    Okay :hugs:
    I would tell you to give me a shout when you have trouble with matrices but I feel I'll probably make you even worse at it

    Nope, we upgraded them to graphical ones I know how to do it on the calculator if I can get the matrix, but I seem to have a natural talent for messing up that bit :facepalm:

    Is FP1 the closest exam paper to this exam? Do you have any papers that have been made by teachers e.t.c?
    Also, if it is FP1, should I be doing FP1 Edexcel or OCR?

    I would say Edexcel FP1 but I haven't actually tried any so I can't say for certain!
    Our teacher's have just been changing the number on specimen papers which is a bit annoying so no new papers here,

    Have any predictions been made about the grade boundaries? Also, are any practice papers available? I've been struggling to find appropriate practice...

    Hey guys, i'm doing option 2A (FP1 and FP2) for my AS but FP2's publication date seems to be after the actual AS. I already know some of the stuff but how do they expect to test us if they haven't released the book yet?
