    I got a minimum of 86, according to the unofficial mark scheme and the solutions that were uploaded. I tend to do better on the calculator papers, so I hope I can do better. Apparently, it is going to be harder, but that is only an assumption and they can't give you anything that's not on the spec, so hopefully it goes well. Good Luck!
    Oh that is really good, i got around 78 marks but for me, personally, i do better on the calculator too, LOL Calculator is the maths best friend

    Good luck with your too

    I'm sure you can get an A*, you'd probably need 79/80 for both papers

    np most of the topics are easy on their own its just when they start combining two different topics alongside making the question Wordy then that's when it just goes downhill

    I was thinking the same a couple of months ago, in fact I was at a grade D/E at the beginning of this year, but I just kept doing past papers and watched loads of YouTube videos and here I am, you can do it too, it's not impossible, just never give up, at first I thought it was impossible as well, but I just kept doing it regardless.

    Things like Histograms and Cumulative frequency and polygons. Not all of them but some sort of graph because the non calc paper was shockingly lacking in that area!

    Yes so true, Thanks! Also circle theorems came on the Non-Calc, do you think it's going to come on the Calc one?
