    Edexcel 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?

    Decision 2
    Date: Friday 22nd June 2018
    Time: Morning
    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
    Days to go?: 107

    Probably the most important way to prepare for maths is to do plenty of past papers! You can find all Edexcel Maths past papers here.

    Also, Physics & Maths Tutor has some good resources for revision - everything from revision notes to questions on specific topics. Materials for D2 can be found here.

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

    Why the f they put D2 along with C4 exam. I don't find maths to be difficult but its so exhausting to have a clash of 2 non-easy maths modules. I hope my brain won't switch off...

    Anyone know if on allocation linear programming you have to state that x11 refers to column 1 row 1 or if it's implied?

    My thoughts exactly ... which one are you doing first? I'm Going to need all my concentration for D2 and I hope enough of it will be left for C4.

    I will do C4 first, I need to get 94 for it to get my A* in maths. Hopefully, I will have some concentration for d2 left too to get above 90

    same... I need A* in maths and further maths. I kind of feel like D2 is practically begging one to make stupid mistakes, so, yeah, I'll have fun tomorrow...
