Edexcel A Level Mathematics
(edited 1 month ago)
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.
how have people found the stats 2018 paper? i found it really hard

On that note, Imma do it now and see how bad it is.

I agree that the Mech+Stats paper was harder than normal but I don't think it was that bad...there was one question I had absolutely no clue how to do (it was one of the mechanics ones) but all in all, I think it was doable. I got 89 out of 100. I did some Further Stats on one of the questions because it makes things far simpler and I couldn't remember the method I should employ using Normal Maths (it was that question to do with the number of trials until the first success....I assumed a geometric distribution and the formulae for P(X=x) = p * (1-p)^x-1 where p represents the success probability in the expression: X~Geo(p). )

You don't need to know about the geometric distribution but I felt that it would be easier to do it through this way.

yeah i havent done the mechanics section yet but idk why i found the stats really hard, guess im gonna have to bang out more practise to improve
