    Please post the hardest C1, C2 or FP1 questions you have come across in your revision. I want to see what questions I cannot do. My exam board is Edexcel but any question from any exam board is fine. I'll try to answer it myself and also help anyone else who is having difficulties. I look forward to tackling your questions.

    The best way to do this is to use the gold papers, where the statistically hardest questions which have ever turned up are all amalgamated into a paper for you to do: http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...-maths-papers/ under "Edexcel Gold Silver Bronze papers". I found them really handy and they're extremely useful.

    Our teacher gave us that exact paper for the last mock we did! I couldn't do that question, but after some clarification, its actually pretty easy. Thanks for sharing, refreshes the memory.

    Yeah!! Thats a really good resource. The problem is i've done all the other eddy past papers so those questions will just come up again in gold and silver.

    Theres also a Delphis Paper and Zig Zag Paper which Im saving for wednesday so i dont run out of material for practice. Recommend those.

    C2, IYGB, PAPERS U, V, W, X, Y, Z are hard but more realistic

    have fun

    With logarithms you need to know 4 things.
    1) definition - what it actually means to when you write log(basex) of y
    2)the addition rule
    3)the subtraction rule
    4)the power rule

    If you know those 4 things you should be fine.
