    When studying for D1, I knew that the course content had changed after the June 2008 papers so that only papers with the exact same content were the Jan 2009 and June 2009.

    Is this the same for FP1?

    Any help would be extremely appreciated

    Yeah FP1 has been changed, matrices has been added and first/second order differentiation, polar coordinates have been removed (the main changes). Also all the content is on a level no harder than C2 as it's now designed to be taken as an AS module.

    Yes. They moved around some topics, such as matrices.

    Thanks. So that means that the Jan 2009 and June 2009 past papers will be the same content as I am currently studying for?
