    Hey,

    I have a AQA GCSE P2 exam in January [real] and i have been told by someone else who is doing the exam that we are NOT given the formulas.

    However, i think we are under the old specification, and when look at past papers under that, there are formulas given.

    Do you know if we are given the formulas or not?

    Thanks

    They are sometimes on the papers, but not always. Best bet is to remember them, that way you know what to do with them even if you are given them.

    You will be under the old specification, the first exams in the new spec aren't till Jan 2012.

    The new spec doesn't come into place until next year. The majority of formulas are given if not all of them in the papers i've been doing :confused:

    Not for Year 9s doing a 3yr GCSE course (becoming increasingly common)

    My school has already started teaching the new (and still draft) spec to Year 9 students.
