    Hey

    I'm doing edexcel so C3 & C4 this week. I've been revising a lot of C3 the past few weeks hoping to get a solid B in this exam. In terms of C4 I basically almost no nothing except Partial Fractions & some simple integration.

    I've seen some of the unofficial mark schemes and I believe so far I have around:
    C1: 66-67 marks
    C2: 60-62 marks
    S1: 50-52 marks
    M1: 52-54 marks
    C3: 56-58 marks (predicted based on past papers average)
    C4: 30 marks (no idea tbh but I don't see myself getting lower than that)

    I feel like whatever happens I would still come out with a C so is there much point stressing over C4 after my C3 exam and putting all my effort into it 2 days before the exam?

    C4 will be the death of me too I am relying on c3 and my resits to still get a B overall.

    Do you have other exams this week? I would really recommend just learning integration it'll be worth it.

    You should be able to do binomial expansion as well?

    Some vectors should be alright because of mechanics

    Implicit differentiation isn't that hard to learn
    I think you should try and just do a few questions from topics you don't know

    Something that might help is to open a few C4 past papers with model answers from Physics and Maths Tutor and copy out the processes. It won't make you a C4 genius, but you might pick up a few tricks that can give you a few more marks than if you didn't. Also you might as well watch a few videos from Exam solutions if you really don't get the solution to a type of question.

    This seems to be my best hope, thank you!

    If you mean with the solutions by arsey quite often he does his own creative solution or one that is hard to follow especially if you are like OP and have a limited idea of how to do the questions anyway

    OP I'd say try to smash out questions from the first 4 chapters. Vectors you can scrape atleast half the marks and integration you can scrape a few too. Can get you like 40+/75. Just revise from the textbook and try the past exam questions and you should hopefully get them. If not ask for help. No reason to get a C when you can do better tbh

    Well, there are also video worked solutions for past papers on Examsolutions.

    c4 is not hard IMO, you're telling yourself that as a form of reassurance for your possible failure, you'll be surprised how inaccurate unofficial mark schemes are, you can get the correct answer and lose method marks . Try hard for c3 and c4, repetition is key, cover c4 then aim for 6+ papers, things start to click in place for me at that point and most people at my school around that for most subject papers.
