    Edexcel C4 - 24th June 2016 AM

    Last year's thread was up before this one so I thought it was about time to start a thread for those preparing for the C4 exam this summer! I've linked to some resources below, let me know if there are more I should add.

    We haven't even started C4 in class, but I do know some of the content. Integration makes my brain hurt, but I'm sure it'll get easier.

    A lot of the results are found in the formulae sheets, it's just a case of knowing how to apply them, after a bit of practice it becomes more straightforward.

    Is your class leaving C4 until last?

    Don't underestimate FP1, I didn't do enough revision for it last year and panicked in the exam I'm planning on retaking that module this year

    D1 is unusual in that the mark schemes are very specific, they want you to lay out things a certain way when performing the algorithms. It's worth checking all the mark schemes and examiner reports if you can find them for that module.

    I agree with the rest, D2 was quite enjoyable for me last year

    C1 - Lol, I finish in 30 mins
    C2 - Circles are gross, but I still breeze through
    C3 - Can actually GTFO, hate the pesky trig proofs
    C4 - Smexy. Challenging enough but still doable

    FP1 - Nice and easy
    FP2 - A bit more juicy but still manageable if I iron out stupid mistakes
    FP3 - A slight mind**** but I love it really. It's like a sadistic killer that you should hate but actually fall in love with

    S1 - Should be a GCSE module tbh
    S2 - A bit more fun than the previous oneone

    M1 - Standard. Fun because I did Physics before
    M2 - See above but more fun

    D2 - Algorithms are a pain in the ass

    Yeah I agree completely. Although, shouldn't you expect to study yet more algorithms on a data science degree?

    Perfect timing for the thread. Is there any point to resit an AS module if I got over 80% overall?
    In order to get the A*, do you absolutely need to get the 90% average in C3 and C4? Or could it also be a 90% average of the whole A-level?
