    Boundaries , I think, will be less than in Jan. More people sitting it as well as it, hopefully, being harder
    I'm so hoping this is true considering I am utterly terrible at Maths and hoping for at least a C!

    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.....
    If you make a triangle (like the speed triangle - speed= distance/time) then the one in the middle is on the top. So for sine, opposite is at the tip of the triangle. This means that opp=sinx * hyp. Hyp=opp/sinx and sinx=opp/hyp

    i don't know but they're not exactly hard to work out... so if they came up, it wouldn't be such a problem.

    Can unconditional probability come up on non calculator?
    Any topic, including all probability topics, can be tested on the non calculator paper as long as the numbers are simple enough to evaluate without a calculator. Any question that can express probabilty as a simple fraction could be on non calculator. Problems given in tricky % or decimals that require decimal multiplication are more likely to be calculator.

    I need an A for this exam and I've realised I do significantly worse in the non-calculator paper than calculator paper. Mainly from making silly mistakes. Are there any sort of tips you could give me please? It will be much appreciated

    I feel so stupid compared to people on here ! I've got a C on EVERY maths paper I've ever done. I NEED this B in my final maths exam ever! Any tips on how to jump from a C to a B ? Useful topics that I'd need to know to solely concentrate on getting a B?

    Is this thread for a retake of the Feb/March exam? Cos I took this exam and I got a C and we were all re-entered to do it again in June, I'm hoping for atleast a B because I'm terrible at Maths

    Are there any good revision sites or youtube videos for maths?

    Same here aaaah! I got a C the first time round, aiming for a B in this exam. I normally do past papers and then focus on the questions I don't understand by using online websites/videos/textbooks to revise the content so I'm focusing more on what I don't know in order to improve

    It's horrible seeing people with A's and A*'s . I really struggle with circle theorems and angles. Going to concentrate on them and revise hard as I way some way off getting a B in the exam earlier this year !
