    Im doing ocr next WED and Im just doing all the past papers, nearly done them all!

    For me, the last few questions are always hardest, hard manipulation of logs and the occasional sequence questions which tests concepts rather than numbers can throw me off a little

    Remember your +c on integration tho!

    Depends if you are doing it as a retake or first time. For retakes I would say the geometry and geometric equations. Otherwise, integration and differentiation.

    Thanks, but integration in C2 is mainly definite integration between limits so the +c isn't used as much as C1

    I think the general hard topics are "trigonometry and binomial expansion. However if you practice a topic it not longer becomes hard so do past paper questions by topic

    Also for edexcel C2 we dont need to remember to do +C for intergration

    i would say the hardest topics are some practical differentiation questions, some of the trigonometric graph questions and some of the tricky circle questions
