    according to the spec it says :
    Students will not be expected to sketch a curve from its parametric equations.

    Having done all the C4 past papers and solomons some time ago what should I do now just to make sure I'm not rusty?

    I want full UMS in C4, my core modules have been good but M2 could've been better

    What do we need to know by heart from GCSE? Like volume and areas of shapes I have forgotten all of them.

    Cheers!

    I think I've seen like one question EVER, where you had to know the volume of a cone. On all of the other papers I've done they give you the formula for cones

    You can derive spheres/cylinders very easily otherwise

    I'm pretty much in the exact same position as you, in C3 I only dropped marks because I totally mindblanked on the location of a root proof because it was so insignificant to me that I completely forgot about it. The fact I have 5 exams this week also didn't help

    I have attached a question, please let me know the answer. Its a very simple question. How do you know when to use ln method or normal method, where you add power then integrate.

    These are the grade boundaries from 2009-15, along with an average (calculated 2010 onward) at the bottom. I haven't really done many papers yet but you can see they all seem pretty similar.
