    I thino binomeal expansions are as nice as trapeisum rules becsuse in c2 atleast your just subbibg into that (a+b)^n formula right?
    Yup! It's just I don't usually refer to the formula sheet (Because I'm lazy) and I end up making careless mistakes

    Expecting the harder topics to appear in the paper (eg binomial expansions, trigonometry, etc)
    It's really not that difficult.
    possibly if you don't know how to use those identities well

    A few questions:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    What are the most likely/common mark topics to come up this year? logs, geometry, integration etc? Are they going to come up as big mark questions? Will C2 be harder or easier than last year's paper?
    Dunno, everything bruh, everything, there's nto that many topics to cover so cover them all.
    Depends
    Most likely harder due to the turnout of this year's C1 paper
    (Original post by Imjustaloner)
    I think integration is gonna be big...
    really? but it's just free marks
    trapezium rule is can you use your calculator and formula on the formula sheet?
    the other one is can you integrate and sub in x for numbers?

    Depends what overall grade you receive. You need an E or above for the general AS Level to carry it on to A2.

    Speaking of this:

    I genuinely think my C1 exam went pretty bad. This is the annoying part, I revised a LOT. I did a lot of work but the problem with me is: time management.


    From the beginning to about question 7-8 give or take one-two sub-questions, I was pretty confident and happy. After this, especially that easy simultaneous equation question, my brain became cabbage and I was making really stupid errors.


    My point being: If I got like a D (or if a miracle happens, a C) in C1, but hopefully if I do good at C2 and S1 with let's say a B for now (keeping it realistic). Would I round off the year with a C+ or maybe even a B-?

    Cheers.
    i am so gutted too,

    time management was my only issue .

    i made little silly mistakes , if i had time to go over the paper , i am sure i would have noticed them.

    The best thing we can now do is try to get good grades in c2 and double check our answers.

    anyone here doing m1?

    Why?
    1. Because it's in the jurisdiction of Edexcel, the awarding body rather than the Education Secretary.

    2. The grade boundaries will be calculated the way they always have done, fairly using national averages. If everyone does bad, the requirements for grades are lowered to match the statistics rather than what the people want.

    Shape formulae? You mean the volume, surface area and area of solids and 2D shapes?
