    Gutted! Well, at least u get referred to as gentlemen which is better than the terms of abuse we're subjected to.... as long as the calculator's as easy as the non-calculator you'll be fine... tho i'm doubting it will be.. No pressure at my school cos most of set 1 will be expecting Bs anyway (not that there's anything wrong with that before a get attacked by someone accusing me of being a snob)

    lol my moms set me a maths condition that is soo stupid its untrue. coz i didnt want to take maths next yr, she said

    (Original post by My Mom,lol)
    Martin, if you get A* in maths, you havent got to do it next yr, but if you don't you have got to do it
    but the funny thing is coz of the amount of peoplt that do get A*'s at our school, our school pref want you to have A* at maths to do it next yr, so its a win win, if i get A* aint gotta do it, if i don't, i can't do it

    Yeah, I agree. Maths in school is just about memorising stuff and bookwork- you don't need understanding and imagination to do well. The maths challenges are way better cos they at least require you to show some initiative...mind you, I'm not complaining cos at least it makes the exams easier!

    I'm worried cos I found the non-calc (higher) pretty easy and now im scared that theyre gonna make this one hard to make up for it! Haven't done any revision since before the last one. Does anyone know if we have to know proofs for circle theorems? Also a list of things that didn't come up in the last wud b useful as theyre more likely to be in it...arent they?? well there wasnt any LCM and HCF for a start bt thats all i can rememba

    Yeah, non-calc was easy so I feel the same way... too busy with science to bother with maths tho....no percentages, trial and improvement, conversions, transformations and graphs of functions, sine and cosine rules, vectors, histograms, correlation, simultaneous equations, direct and inverse proportion, let me know if u think of anything else!

    Edit: Just realised I did OCR not Edexcel, oh well!

    I hate the calculator paper because one tiny little mistake with le calculator and you could get the whole friggin answer wrong. Also, there tends to be these nasty hard questions at the end which half the population can't do but are worth 6 marks or something equally ridiculous.
