    Hey I have a good idea! Why doesn't someone (I will if i need to) Create a Skype Group and everyone taking this exam can join in. This way we can talk to each and other and help each other.
    In fact, I am creating the group right now! Tell me your username for Skype if you are interested in joining!

    P.S. It's created

    We don't need a skype group to do that

    Why don't we just ask questions and answer them?

    Okay can someone quote me and write or copy and paste a list of subjects which will most likely appear in the calculator paper and the non-calculator paper?

    Much thanks

    however, non-calculator is meant to be things like vectors, probability, enlargements, inverse and direct proprtion, angles etc

    Can someone please confirm this for me.

    The transformation: y= f(ax) is a stretch in the x direction parallel to the y axis with scale factor 1\a

    And y = af(x) is a stretch in the y direction parallel to the x axis with scale factor a??? (Not sure about that one......)

    Not sure how you are using 'parallel' here

    y= f(ax) is a stretch in the x direction with scale factor 1\a (multiply x values by 1/a)

    y = af(x) is a stretch in the y direction with scale factor a (multiply y values by a)

    Hey!

    I'm taking the higher paper on Monday 11th June and 14th June and was just wondering what people think may come up the most, and what they're most not looking forward to! I'm also wondering what everyones opinion is on the grade boundaries - like, what will they be? (Although I know you can't tell) but yeah, a guess may be helpful! This is for the Edexcel paper!

    It could be anything we have learnt these past two years... Normally, after the first exam, MathsWatch GCSE give out the list of topics that are most likely to come up in the second exam, because they didn't come up in the first exam. & Grade boundaries could go up or go down, depend how hard the exam is and how people do. They dropped quite a bit for the Nov exam. in June 2012, it was 129 for an A, and in Nov 2012, it was 119, because it was a harder exam. So who knows.

    I'm glad this thread has been made - I wa starting to panic.

    I have one question, and it's about trig. I can remember SOHCAHTOA easily and know how to use it, but theres just one thing I can get my head around - how to you know whether to divide or times? It is x=cos48 x 20 or x=cos48/20? It seems to change alot? Is there a specific way of remembering it?

    I hope that made sense, its the one thing I'm stuck on.....

    When you're finding a side, you would do cos48 x 20, when you find an angle, you would do cos inverse 24/13 for example. hope it helps..

    Depends on the situation?

    Look at the formula, it does not change

    What does the question look like?

    Boundaries , I think, will be less than in Jan. More people sitting it as well as it, hopefully, being harder
