    I thought I did ok in this paper (I did paper 21), but I also agree that it was easier than last year's past papers and especially 2014's which was really hard!
    Though I wonder if the grade boundaries will be higher if it's an easier paper.

    Hopefully paper 4 and paper 6 aren't extra hard to make up for it!

    Good luck for Thursday's paper 4 exam everyone. That's the one that really matters.

    how the hell are we supposed to prepare for the exam?!?!?! im freaking out right now!!
    By doing all the practice papers you can get your hands on.
    And once you've done those, do the 3HR and 4HR papers (they're meant to be harder)

    I think you just calculate the equations of the lines, and then write them as inequalities to show the unshaded region.

    Since the gradients and y-intercepts are obvious just from the diagram, you can write the equation of each line in the form y=mx+c and the one at the top is obviously y=8.

    Then once you have all the equations of the lines, you need to change them into inequalities (ie. using 'less than'/'more than' or 'less than or equal to'/'more than or equal to') to show the unshaded region (the ones that are solid lines should be 'or equal to' and the dotted one is not). If it's not immediately obvious which way the inequalities need to go, then you can do a table of values to find it.

    Finally, if you want to check your answers, you could do it the manual way by choosing a point on the grid and seeing if it fits all the inequalities, or you could plot them on your graphical calculator (assuming you do international maths 0607) and see if it matches to what you want.

    you mean past papers right? and are past papers enough during the revision time?

    I mean past papers..... they're the same thing.
    And I guess.... I have no experience - so don't trust me - but everyone in my (set 1) class will revise like that... How else would you revise?

    You could get a exam practice book with every topic and exam style questions for absolutely everything! If you can answer every question you're pretty much ready for the exam

    Does anyone know why the CIE IGCSE maths thread was merged into the Edexcel one?
    It was two separate threads but I guess a moderator has merged them, I think they should be separate since they're different exam boards with different syllabuses, and exams. Not that it really matters now though since paper 6 for CIE is tomorrow and that's the last paper.

    I was confused about this too. :/
    Maybe the moderator got confused thinking it was the same exam? Now what?!
