How is everyone feeling about Paper 1? Pure is definitely the worst for me and I’ve done all the past papers so I’m just trying to do as many questions I can :smile:

I'm gonna be honest. Out of all 3, pure is is the easiest paper and mechanics is hell. I think I can get an A* in paper 1. I've made a list of key topics that came up in previous papers (2018-2022) and made predictions on what's to come in paper 1. If you want, I can send you a link to the document

Paper 1 and 3, I have to get 80%+
Paper 2, lets aim for 60% ish
UNLESS there's easy suvat equations (around 5 marks) and Velocity Time graphs (4-6 marks)

I'm aiming for just over 50 on paper 1, 45 on paper 2 and 55 on paper 3. I'm hoping for a B but a C isn't awful.

Lmao if only, my main issue is accessing the med demand questions as I find a way to talk myself out of most of them. I've seemed to of got the hang of the higher demand ones (or at least enough for what I need)
i feel like am i finished cos i dont know anything and that the exam is very soon

I think Paper 3 is the easiest for me since I like stats. I'm 50/50 on mechanics, it depends on what questions come up for me

I think for me Paper 1 will be the hardest getting around 50-60% hopefully and Paper 2 and 3 will be much easier since I can focus on getting marks in Section B. Pure just confuses me too much and I struggle with timing a lot.

Does anyone have any hard exam questions? I've done all the papers, the questions in my textbook and maths genie so I'm not sure what to do :smile:

Thanks!
Is anyone using MyMaths to revise?
I think that the CGP AQA practise papers are a good resource sometimes quite similar to the actual paper.
