i hope box plots come up for me box plots are a free 2 or 3 marks in the exam there so simple to draw and finding the IQR to draw them is straight foward as well

Has anyone here made a checklist of all the topics likely to come up on the non-calculator?

Anyone else struggling to understand vectors? The questions where the lines are split into ratios are just impossible to me😫

I struggle with vector questions that ask you to find k in the ratio. I do Edexcel btw

I refer you to CorbettMaths on youtube, he is so straightforward and makes it easy to understand. Hope that helps!

Can anyone have a look at this and mark off which ones are likely to show up in the non-calculator paper?

in theory, trigonometry, compound interest and volume/surface area are more likely to come up on the calculator but they have asked questions on these topics with basic numbers that you would not require a calculator for.
The exam boards haven't explicitly said that there are some topics that are reserved only for the calculator paper and vice versa.

Oh fair enough, I didn't know that. What about circle theorems? Do you not need a calculator for those sort of questions?

you do not need a calculator for circle theorem questions.now that you mention circles, it is very very unlikely that arc lengths and sector areas are likely to come up on the non-calc as you need to use pi and squared numbers
