    I have a feeling circle theorems, vectors, and algebraic fractions might appear. What are your thoughts on what you think will turn up for the non-calculator paper on may 26th?

    Are we talking about AQA GCSE non-calc?
    But tbh I don't think you should bother predicting for maths - just practice everything you need so that you can apply these techniques to the 'worded' questions that may come up

    IGCSE is 'harder' as it contains mostly higher level content and includes topics usually taught at A-level as opposed to GCSE, topics such as differentiation and calculus, etc. However, if you're doing GCSE further maths you may be familiar with some of these topics.

    However, some people may say theyl find it easier only because it tends to be less wordy questions so the questions are easily understandable you just need to understand harder topics. THIS IS WHAT MAKES ME LOVE MY EXAM. I wouldn't want to do the others because eventhough the content maybe harder the exam is much better imo.

    I agree with you on the wordy questions I HATE THEM and they come up frequently on GCSE i prefer things like a simultaneous equation or quadratic equation where there is just a set way you do it and you just do it. Not none of this hannah sweet ********
