Anyone else relying on this exam for an A?
anybody have a list of pure topics yet to appear?

Some of these have appeared already but will probably appear again, from the top of my head:
Proof, graph things (translations, stationary points, asymptotes, etc), vectors, e and log stuff, probably more parametric things
my feeling on pure topics:
- parametric equations
- differential equations (maybe some harder integrations)
- implicit differentiation (maybe with quotient rule?)
- graphical transformation
- harmonic form for trig(?)
- rate of change/some sort of chain rule
This paper will be ****ed just like the last one
mechanics is actually impossible
Does anyone have access to the 2022 mechanics paper and mark scheme?
this thread is so dry, I assume everyone is revising for biology instead
It was like this last week too

yes I did less well on the stats side but mechanics is normally quite simple compared to everything else once you get used to the questions
we haven't had trapezium rule or sequences either

Yep, since chem has been going badly, I really need this A in maths for my offer 😭. The pure test was pretty good, stats was mixed and I'm hoping mechanics can bring it all together...

I think that they will open with either an inequalities graph or a trapezium/rectangle rule question today
Anyone have the 2022 paper 3 mark scheme??

thanks, you're a life saver.
Remember to revise parallel integration it’s definitely coming up on pure
Good luck everyone!
That was worst test I've ever done
