They're the exact same thing.

does any have a topic list for what will be in the non calc paper becuase im planning to just revise that material for monday and then calculator topics from after the non calc paper to friday?
Tbh there isn't that much topic material in further maths, there's just a lot of depth, so there'll probably be a bit of everything on each. I can't think of anything that was missing on the non calc...

I think it'll be a bit of everything like the non calc

Btw the spec off the aqa website is useful!!!
4. Hey , i have just done my maths exam and i just thought i'd share the answers i got before i forget them!
Area of triangle : 15
Line of symmetry : x=2
Solutions : -0.8 , 4.8
Range : -3 is less than or equal to f(x) and 6 is greater than or equal to f(x)
Angle x = 37.5
The last question angles : 60, 120, 240 , 300
I just realised i can't remember anymore answers which is annoying!!
I think for the matrices one i got the single transformation was an enlargement by scale factor -3
I got x= 5 for one question and x= 6.25 for another and the length of CD was 32 and i got x/y for the volume question was 12.
Correct me if im wrong guys

Well an A* is around 117 so if you think you got 128 there's a good chance you got an A*. Did you miss out many questions?
19. I did NO revision whatsoever for further maths, apart from one revision session last November lol, because our teachers left it down to us, we had to teach ourselves everything and I couldn't really be bothered I would've rather have concentrated on my other exams. Even though I love the subject, I just went into the exam pretty much half blind, but It's okay to be honest because a lot of the content is just an extension from GCSE so it was quite easy to figure some of it out, however I'm only expecting a B or an A at most lol.

Yes. Over the two papers i missed about 10 questions max
