AQA A Level Maths Discussion Thread - 2018 Edition


Hey guys, I thought I'd make this niiiiiice and early so we can all share how we're preparing for our Maths exams this year?

Core 1
Date: Wednesday 16th May 2018
Time: Morning
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
Days to go?: 1 :crazy:

Probably the most important way to prepare for maths is to do plenty of past papers! You can find the more recent papers here and the older ones here.

Also, Physics & Maths Tutor has some good resources for revision - everything from revision notes to questions on specific topics. You can find the Core 1 materials here.

Good luck with the preparations everyone, let the countdown commence!

Last year was terrible hahaha.
Also, just a thought - do you think the grade boundaries will be higher this year considering there's less people taking the exam? Or will it have no effect whatsoever?

Probably be either high grade boundaries or difficult paper or both because everyone who's sitting it is resitting it, so have done A2 maths now.

no grade boundaries don't get affected a lot because they take into account how many sit the exam

As others have said, I feel like they might be high as people have had 2 years to revise so will be better Hopefully not though!

It's to do with how everyone performs. If everyone does well then the grade boundaries will be high, which is likely to be the case as everyone as studied the A2 units now, some have also studied further maths A2 units as well.

Yeahh that's what I meant, the number doesn't matter too much really it's just that lots of people will do better than average for a core 1 paper because there is nobody in their first year of A Levels sitting it this year.
