    Also, as this paper was easier than last years do you think grade boundaries will be considerably higher?

    I'm aiming for an A* which was around 70% in last years right?

    last year it was 112/175 about 60%, it shouldn't be too different this year

    what did you get for the factorising question that has 2y* and y* in it

    i got y=12x+24, but i wasn't sure on it, so you were probably right!

    I'm guessing we're going to get more differentiation, quadratic sequences, algebraic manipulation, the trigonometric identities

    How about the matrices one? I think I got x=4 and the y that went with it as well as x=6 y=-1/2 ?

    My teacher went through the paper afterwards and he predicts...
    • Limiting factors
    • Matrix transformations (the unit square)
    • Stationary points + their nature
    • Full equation of a tangent/perpendicular bisector
    • Continuous functions (on graphs and finding the limits)
    • Range of equations
    • Simultaneous equations
    • Sine Rule
    • Cosine Rule
    • 3D Trigonometry
    • Trig Identities


    Hope this helps everyone
