# EDEXCEL Non calculator Maths topics Watch

1. Does anybody have a topic list a prediction of things that will be on paper 1?
2. A million things could come up on the exam (since there are usually about 22-27 questions on each exam): but my general predictions are:

About 15 marks on expanding brackets, simplifying, and algebraic fractions. (These come up every year).
A question on cumulative frequency/box plots (these come up almost every year).
A question on some kind of proof (either algebraically or through circle theorems - probably the last question.)
Completing the square.
Tree diagrams where one event is affected by a previous one (forgot the name).

I'll probably think up of some more later.

I think you meant 'Conditional Probability'..the other one is about independent/mutually exclusive events...
