Maths Department Psychic Predictions Higher Tier Calculator Paper
Ok, ok, so we're not psychic but here are a few topics that haven't appeared much in the non calculator paper so could well come up in the calculator paper to help your focus your revision.
Product of Prime Factors (LCM and HCF)
Bounds (Greatest value/least value)
Using a calculator to get an answer
Trial and improvement
Plotting a curve
Rules of Indices
Solving equations or inequalities
Forming equations (angles in a triangle/ quadrilateral)
Nth term rule
Volume and surface area
Angles (alternate and corresponding)
Bearings and construction
Circles and parts of circles
Averages (including from a frequency and grouped frequency table)
Thanks for this.
Does he reckon the overall grade boundary will still be reduced if the difficulty of the calculator is moderate? The topics you've put on above aren't that hard but hopefully it's not a shocker like the non-calc.
Well, June 2011 was 81% raw for an A*. Does anybody have a copy of the paper they can send me?
Do lot think it could be Overall 110-120 for an A out of 200 for nov 2011 exam?
Relax you did fine
Yeah there's a pretty good possibility. Try not to listen to the '140-145' grade boundary predictions you hear. i did the june 2011 exam, which was ridiculously hard and everyone was saying '140ish' for an A and it turned out to be 119!
Relax you did fine
I don't think I did fine I think I got around 30/100
I'm worried too, I tried my best on non calculator but don't think I did very well. I tried to show working on questions I couldn't even do so do you guys think I would get marks for that?
They have to give you some marks if you show the correct process, get part of the working correct, or even stating theorems helps. I remember just getting a mark for just putting the area of a triangle formula 1/2abSinC on a past paper.
