Based on what came up last year, I'd say there will be a straight-forward discriminant question and hopefully an arithmetic sequence without a paragraph at the beginning.
But you can always expect the usual: surds, integration (don't forget +c), differentiation, coordinate geometry and unfortunately there's always an arithmetic sequence.

Ikr it's maths, do the past papers and you'll just get those questions but tested on different parts of the question and such.

To be honest I don't find preparing for C1 to be hard at all as essentially the same questions appear every year with lilliputian variation. My personal approach is to practice the past questions by topic on the physics maths tutor page (http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...s/c1-by-topic/) or to watch the revision videos by m4ths (http://www.m4ths.com/teach-yourself-a-level-maths.html) which cover most possible questions very precisely and i find are especially good for C2.

I think it's not going to be easy because every year they make the questions a bit more harder but if you have a clear understanding on EVERYTHING then you will be fine. See the questions​ before 2010 they are easy but the 2016 was much harder.
Good Luck I hope it goes well to everyone​

Just make sure everyone knows the c1 proofs because I have a feeling that they are going to throw that at us.

But it isn't the last paper, there will be another one in 2018 and a final resit in summer 2019.
Tomorrow will be either hard or easy or something in between.
There will almost certainly be a hitter video

It might be easier than last year? I sat my GCSEs last year and the maths exam A* boundary went from 155/200 from 2015 to 170/200 in 2016. I think edexcel learn from harder papers to make the next year's papers easier. Won't count on it but just a thought!

Does anyone think there'll be a question on completing the square? We haven't had one since 2014 I don't think, so...
