Yeah this hasn't come up for a few years so I'd learn that, other than that it's anyone's guess

Very unlikely

I highly doubt they'll ever ask this as a standalone question, as there is virtually no thinking involved since everybody just memorises it.

Edexcel appreciate most candidates have just memorised the proof, so if they do use it in a question they will usually do it with a twist like the May 2011 question (attached in an image).

Lots of difficult maths questions, make sure you learn your co-ordinate geometry well, especially your susbsituting and gradients and differentiation all that good meaty stuff

that's a good one, it might not come up though....
7. I think they'll ask the proof of the Sn = n/2{a+l} formula
8. I have a maths exam tomorrow morning and I wish it was as simple as C1.
