2. Hey I have a good idea! Why doesn't someone (I will if i need to) Create a Skype Group and everyone taking this exam can join in. This way we can talk to each and other and help each other.

P.S. It's created
3. Tell me if you guys want to join it - we only have a week left! We can discuss and help each other out

We don't need a skype group to do that

5. Okay can someone quote me and write or copy and paste a list of subjects which will most likely appear in the calculator paper and the non-calculator paper?

Much thanks
6. you can be tested on anything in the spec, as Mr M rightly says
7. however, non-calculator is meant to be things like vectors, probability, enlargements, inverse and direct proprtion, angles etc
8. pythagoras, cumulative frequency, box plots(whiskers)
9. circle theorm and a bunch of other weird but easy things thrown in like for exmaple: ingredients for making things or a funny related example with distance travelled involving measures...

Yes, I have for you.
Good luck.
Could you also send these to me please?
11. Can someone please confirm this for me.

The transformation: y= f(ax) is a stretch in the x direction parallel to the y axis with scale factor 1\a

And y = af(x) is a stretch in the y direction parallel to the x axis with scale factor a??? (Not sure about that one......)

Not sure how you are using 'parallel' here

y= f(ax) is a stretch in the x direction with scale factor 1\a (multiply x values by 1/a)

y = af(x) is a stretch in the y direction with scale factor a (multiply y values by a)

Ok thanks That clears things up!
14. Hey!

I'm taking the higher paper on Monday 11th June and 14th June and was just wondering what people think may come up the most, and what they're most not looking forward to! I'm also wondering what everyones opinion is on the grade boundaries - like, what will they be? (Although I know you can't tell) but yeah, a guess may be helpful! This is for the Edexcel paper!
15. It could be anything we have learnt these past two years... Normally, after the first exam, MathsWatch GCSE give out the list of topics that are most likely to come up in the second exam, because they didn't come up in the first exam. & Grade boundaries could go up or go down, depend how hard the exam is and how people do. They dropped quite a bit for the Nov exam. in June 2012, it was 129 for an A, and in Nov 2012, it was 119, because it was a harder exam. So who knows.

I have one question, and it's about trig. I can remember SOHCAHTOA easily and know how to use it, but theres just one thing I can get my head around - how to you know whether to divide or times? It is x=cos48 x 20 or x=cos48/20? It seems to change alot? Is there a specific way of remembering it?

I hope that made sense, its the one thing I'm stuck on.....
17. When you're finding a side, you would do cos48 x 20, when you find an angle, you would do cos inverse 24/13 for example. hope it helps..
18. Is this thread for Edexcel?

Depends on the situation?

Look at the formula, it does not change

What does the question look like?

Boundaries , I think, will be less than in Jan. More people sitting it as well as it, hopefully, being harder
