You could look through the past papers and discover them for yourself.
5. I haven't finished the course yet, but this guide looks pretty good:

Thank you, that is REALLY helpful, but I was kind of wondering if anyone knew any generic topics which usually appears on the exam?!
Can anyone help?
7. These are the topics which - after a year of studying this FSMQ - I have noticed come up in most if not every past paper:

-Integration and areas between curves
-Differentiation
-Geometry and differentiation (normals, tangents to curve etc.)
-Regular geometry (circles especially, like geometry)
-Kinematics with calculus
-Binomial distribution and application to probability
-Inequalities on a graph and linear programming
-Simueltaneous equations
-3D trigonometry
-Trigometric equations

Hope this could help.

In terms of IGCSE Mathematics, I got an A*. In Additional Mathematics I am predicted, and have been getting, an A. To be honest, the real goal is to get full marks in an exam, as that is what really differentiates( excuse the pun) top students apart.

Wow You're spending so long on AddMaths! I only just did my Maths IGCSE (in January) and we're now covering all of AddMaths - I guess it's IGCSE so a bit harder though...

As an aside, I get my result tomorrow...
