The emphasis given to each topic will vary according to the strengths and weaknesses of the students in the groups and the syllabuses for which they have been taught. It is therefore important that students give as much detail as possible on the questionnaire about their syllabus and any specific areas of difficulty. Working without calculators will also be practised as this skill forms part of the assessment criteria.

The main topic areas are as follows:

1-2 Number and Algebra

 Non-Calculator Methods Linear Equations Simultaneous Equations Quadratic Equations Completing the Square (Turning Points) Inequalities Iteration & Numerical Methods Equation of Straight Lines Sequences and Series Surds and Indices Graphical Solution of Equations Area under a Curve Functions (Composite & Inverse) Transformation of Functions
