    I suspect that C4 will be very challenging this year, moreso than last year's paper so best of luck to everyone.
    Based on what?

    Based on changes in education and also how much of a jump I felt last year's paper was in comparison to all of the other mocks.

    Doesn't matter as UMS will make it easier to get full marks as a silly error will be forgiven

    But... Why?
    And how far have you got with M2? we have only one chapter left
    I do M2 and have finished M2, however I suck at mechanics simply because I dont do near enough practise for it. I got 100ums in c1 & c2 last year with 78 in M1.
    Ive understoor all of the M2 content and actually found it interesting, I am not prepared for the mock we have when we come back thoguh as I simply have never bothered to open my M2 book at home and practise!

    ( I did D1 as an extra module last year and got 98ums)

    I got 78 ums in M1 as well! its funny cause i kept getting 100s whilst doing the past papers and yet i got screwed over by that **** exam.
    I think generally that M2 is easier than m1 in the sense that there's not as much learning involved as in m1 cause most of it is assumed knowledge

    Any tips for D1?
    Most people in my school who did D1 in AS further Maths found it really boring and they ended up with low marks. U really enjoy it so I'm hoping to get goo UMS

    Just take your time with it, D1 is just like C1, with just more room to make mistakes. It is pretty boring as soon as you have solidified the knowledge however don't be complacent. Do all the papers a UMS is a UMS irrespective of the module. By the time you do like 5 papers you should find it repetitive, from there just aim to get 100% in everyone you do. I did a couple D1 solomon papers but only like 2/3. I also used the CGP book to learn and revise D1 which I didnt do for any other module because my heinmann book was absolutely ****

    Hahaha seriously?
    I swear we are twins separated at birth, same GCSEs, same career prospect, same M1 score, I'm sure there are even more correlations lol

    You luckily beat me at AS though

    What you really need in D1 is a stroppy teacher. Applying the algorithms in a casual manner will get you low marks. As a teacher, D1 is the only module where I've ever felt that I should mark all practice papers, since it is the only way to make sure that the algorithms are being applied properly.

    To do well in Mechanics modules, you must make sure that you thoroughly understand all of the principles. Someone on the SR today said that M1 was about memorising. It really isn't!. Questions will be asked that are not just repeats of questions that you've seen before (though looking at questions from the early 2000s won'tdo you any harm if you are on Edexcel - they've been coming round again recently).

    How come we have a C3 + C4 thread but no Edexcel M1 thread?
    I know the Mega A level Maths thread can fill that void, but was just curious.

    Yeah I am aware of that. If i went just by memorising i am pretty sure i would have scored even less than i did. I am lucky that my mechanics teacher taught me pretty decently

    Agreed, is the only reason why I did well on last years paper. Conversely though, I would say that C1 and C2 is much more 'recall' based - I can imagine someone being able to do well without having much 'understanding'. However, this approach would, in my opinion, come back to bite you in the arse for A2
