Aiming for A* in Maths.

Stuff I'm struggling with: As stupid as it sounds, Numerical Methods and Modulus graphs. Everything else is straightforward enough imo.
Who's finished content, we still have a few small topics in pure and a few in mechanics and stats to go idk how we're going to get it all done aaah!! I'm trying to keep on top of the old stuff and practising new stuff as we go bc I know it'll be pushed for time, luckily I have May to solidify the more recent topics...

I do Further Maths and we've finished Normal Maths in Year 12 and we've finished Further Maths just a week ago. We're now looking at extension stuff that we could get asked in both Further Maths and normal Maths like working out the size of the population in a binomial given normal distribution data (these sorts of questions will go for like 8 marks on a normal Stats paper and is not a long way from the realm of possibility of appearing in the paper we're going to sit, though chances of it are quite slim) and looking at solving differential equations by substitution in Further Maths, which you don't have to do.

It just doesn't feel like real Maths. I can do this stuff on change of sign from memory and Newton Raphson because it's just a formulae but the other stuff, I can't remember any of it and I easily forget things if I think it's useless. If the past papers are anything to go by, if the paper we are going to be sitting is as easy as those, A* shouldn't be too problematic. However, the 2023 paper was quite difficult in comparison to some of the other papers so who knows how hard it will be?

Lol, we are polar opposites - I felt the 2019 papers and 2022 papers were really easy. And when I say hard, I don't mean to say I found it hard - I mean it was harder in comparison to some of the other papers (in case I didn't make it clear).
I found the 2018 paper quite challenging tbh and the grade boundaries too...😬

Yeah the stats part of the 2018 paper was known to be challenging from what I can remember, but I didn’t do that exam series nor did I sit A-level Maths.
