Where does it say this? You get no formulae nowadays in GCSE maths exams.

part 3

scroll down and it gives a list of a few that you get

and the ones you don't

so i didn't revise the ones they said we would get

also in the cgp revision guide on the back cover on the inside it says the ones we get and the ones we dont and the book is for the 9-1 gcse

If you read the top it says these are formulae that you need to learn and they’re not given in the exam.

They do give you them, it’s just that they give you them when you get to the question. So for example one of the given formulas is the formula for the volume of a sphere and if you needed that for a question it would tell you in the question and give you the formula for it, there was no missing formulas for the AQA paper 1 non calculator paper

no you do get the formulas they said they'll give you but it will be on the actual question but in paper 1 there wasn't a question in which you needed any of the equations

BUT say if you had another method for approaching a question that needed an equation that should have been there - what then?

If they are supposed to give the equation they will give the equation don't worry but if you approach a question and you need the equation then you should probably learn it because they won't give you it unless they expect you to use it

Perhaps in the question they give you the formula. For example in my OCR chemistry exam they gave us the formula for atom economy and concentration under the question. I sat AQA paper 1 and all the formulae required for the questions arwnt difficult.
