    The only thing that's 'good' for getting 200/200 in C3 and C4 is the paper you end up sitting. Don't sweat the detail.

    I'm stupid. I'm also telling the truth. You want 200/200? Get full marks on the exam.

    All four of my subjects were with WJEC. :sigh: My school loves that board for some reason.

    I got 295/300 without much work, it's possible. I did FM, though, so that made it very easy.

    To be fair everything else I did at A Level was WJEC. And everything at GCSE except Science, I.T. and Geography I think. I just can't imagine Maths A level without all the super handy Edexcel textbooks..

    Are they really good? What're the further maths ones like?

    I dunno if for general learning they're exactly the best ever but they get the job done very well with regards to teaching the course (all I really needed for FM self-study, though I had a little bit of teaching). I would say the same on the further maths ones; to be fair though they give a few proofs and explain some things properly which is quite nice e.g. for integrating to find arc length and solutions to second order ODEs.

    That is true, so in this case it will help for the end of spectrum questions. But most is all upto practice maybe 4 raw marks in the whole paper will be that advanced to be considered. Do AEA though, it is fun.
