    Welcome to the Official Edexcel FP2 Exam Thread!

    People are welcome to share exam tips and general information!

    Past Papers:

    You can find exam past papers here (Edexcel website): http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...st-papers.html
    Alternatively, you can find them here (Physics And Maths Tutor): http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...s/fp2-edexcel/

    I would use the latter, everything's in one place; better.

    I need to start FP2 revision, but De Moivre's theorem appears to be a bottomless abyss (been doing it for so long now and want to start the next chapter) =_=

    Chapter 3 is TOO long lmao, not too hard though.
    Transformations can be quite tricky and can catch you out, but other than that I found it quite do-able..

    I'm half-way through TeeEm's booklet, some really really tough questions at the end..

    Haha, isn't it like that with every topic though? You think you're ready and its straightforward, then a certain exam question (usually at the start lmao) catches you off guard

    Yes true to an extent.

    Are you doing STEP?

    I am quite fond of the DE's need to work on loci

    Yes I am! I highly doubt it'll be in any of my offers, maybe Imperials (if I get one ).. But I figured I'd do it anyway

    Yeah its not hard, but it really does suck out your motivation

    I'm going to try it next weekend , hopefully if I cover the whole topic by then from scratch.

    Yes! I already have 3/5 offers and I'm waiting on UCL and Imperial. So I highly doubt it'll be a part of any of my offers (unless Imperial throws in STEP to the offer, given I actually get an offer lmao)
    But I'm willing to do it anyway, because why not

    I assume you are as well?

    Yes although it won't be part of my offer, but I want to do it for the challenge.

    My class has just finished Chapter 3 - Further Complex Numbers. I hate this chapter , especially the last parts on transformations . I seem to be only getting some of the questions right because Ive seen a similar question so i just apply the same method. Any advice

    Thanks

    Just started FP2 and FP3, but I've done C3 and C4 so I'm sort of at the same place as everyone else.

    Looking at the FP2 book, there are 2 chapters at the start that don't seem to contain much, so we'll probably be finished with these next week.
    What would people say is the hardest topic?

    Complex number transformations. Takes a while to get used to imo but practice them enough and they become second nature
