    The good news is...EVERY question in the upcoming c2 exam would have been repeated from a past paper, R paper or IAL. Past papers go back to 2005. R papers are 2 papers. IAL start from jan 14. GL!!!! XD
    Yes exactly that

    Last year it was considered an easy paper. We could very well be seeing a much harder paper this year.

    Have you guys noticed, they changed the style of the questions- no simultaneous equations, transformations of graphs, the order was messed up - they just chucking in questions from reserve papers that havent been used , they will do same for c2 i guess
    so you have noticed aswell- I dont get that either- they didnt not put it in C1 but put a few C2 question in that.
    y=2 to the power x etc

    Do we have to know how to prove the rules of logs? (e.g. proof of logXY = logX + logY)

    Because it is every year. Even the recent C1 paper. Everything has come up before (the same concept), expect for the C is a positive constant thing.

    Not necessarily.. I done an FP1 paper today written by edexcel but it is a further maths module and about 2 new questions came up which I have never came across ever before.

    Yeah, M3 was a bit dodgy too! C4 they can ask more stuff like intergration by inspection and in C3 they've NEVER asked about the factor formulas/proof by contradiction, etc.
    But for c1/c2/s1/m1....i can't see anything out of the ordinary coming up!

    I can't see proof by contradiction ever coming up. Purely because they know it's just a waste of marks that they could use to add some more discriminating questions to the paper. It's like with S1 last year where there wasn't a lot of theory as there usually is. The applied modules have more scope for weird questions though

    The factor formulae are not on the spec.

    I thought they were on the spec for C3? That's why they're in the formula book for the exam. I'm so confused. Do we have to learn it or not?

    They were left in the formula book from an older specification. If you check the Edexcel specification, there is no mention of the factor formulae. It may be useful to do a bit of practice with them, but they're not directly examinable!
