    ok take a look at this thread from a few days ago:

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/t119056.html

    basically it could be anything on your syllabus except it's less likely to be something that already came up in the non-calc exam.

    :eek: There were loads of graphs on the other paper!! Did you not see that nasty cosine sine graph question? I doubt there'll be more graphs.

    :rolleyes: I meant graphs for us to draw (median, upper and lower quartile etc.). I didnt actually understand the sine graph thing until the exam when Iworked it out.

    I bet anything that there will be a 'complete the trial and error table' type question.

    That said, there is no way to tell what will be on - all of the topics can appear on every paper (or so I believe).
