    Which maths are you studying, GCSE or A-Level?

    If you are in A-Level then you will probably know the basics(the ones you have mentioned in your post.)

    Well it depends on what stage of your education you're at. If you've never studied trigonometry or calculus, then yes, that's pretty much exactly what you should brush up on.
