    Zigzag paper? huh? whats that.

    I can't bring myself to revise just feeling to nervous about it all.

    did past papers yesterday for June 11 paper, got spot 163 marks, which was an A* exactly, haha. But I think that was just lucky. Need a B for uni, but would be nice if I could get an A

    What are you revising on the most?
    1.A*.2.A if I do badly and make stupid mistakes, otherwise I'm on target for my much needed A*.
    2. Exam technique- just been doing past papers after doing all the content.

    Hopefully the paper won't have too many complex questions, like the June 2011 surface area formula question (although if something like that came up I'd be able to do it )
    My tip to anyone looking to do some last night revision, then do past papers; two months ago I was scraping an A, and now I'm doing quite well.

    Almost all topics can be tested on either paper because they don't need a calculator or because the numbers they choose are so easy that it is reasonable to expect you to work them out without one.

    A few topics require a calculator

    Trigonometry - SOHCAHTOA, Sine rule, Cosine rule, Area=0.5abSinC
    Quadratic formula
    Trial and Improvement

    A few topics are usually calculator

    Compound interest
    Calculating an estimate for the mean of grouped data
    Area and volume involving pi (circles, segments, cylinders, hemispheres etc) but can be on non-calc if answers are to be left in terms of pi or if it's an A/A* question that would mostly be solved algebraically
    Pythagoras (though could be non-calc if numbers are easy)
    Direct and Inverse proportion (if tested) though could be non-calc if numbers are easy

    The quadratic formula DOESN'T always need a calculator. They may ask you to work out your answer in surd form, or the discriminant (b^2-4ac) might be a cube number, so you will obtain a whole number if you square root it, so practice that without a calculator, because it can come up!

    Again, sectors, segments etc may be asked numerically to really test the mathematical ability of the top A* students.

    On questions where it says 'explain why so an so's predition is wrong' do you basically just work it out and show all your workings? I really don't get how to do the written questions?

    Unless you know them, I would go over them if you are aiming for an A/A* as the last question is normally based on this:

    y=f(x) and about the minimum point and stuffffffff
