I am currently preparing for my GCSE exam with AQA for May/June and I am curious as to whether AQA will have extra mathematical formulas other than the "Appendix: mathematical formulae" that they wouldn't have on the website. Also are there any good methods for memorising said formulas?

I would think that the AQA forumula sheet given in the exam will be the same as other boards. I did Edexcel last year and bought a new 9-1 grade book for practice. In that book all you got given were surface area and volume of a cone and sphere and that was it.

I made sure to learn them all anyway. The hardest being the quadratic equation. That just needs to be repeated on a sheet of paper ad nauseum, and practice getting it right in a scientific calculator in one go with some exam questions. Then just edit the + to a - for the second answer.

When I got one of those questions (and you can tell by it asking for the answer to x decimal places) I had it done in less than a minute. But check your answers each time!
