Hey,
I'm not the best at maths but i love it and im predicted an A at GCSE and have chosen it for Alevel. I do know though, that I'm going to have to be ahead of teaching if I want a good grade as I do find it very difficult. I was therefore wondering whether anyone has the syllabus for Edexcel AS Maths or just a list of what I need to know for C1. I have checked the edexcel website, and they don't actually have the syllabus there from what I could see for AS. Thankyou very much.

The exam board, edexcel, is gonna make the papers harder now, so it is a good idea to learn the syllabus.

Rather than reading a bit from syllabi everywhere during the summer, learn some topics, e.g. differientiation, in depth. That's my tips from experience

Right, how do you know this?
The earlier papers are much harder than the 2005/2006 papers.

And surely if they make the papers harder (I approve, if this is the case, although I doubt it) then the grade boundaries will be lower accordingly? It wouldn't be fair if you suddenly had to be better at the material to get the same grade as someone from a previous year.

As for the OP's question about C1, it's just basically revision of GCSE maths with the basics of calculus introduced. If you're interested, you might want to read a bit about it (any A-level text will do, I prefer the older ones), but I wouldn't worry unduly.

If its going to be harder they'll slip in a nasty question they wont just up the level of every question.

Grab the heinemann's C1 book http://www.heinemann.co.uk/secondary...sbn=0435510975

C1 is relatively simple alot of it is higher GCSE stuff.

Aren't Exam papers written about 3 years before they are used anyway?

No. Why the hell would they do that? They would have to keep it secret for longer, and changes to the syllabus would take even longer. I think they spend about 8 months drafting.

I am pretty sure that they do prepare the papers well in advance. At least a year. So that if one years paper leaks they can use the next one they have ready as a reserve. (It is not unknown for a replacement paper to be used -- although I would admit it is unusual).

8 months drafting? I don't think it takes them that long.
