Hey,

I haven't done the notorious June 2013 paper (64 for 100UMS), but from what I know it requires some expected knowledge.

Things like Cos(x) = Sin(90-x) aren't specifically mentioned in the edexcel text book - you should just 'know it'

Is there anyone out there that can pour some knowledge on all or atleast some of the things we are just 'expected to know'.

PS. pre-requisite knowledge from C1,2 is fine, I am talking some useful GCSE stuff and some just 'good to know' stuff as I made an example of above.

Thanks in advance and I hope this helps everyone out

 \cos(x) = \sin(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)
 \sin(x) = \cos(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)
 \tan(x) = \cot(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)
 \cot(x) = \tan(\frac{\pi}{2}-x)

Although the last two are less likely to come up. These are just simple transformations of the graphs.

Also, be mindful of just looking for the obvious. In C1 a lot of people didn't even think of Similar Triangles for one of the questions when it was the main (and easiest) method of doing the question.

If you're ever stuck, look at the formula booklet. Moreso in C4 than C3 - something from C3 might help you with C4.
