# What topics should I cover the most?

Watch
#1
I got higher tier maths exam next week for non-calculator.

I have 1 - 4 grade covered but grade 5 - 9 stuff is 50/50 at the moment, I was thinking of focusing straight on grade 5 - 7 topics since those are going to be the big bulk of the questions in the exam.

I'm using mathsgenie for reference, what topics in the grade 5 - 7 should I cover?

Do algebra and graphs. They'll be the root of a lot of things in the 7-9 bunch. Learn about completing square, turning points, functions should then come naturally. Types of graphs and perpendicular. It improves the way you think on a general scale.

Just try to do everything. Most of these will take no time, for example expanding 3 brackets. It's too hard to say what to specifically revise, because anything could come up. Histogams, box plots, algebra, graphs, vectors, proofs, congruency, circle theorems and functions are bound to come up on non calculator paper. So I would time things and focus of topics to do with calc and non calc. You should try to find what to revise on the specification from the exam board.

The ratio of marking for the exam is Algebra is 30%, Geometry 20%, Ratio 20%, Probability and Stats 15% and Numbers 15%, thus the high markers will probably be Algebra and Geometry. I'm doing the same exam and I have yet to find anyone who will say specific topics they will ask for paper 1.

Check out Corbett Maths on You Tube, he has a playlist of 214 to revise for this years exam, also his website which has a tick list for both higher and foundation, also a bit of everything paper of questions to help revise.
