What is the difference in difficulty from this and c1? I found c1 rather easy and I've read ahead and done chapter 1 and that seem alright but I'm worried about things like trig and harder integration.

Are there any topics that are really hard?

I got 90 in C1 and 100 in C2, go figure.

Trig and logs are a bit hard but C2 is quite easy tbh
Also differentiation can be a bit fiddly

I got 98 in C1 and 100 in C2, go figure

Aha I'm finding C2 alright, I don't see why people say that C2 is harder!

I found C1 boring but doable. C2 is a bit harder but at the same time more enjoyable. I've also done a bit of C2 integration, it isn't that much harder than C1, it's applying it to find an area under a graph etc

WHAATT!!! most of the C2 topics are hard like trigonometry then C1. I prefer logarithm then trigonometry because it easy to understand.I haven't done integration, so i can't judge it but the rest of the topics are pretty good.

I've noticed that people who are generally better at maths excel in C2 over C1 whereas people who struggle a bit more prefer C1.
Nothing in C2 is particularly hard. I got 95 in C1 and 100 in C2, which I'd put down to having more revision time for C2 and just generally doing more C2 revision as the topics are more interesting. Also, with no calculator in C1, it's easier to make stupid mistakes, I guess. A lot of people I know lost marks in C1 because - in the midst of exam stress - they forgot something easy like the square root of 4, and then panicked because they didn't have a calculator to check with.
As always with maths a-level, do a whole bunch of solomon papers and you'll be fine.

Im not sure why but surprisingly a lot of the people I know have done better in C2 then C1. Don't know why?

C2 isn't that bad to be honest. It could be worse. I just hate anything that has algebra and geometry together.

Does anyone have any revision notes for C2? Starting chapter 10 today and we're almost done so I want to get started on the revision.
