i don't actually know anywhere except for practice with specimen papers and looking at hard old spec questions. I would say Physics and Maths Tutor but they don't have much on new spec maths (if any)
maybe ask your teachers?

I will thank you.
Do you have any idea about the range of grade boundaries? Just a rough idea will do
thanks

I wouldn't know either but I reckon 80% will be an A grade and every 10% after that will be the next grade down although I do believe that if it's very difficult, the boundaries will be lower

I know which ones you're talking about but they're still locked on the Edexcel page. Maybe ask your teachers? They probably have access to them.

If I'm honest this is my easiest exam so is the least of my concerns really. I'm keeping up with the various papers we're constantly being set, but apart from that not too much more. Trying to do a wider variety of questions though because things like proofs it isn't really clear how far they could go with it, so it could be simple or really quite difficult.

Ok cheers mate. Which papers are you doing for practice? Are you doing the international C12 papers?

atm I'm just doing what my teacher is setting us (that's roughly a paper a week). We've worked through most the Edexcel materials, some of the AQA ones (even though the format is a bit different) and now we're doing some OCR A papers. They've also made up some papers. I hadn't actually thought of doing the C12 papers, that's a good shout, thanks!

I've no clue really...my teacher skipped it :facepalm: but our mechanics teacher told us to definitely make sure we learnt the place names, obviously the dates and the different column headings and their units.
