Year 12 Maths Study Group (new spec!) watch

1. Welcome to the Year 12 Maths Study Group
As maths is the most popular A level subject nationally, we thought that we should have a community for all the year 12s taking maths to get help on any maths problems they have and talk about all things maths! You can ask questions in this thread, or you can post it in the maths forum here.

I'll be adding more resources as time goes on (and more are released for the new spec!) but I'll start off with these:

Other resources
TSR guide to the new specification
Physics & Maths Tutor
ExamSolutions
Maths Genie
Underground Mathematics
S-cool
Dr Frost
Revision Maths
Brilliant
NRICH
Crash Maths
Mr Barton Maths
M4ths
Paul's Online Maths Notes
NB: Some of these resources are primarily aimed at the old specification (or occasionally not at UK specifications at all!) so not all the content will be relevant, and some will be missing in comparison to the new specification.
There are also specific exam board resources:
Edexcel
AQA: Maths | Further Maths
OCR: A Maths | A Further Maths | B Maths | B Further Maths
WJEC

This thread is for anything maths, but to start off discussion, try answering some of these questions:
Are you taking single or double maths?
What exam board are you on?
Are you being entered in for any exams this year?
What optional modules are you doing for further maths (if applicable)?
What's your favourite topic so far?
What do you want to study at uni?

All the usual maths posting guidelines apply (as well as the community guidelines), so please bear this in mind when posting!
