    My teacher thinks it will be relatively easy based on the difficulty of the core 1 paper. I'm not sure - all of the maths papers so far this year have been a bit weird :/

    I certainly agree, although if you look at C1 and C2 in tandem from last year they both seem to be equally terrible. I know nothing about the A2 stuff this year but I know C1 and FP1 have been considerably harder than past papers my teacher thinks series, logs, all the normal stuff will come up. Good luck!

    Thanks, good luck to you too . My friend says M2 was quite weird as well. I'm hoping to do well in C2 to make up for the disaster that was C1!!

    4 (i) Find the binomial expansion of (2 + x) 5 , simplifying the terms.
    [4] (ii) Hence find the coefficient of y 3 in the expansion of (2 + 3y + y 2 ) 5 . [3]

    I think you expand it like you would the first part but use (3y+y^2) in the place of x.
    So it would be:

    2^5 + 5x2^4x(3y+y^2) + ... etc.

    I'm soo scared about core 2
    Core 1 was a living nightmare. As we walked out of the hall one of the teachers was like 'That exam was hard wasn't it?'
    I wanted to cry

    If the course goes linear, does that mean we cant retake any specific modules? for example re take c1 if we wanted to redeem ourselves from that awful paper we had last week
