Could anyone give me a comprehensive list of all the topics on the new higher tier edexel spec 9-1, as I have searched online and couldn't find it. Thanks

You can just Google it. I think this is everything: learning all of this will get you a 9 assuming practice, etc.

Topics include:
- sine/cosine rule, area of triangle as 1/2abSinC
- trig
- trig exact ratios
- solving linear, quadratic equations (include fractional, algebraic fractions, etc)
- completing the square for when the coefficient is an integer or not (both +ve/-ve) and using this to: solve quadratics, show how many roots, find maximum/minimum points (and hence sketch)
- sketch functions including: quadratics, linear functions, reciprocal graphs, 1/x^2 graphs, cubics etc
- direct/inverse proportion
- FDP
- recurring decimals as fractions and vice versa
- angles & geometrical properties of shapes
- nets/elevations
- counting combinations
- solve quadratics by factorization, completing the square, using the formula, iteration
- use graphs to solve stuff like: f(x) = c (where c is a constant) or f(x) = x+1 (intersection of 2 functions)
- composite/inverse functions (and the fact that the inverse is a reflection)
- transformations including reflections, rotations, enlargements, translations (and this is applied to functions e.g. sketching 2f(x), f(1/2x), f(-x), -f(x), f(x) + c, f(x+c))
- rearranging and using iterative formulas
- circle theorems (and proving them)
-understanding what are: natural numbers, irrational numbers, rational numbers, integers, etc.

- outliers, interpolation, extrapolation
- pictograms, 2 way tables, stem and leaf (and back to back ones)

- basic notation e.g. P(a) is the prob of event a occuring
- mutually exclusive events; OR rule / AND rule
- relative frequency; expectd outcomes
- frequency trees
- independant evens; conditional probability
- set notation
- Venn Diagrams and shading e.g. (AUB)'

Same. I've sat my exam though so I can give you these tips:

Do this for every topic and repeat:

- watch videos of that topic (let's call it topic X) from: mathswatch, hegartymaths, examsolutions, m4ths (do mathswatch worksheets)
- go to topic X on your CGP guide and do their questions at the bottom of the page/end of topic
- go to topic X on your CGP exam practice workbook and do the questions and obviously mark it
- go to topic X on your CGP grade 9 workbook and do the questions and mark it

Repeat for all higher topics

Then:
- sit the CGP 9-1 practice papers
- sit the specimen papers
- sit the crashmaths, Churchill papers
- sit the PAST PAPERS (trust me if you want full/9 then you should do this) from Edexcel
- sit the Edexcel mock papers, PEE/Pixel papers, etc

Then you should be getting grade 9 if not full. Let me know if you want any help 0
