    I'm feeling really good about this exam. Been through every question on all the past papers. How do you think it will compare to last year?

    ahh that's so good!!

    Umm dont think it will be to taxing but you never know this is the last year of this spec so they might go out with a bang!
    That's exactly how I feel as this is the last year they may use a really messed up question. Tbh I did the Hannah's sweets, it wasn't too bad. I feel edexcel may put in a really hard question! I am so stressed

    MY PREDICTIONS, having sat the paper last summer- C, November B and going for an A/A* this summer (self taught) to allow me to go onto the A level maths courses at college as needed for economics degree, i have a fairly good idea...

    PREDICTIONS for non calc-

    Vectors- this is almost a give, they didn't place much emphasis on these last summer. Be prepared to prove why it is a straight line etc.
    Equations of lines- I would predict a question on perpendicular lines may come up as a lot of emphasis on parallel lines has happened in the past.
    HARD VOLUME QUESTIONS- very likely, june 2015 had a very hard one, learn the formulas which are not given and practice giving answer in terms or pi.
    PROOF- perhaps this year just proving why 2 numbers are multiples etc.
    Histograms
    Cumulative frequency- every year
    SIMILTANEOUS EQUATIONS- i predict a question with a quadratic equation being formed. Maths genie covers these well.
    Circle Theorems- 99% likely.
    Algebraic fractions- very likely
    Transformations of graphs- i reckon sin and cos graphs this year.

    Of course all the other stuff may come up e.g questionnaire, loci, speed etc.
    i dont think we will get a Hannah's sweets one or drawing a circle.

    Achieve maths on youtube covers A/A* topics and goes though past papers. Maths Genie website has loads of practice questions and past papers with solutions and they have predicted papers.

    How do people revise? Because I've just been doing past papers in class (cause we're forced lol) but I can't seem to revise at home but that's probably because I don't know what to revise. It's probably too late now though cause the exams tomorrow

    examsolutions.net is useful for going over any topics you're unsure on.
