    Welcome to the Year 12 Maths Study Group:party2:
    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
    MadAsMaths
    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!

    Good idea!
    I'm taking maths and further maths, with WJEC.
    That means I have Units 1-4 to sit(2 pure, 2 applied) this summer, and then more units for further next year(no options).
    So far my favourite topic is everything and anything involving Calculus.
    I'll be applying for medicine at university

    Hola

    Double
    Edexcel
    Nope
    FP1, D1. Might be subject to change.
    Integration and series. Broadly, analysis.
    Maths. A joint honours with compsci is a vague possibility.

    I know a bit of A-level Maths already. I'll add the little I know to https://georgesmathsnotes.blogspot.co.uk if that's of any use to anyone. I'll hang around here and help where I can.

    Probably should answer my own questions
    Are you taking single or double maths?
    Double
    What exam board are you on?
    Edexcel
    Are you being entered in for any exams this year?
    yep...AS maths and AS further maths
    What optional modules are you doing for further maths (if applicable)?
    Currently seem to be a mechanics and statistics unit...although I'm sort of hoping my college do what they used to and offer a variety and let you choose! Mechanics will go in 10 seconds flat :lol:
    What's your favourite topic so far?
    We haven't really got beyond GCSE in maths...although I quite like circles which we'll be starting after half term.
    Further maths...haven't found either complex numbers or matrices particularly inspiring so we'll see what comes next!
    What do you want to study at uni?
    Maths :heart: Preferably at Oxford (nothing like aiming high...)

    F*ck me this is keen

    I’m taking both maths and further maths

    Maths on MEI, no idea about FM

    Both A levels are being examined next year

    No idea what optional units yet because we are doing maths this year and further maths next year, and our maths is 100% linear.

    Enjoyed binomials a fair bit

    Preferably want to study medicine at university, preferably Oxford or UCL.... haha funny joke
