Watch
Announcements
#1

After looking at Edexcel Higher Paper 1 2018, I've made a list of topics (below) that have not appeared yet. Expect a lot of these to come up in papers 2/3 but also expect some topics that have already come up in paper 1 to come up again - here's a full topic list. I did the same thing last year and the majority of the topics listed came up in the paper.

Also, here are some predicted papers for paper 2/3:
