    It seems more people found our c3 paper harder than last year's one according to my poll, so I guess lower grade boundaries are to be expected compared to last year maybe :^)

    "Someone posted the paper" means someone posted the paper i.e. the thing with the questions and number of marks for each question on it.

    I just did the c4 paper from 2015, there were so many 'extra' bits that I knew how to do but they just take timeee and aren't actually worth that many marks! It took me like 2 and a half hours to finish I get 20 minutes extra time, but I'm worried I'm going to run out of time in the exam next week any tips?

    If I worked out the last question by the normal method of working out the inverse of the original function and then got the correct answer , will i get both marks?

    No you will get 1/2 (for having the correct value of 1/9) since the question stated "hence state" meaning you had to use a previous answer

    Could be worse, could be sitting STEP I on the 14th, STEP II on the 16th and then only sitting C4 on the 17th.

    I just attempted the C4 paper from last year.. Couldn't answer half the questions or it took me 30 mins to answer the hard 3/4 mark questions 😭 I'm hoping for a nicer C4 paper this year.. Do you think it's a good idea to try questions from other exam boards?

    Possibly edexcel as I think WJEC are doing more "problem solving" questions similar to the ones you find on edexcel papers

    Go through the content and make sure you understand every last detail.
    But tbh if you're consistently getting the grade you want you're fine.

    Hi, just checked the posted mark scheme. If i got 1/y^3 without the -1 numerator, how many marks would i lose? 2 or 1?

    You probably get 1 mark for working out that y^3 was the denominator, and another mark for the correct answer
