Edexcel C3 - 20th/23rd June 2017 - Official Thread
YES it's very early, in fact 8 months (almost) to the day. But it's useful to have a 'directory' of resources during the year and a large number will have already finished C3 and so will begin some form of preparation for the exam. If you have any extra resources, whether you've just found them or made them, just post here and I'll link them!

Exam Dates
Tuesday 20th June 2017 pm - C3 - 90mins
Friday 23rd June 2017 am - C4 - 90mins

Exam Info/Guidance:
C3:
It doesn't matter whether you're aiming for an A* or a C grade. You HAVE to do well in this, prepare thoroughly and you'll ace it. Make sure you continually do C3 work over the year, and do trig at least once a week because that **** is nasty.

C4:
HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA HHA! Binomial expansion is fun. Make sure you know your stuff lol, especially if you're wanting an A*.

Want an A* overall?
You need to get 80% across the whole A-level and 180/200 in C3 and C4. The minimum requirement is to get 75/100 in C1, C2, your AS applied module and your A2 applied module. Then you'll need 180/200 across C3 and C4.

Before you ask, you don't need 90/100 in both, you need to average 90 in both - so 80/100 in C3 and 100/100 in C4 along with an A at AS will give you an A*.

Now you've got no excuse for saying you don't have any maths work to do! This would last a lifetime, but in the unlikely event you do run out of maths to do - buy some cheap secondhand textbooks off of Amazon and that should keep you going!

Have fun!

2. If you've seen when I've started previous threads, you'll realise I'm super eager.
3. I'm doing 6 units of maths edexcel (c1-4 and s1-s2) I hope to finish it all by January as i'm working 6 hours a day. RIP ME. I hope I get an A*!
4. Excited!

C3, everything but trig is great. C4 if fine but that's probably because we haven't started integration lol.

How is it going for you?

I would recommend spreading the workload out a bit lol, cramming it all in four months before the actual exams isn't beneficial for you.

Haha fair enough and that's great!! I haven't really started past papers yet. I need to get some kind of schedule going, like one a week

The IYGBs and Solomons are really good - they make the past papers look simpler haha.

We're only in Oct so there is plenty of time

Lol i am not cramming in revision. When I finish I hope to complete past papers from other exam boards and solomon papers. I am on a gap year so I have a lot of time in a day.
14. Hi, how long do you think C4 should take?
15. Is there a thread for mechanics too?

You can get the first 4 chapters done in a day. The last two will require a bit more practice though.
