    Assuming you're talking about the AQA Level 2 Certificate, yes. There's one calc and one non-calc. If I remember correctly, the calculator paper has more weighting. I think it might have been 105 marks on the calculator paper and 70 on the non-calc?

    Practice is absolutely key. There are tons of worksheets out there for Maths, which can be found from a simple google search! They are absolutely invaluable as you can familiarise yourself with the method.

    Further Maths
    English Literature
    English Language
    Biology

    HI Fatima! I do further maths. I haven't heard of the 105 paper- so I must be on a different exam board (CCEA!) A lot of FM is like physics (forces and stuff), I feel as if a big portion of it doesn't feel like proper maths(if you know what I mean?).

    To revise I use a mini whiteboard and I just do practice questions from my textbook (It is good if the answers are at the back, if they aren't you might be able to find them on the internet). And if you do not understand a question ask your teacher or your friend (or you can probably ask on here)

    I really enjoy FM, it is challenging but that is what makes it fun!
