The PAT is technically based on roughly C1 and C2 for the maths half (although it varies by exam board and last year a few things that generally aren't covered until C3/C4 came up). You definitely don't need further maths for it. There's a syllabus for the PAT here, it's not very helpful but it does list the topics you should know.

I think the syllabus Lau14 has provided is pretty informative. I did Edexcel mathematics so if you want I could tell you what topics lie within which modules

Sorry for the delay, I had internet connection problems.

Elementary mathematics:
Knowledge of elementary mathematics (That's basically Core 1)
Topics in arithmetic and geometry (Core 1)
Coordinate geometry (Core 2)
Probability (S1)

Algebra:
Properties of polynomials, including the solution of quadratics. Graph sketching and transformations of variables. Inequalities and their solution. Elementary trigonometry including relationships between sin, cos and tan (sum and difference formulae will be stated if required). Arithmetic and geometric progressions and the binomial expansion. (Core 1 and Core 2)
Properties of logarithms and exponentials. (Core2 and Core 3)

Calculus:
Differentiation and integration of polynomials including fractional and negative powers. Differentiation as finding the slope of a curve, and the location of maxima, minima and points of inflection. Integration as the reverse of differentiation and as finding the area under a curve. Simplifying integrals by symmetry arguments. (Last chapter in Core 1 and differentiation and integration topics in Core 2).

Hope this helps
