    wow that's tough learning exact values for sin cos and tan etc for foundation

    and even stuff included in C1 and C2 is now being included in GCSE xD
    Yes foundation is a lot harder than it used to be.

    There's becoming less reason for any student to do foundation unless they're grade < E.

    Foundation should be for students to master the basic topics that they will need in life and learn how to tackle a mathematical problem. I'm not sure knowing the exact trig values should be part of this.

    yea... not sure how that would help apart from allowing the derpy exam boards to put questions with angles in the non calc paper

    Lol I'm on IGCSE anyway so they're not relevant to me. But do you know any IGCSE predictions
    I don't know of any.

    I used to be very familiar with CIE IGCSE and could make predictions but not so much anymore.
