We're approaching Christmas now and I'm trying to learn ahead in C4 as FP2 requires some knowledge from C4. What C4 content is in FP2? If somebody could tell me, that would be much appreciated! 😁

Chapters 1, 4 and 6. Pretty much half of C4.

EDIT: You might need to learn chapter 2 before doing chapter 4.

Integration
Differentiation
Binomial Expansion
Partial Fractions
Parametric (not sure here)

Not Vectors (of Edexcel at least)

A lot of it. Topics in C4 that took up an entire chapter are taken for granted in FP2 - and in FP2 the exam questions will just assume you know it.

All of it apart from vectors maybe. I did FP2 without C4 vectors and then came back to finish it before I started FP3

Partial fractions, parametric systems, integration, related rates and differentiation is pretty much needed for everything.

The binomial expansion is needed for complex numbers (but you could arguably get away with C2 knowledge for the moment) and also as an intro to Maclaurin and Taylor series.

Vectors is the only exception I can think of.

#### Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (674)
