    Here's a good predicted paper : http://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/resources/june2016p2.pdf

    There will be at least 1 trigonometry question. Also prepare for bounds, 3D shapes, cumulative frequency/histograms/stratified sample, reverse percentages, quadratic formula, simultaneous equations, similar shapes.
