They really could ask us anything from the specification but pay particular attention to:

- standard form
- surds
- trig values
- graphs
- algebra including quadratic simultaneous equations
- trig graphs
- transforming graphs
- indices
- box plots/cumulative frequency
- tangents to circles
- reverse mean
- similarity and congruence
- and transformations to name a few likely questions.

I haven't bothered revising constructions - one because they're not even maths and they're easy marks
and two because they never come up as they're hard to mark because they're so subjective.

Surds will be the most likely to come up. Anything to do with probability will probably come up.

most likely theyll come together with bearings or as a 3 marker max
