I am really confused about the new edexcel system that has been put in place, anyone doing Higher Tier in June 2014 can you explain?


We have been told there are four modules; Methods 1, Methods 2, Applications 1, Applications 2......

if this is right does any one know what will come up in each???

Thank you! x

Do you know your course code? I've looked up both of Edexcel's GCSE Maths courses but neither of them appear to have four distinct modules.

I wasn't aware of its existence! I only saw Mathematics A and B. I've never heard of "Linked Pair" and the spec doesn't seem to be publicly available. What is it? Is it 2 GCSEs?

Aw bless. Basically everyone in my class is doing higher tier as for some weird reason it's easier getting a 'C' grade on there

what did you guys get for the vector question? I said something like (m-n) and 1/2(m-n) which means that they are scalar multiples and therefore parallel.
