This applies to all the Edexcel maths papers, but are topics that aren't listed in the advance information list appear in our exams? e.g. congruency, bearings, loci, etc.

I don't believe so, no.
It looks like they've not put that one because it requires equipment, and COVID may have meant people haven't had access to it so it looks like they won't test those elements, which is fair enough.

They are questions that are based on the topics from the advanced information meaning they are kind of accurate but in the actual exam you might have a different type of the same topic, but I would highly recommend doing them as revision as practice

you know in the list where it says simplifiying surds does that mean all the other stuff to do with surds wont be needed?

Learn all surds things to be safe because it may be useful
Edit: focus on simplification but learn other things

You might as well learn the whole surds because the topic might be simplyfing surds but you might have to do other things like rationalising

In paper 1, area of a sector is included.
As paper 1 is non calculator, I don't understand how I'll be able to do area of a sector without a calculator
Any help ?!?

Yes - you'll give an answer in terms of pi.

1. for any question on circles or sectors you would give your area answer as a multiple of pi. The angle will most likely be one that simplifies nicely with 360
2. on more complex questions (eg where the area of a triangle is subtracted from a sector) you are expected to know the exact value of sin(30). sin (45) and sin(60) to use in the 0.5absin(C) formula

Thank you!
Another thought is that you could be given the area as a multiple of pi and have to work backwards to find an angle or the radius

I thought it was interesting that "Exact trigonometric values" appears on the advanced info for paper 1 but there is no other trigonometry topic mentioned. So they may just ask something as simple as "What is cos(30)?". But it's hard to guess.

Area of a sector is on there, so they may be used for a sin value. They could also be used for Pythagoras theorem or link synoptically to other geometry (or even not geometry questions) (less likely)

Speaking of exact trig values, can some be written in different ways?
