  1. Hello,
    I'm sorry if it seems like a stupid question, but maths is my weakest subject! i'm trying to limit down my revision for maths because, I've got so many other subjects to revise for and i feel like i'm spending too much time on maths. Is there any chance any could just give me a list of topics that won't appear on the non calculator paper? or can any topic appear really? thanks for any help.

  2. Hi,
    I am also currently doing GCSEs but both my exams are calculator papers. So maybe you should say what board you do? Or check on the specification for that board because if both papers have different topics it would probably say it on there.

  3. Hello!
    I'm also taking the Maths Paper and had these exact thoughts. I'll show you my though process:

    Anything involving sin(), cos() and tan() - This removes Trig/SOHCAHTOA - You need to remember that Pythagoras can still come up, just with basic numbers.

    Advanced Volume - one of like a cone or anything requiring you to multiply large decimals.

    Trial and Improvement (thank god) - Obviously, you can't really calculate 53.64 cubed.

    Direct/Inverse Proportion - Little bit of a tricky one, came up on one of the past papers I have done, it has the potential I guess.



    -- What to revise?
    Looking at the past papers from the past 4 years, I've found that some topics always come up.

    Surds - Factorising or 'proving that x ='
    Circle Theorems - Usually comes up as a simple 3 marker at the beginning or a 6marker on something like alt segment theory
    Ratio and Proportion - Pretty much a standard thing to expect 'daisy has 100g of cake mix, butter and flour in ratio 3:6'
    Cumulative Freq - Usually a multiple ( a, b, c) part question, requiring you to fill in a table and then complete a graph
    Box Plots - Majority of papers I've done have these on, either creating one or analysing them for IQR etc.
    Vectors - Sometimes come up, usually its either again a 3-4 marker for a simple what is BA or is a show how these are parallel
    Completing the square - Standard really, 'put 3x + 6x +21 into the formula'
    Simultaneous Equations - Always a damn one of these, usually towards the back of the paper

    These are not all the topics that can come up obviously, it would be good to check the exam board spec- for all the topics you need to know.
    If you're having any problems, I suggest checking out the YT Channel 'HegartyMaths' - He has a playlist on all the essential GCSE Higher topics, really good for revision!

    Hope this helps!
