What is the Advanced Information
The main aim is to help you use your revision time effectively. In the case of Maths, you will see that the advice consists of a list of topics which will be the “major focus” of questions in your exams.
You can see that Paper 1 will include one question on the factor theorem, one on periodic sequences, and so on. But you may not need to understand and use sigma notation for sums of series, for instance. We recommend that you compare this list with the much longer list of possibilities given in the Specification – it may take some time to digest all the advice.
Study the Whole Course
If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it. Every topic on the specification may be relevant to the answer of some question or the focus of a question with a smaller number of marks.
Our general advice is to complete all lessons but to keep this list of topics close to hand during the revision process and make sure you are particularly well prepared to answer questions on all these named topics.
- If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it
- complete all lessons and Tutor Marked Assignments
- Use the Advanced Information to tailor your revision
AQA may issue updated information or additional guidance at any point. Please check the subject page for Maths regularly.
