After doing the **revised syllabus 4047** GCE O-Level Additional Maths Paper 1, it reconfirms that Cambridge is testing **basic concepts** but presented in a different manner.

There are a few questions which are truly testing your application like the one on quadratic curve is always negative, range of m for which the graphs have two intersection points ...

I highly recommend all candidates to **read your question carefully**, keep asking yourself if you have answered the question.

An additional point to highlight is look at the **allocation of marks** to gauge the amount of working to present, the **choice of approaches** to use.

Based on what have been tested in Paper 1, we are looking forward to the following concepts in Paper 2:

**Indices****Sum & Product of roots****Factor Remainder Theorem (solving cubic equations)****Equation of circle (*Draw if you don't understand the question)****Trigonometry R formula****The Hence concept (Differentiation & Integration combined)****Partial Fraction & Integration****Properties of Integral****Differentiation & Integration of exponential function and ln function****Differentiation: Eqn of Tangent & Normal****Coordinate Geometry****Equation of circle****Binomial Expansion****Linear Law**

I would be expecting cross-chapters questions on Monday. Just like you, I'm a candidate so the above list is just my suggestion.

All the best for the final Maths paper. See you at the finishing line.

PS: Don't worry about bell curve! It's beyond our control!

I am sorry I'm not familiar with the O-Level Additional Maths Papers from India.

For Singapore, the weighting and the duration of the two papers are different.
