    From what I've been told, graphs & differentiation are quite popular maths questions
    (Original post by Username13)
    Which areas of maths should we need to know about?
    Anyone seen any example of maths questions??

    A bit random but would anyone say dropping M1 for FP2 is stupid as I dislike Mechanics?Also pure modules are helpful for someone like me as Im doing Economics and a lot of Further methods are used I believe whereas I would almost never use any M1 methods in econ.

    Unless you're sure that you can do as well, if not better, in FP2 as you could in M1, there is no reason why you can't.

    I've got my Cambridge interview at Churchill on Saturday, and just wondering whether they are more likely to ask questions based on maths I did last year or have done so far this year so I can focus my preparation. Thanks

    Hmm found out that I'm actually predicted A*AA instead of A*A*A because my economics teacher doesn't predict A*s oddly even though I had 80/80 on the 1 paper and 93% average ums, so predicted a*aa in maths,eco and physics). Do you think that's going to have a big impact on offers from unis like bath/bristol?

    Yeah I'm confident in my PS, btw what subjects are you studying and what did you get at AS if you don't mind?

    Make a complaint to your headmaster, get your parents involved or something as you clearly deserve the prediction here. It could potentially affect your UCAS although difficult to say how big the impact but you don't want to be at a potential disadvantage to those predicted A* in the subject with <90%.

    I assume my AS results are much worse than yours.I got A in Economics,B's in Maths,Physics and ICT.Studying the same subject as you

    Hmm I'll speak to my head of sixth form tomorrow morning about it. I heard my economics teacher say that he doesn't predict A*s because he doesn't want to put pressure on students.

    Yeah that happened to me to! Mine just got sent off last Friday, I was told to choose 4 options first,see how they pan out then add my last choice so mine got sent of with 4 choices. So where are you thinking of applying?
