I can’t do much to help at this point, but all I can say is just do your best of what you know. I always think of it as competing against myself, not against other students. Its a shame really, the boundaries make it quite a big feat to even get an A. But thats just because the exam wants only the best of the best to attain that grade.
Believe in yourself, even though you might not be set to get the A grade, you could at least try your best to attain the B or C, which is a fairly respectable grade for such a hard course. Youve already failed half of your exam before you even sat it by thinking that youll fail.
Very best of luck with Paper 1 today. After that youll have until Friday to prepare for Paper 2, so you can ask any questions in this thread, and hopefully me or the others will be able to help you out.
The fact that youre doing this course already means youre pretty good at maths!
So believe in yourself, whatevers gonna happen is gonna happen, and again, good luck!!

Hey! Paper 12 was actually alright, despite challenging! It was funny my class of 20 came out and almost everyone got different answers for the last question lol. As dreaded, the vectors & velocity (plane + wind direction) got me, so did perms and combs. so that bit was ****. But the rest was quite okay!
For those who did 12, the topics that didn't come up and are likely to be in 22 are:
1. Surds
2. Matrices
3. Trig (prolly a graph to sketch + some identities/proofs) these sometimes carry a load of marks!
4. Vectors (most likely the diagram this time) these also sometimes have many subquestions that can go up to 10 or so marks, so you're pretty much screwed if you don't know how to do part (a)(i)
5. Functions
6. Binomial Expansion
7. Remainder Theorem
8. Logarithms
9. Kinematics
10. Rates of change, and of course some more diff./integration
Sketching graphs (absolute graphs, etc.)

These are all I could think of. Have a very nice rest and good luck revising for Paper 2! Any questions are welcome to be posted here, and I'll try my best to reply with an answer.

what did you get for the last question? i don't remember the specific numbers but i got a really weird fraction!! 70 something over 30 something i think??

dont worry, im sure u did very well xx
im doing varient 11 in a few hours, so the boats and perms and combs may come up in r paper too 😭
did they ask questions like "write the number of possibilities if the two twins cannot b separated"

For the last question Imma try to remember it and solve it again. I think I got it wrong cause of a silly mistake I made in the end, but I'm confident my method can give me at least 4/7 marks. Do you happen to remember the equation of the curve?
I remembered we had to use the product rule to diff it to find the gradient at x=7/3, then find the normal gradient which was something like -3/13, then use y-y1 = m(x-x1) to find the equation of the normal. Then equate x=0 to find where it meets the y-axis. I think the correct exact answer was 73/39 (which I didn't get)
I'll need the equation of the curve to work it all out on paper tho :/
