    Please let the edexcel IGCSE students join in. Content is quite similar just IGCSE has some extra topics and is less wordy with its questions. :-)

    Good practice.

    The predictions never work though and the questions on it are quite hard that they actually are in the real exam.

    But its better to spend 3 minutes practicing a hard question that could gain you 6 marks in the exam, then you could just loose in the exam if you didn't do it before

    yes because it asks questions in 3 or 4 parts, but its good to look at some variation they could ask, what do you think?

    how come you got that? i got p=1600 and q=1/2 as i referenced to the point on the graph where t=0 and F=1600 and anything to the power of 0 is one so just rearranged

    How do you know they've made maths harder this year, and in what way? I know it got really difficult last year, but I figured they'd go a bit lighter because of all the backlash :/
