    My teacher has given us C1, S1 and C2 papers to do over the holidays but no mark schemes.

    Is there anywhere I can find them online as I would like to find out where I'm going wrong so I know what to revise more

    I care about my A-Levels and want to do well. What would be the point in cheating? So I could get a well done from my teacher? That's not helpful to me

    Perhaps you should email or contact your teacher for the markschemes? If you explain your reasoning, they may give you access to them. Generally though, recent markschemes and papers from the previous year arent widely available on line as they're used for mock exams/PPEs, so I doubt you'll find them easily.

    hmm... answers probably aren't widely available to students? since school might want to use them as mocks... but i guess if you post the papers here it'd be good practise for me and we could compare answers? might have to ask Zacken for Statistics though

    I recognised the paper and as I went through my notes after, it turns out we did it as a mock before in class like a year ago. Therefore, I have a sheet of "worked out solutions" that we went through after the test. Hopefully, I have done better than 19 out of 75 this time Thanks anyway

    That result haunts me to this day. I remember it clearly because it was my first C1 test and as soon as I started getting into it the fire alarm went off
    Anyway, after all the revision I have done hopefully it will be much much better.

    By the way do you think it is worrying that we still have 2 modules left of C2 to finish and a couple of S1??? My teachers are so crap and tried to teach us S1 before C2 and then had to switch when they realised the C2 exam is first.....

    Well we will be going through all the past papers they gave us after the Easter holidays so I guess I'll just wait for that. Thanks anyway

    yup

    so how many is a couple? i mean i've just got 1 topic to finsh in M1 so you're probably behind a bit, but i guess i could teach you whatever C2 you have left? or maybe someone else could?

    Well we have 2 S1 topics left but they're easy and the exam is a while away so that is fine. We completely skipped logarithms for some reason and we haven't done Graphs of Trigonometric functions yet either.

    I'd be happy to teach you logarithms, if you like. Provided you're doing the edexcel exam board that is - otherwise it might be slightly different.

    I have to admit, it's rather strange the way they've decided to teach you in that order...

    Edexcel have released the June 2015 papers and markschemes themselves.

    I have watched videos online and things so I have a basic understanding. And yes, it is strange. When we were doing Geometric series we had to use logarithms and our teacher literally said "I know you haven't learnt this yet so you won't know why we're doing this but just trust me and copy what I do" Hahah The struggles of having 2 different maths teachers

    That's horrid, you should just self-teach everything yourself. Examsolutions.net is a good site for this.

    Great advice! That is just what I am doing right now. I have a PowerPoint of past papers sectioned into topics so I'm doing them and anything I can't do examsolutions clears it all up for me

    Sounds awesome, be sure to come in and ask questions on TSR whenever you need something clearing up.
