GCSE 9-1 2018 - Edexcel AQA OCR ... & IGCSE


The end is in sight! All the new or updated resources for Paper 3 are in RED. The ones in black are still relevant but were produced before Paper 2 happened.

This page is a round-up of resources for GCSE & IGCSE produced before the final paper. Remember Best Guess is a GUESS and a predicted paper is JUST A GUESS. Revise everything even if it came up on earlier papers! Here's Uncle Graham:






Students and tutees should be aware that schools or tutors may be planning to give these papers to you before the next paper, and so doing all of them without help may not be the best preparation - it is better to ask so you can work with your teachers and tutors.

If you produce or discover any resources I could add, please email adamcreen@hotmail.com or tweet @adamcreen. Thanks!

Casio Calculator Pricing

The idea for this all started in June 2017. With new calculators for A Level and much parental confusion about what Year 7 students should be buying, I asked:



So here it is!


These are the current UK shop prices for the 3 newest models of Casio calculator for schools.


You will find cheaper prices on eBay, Amazon and other online suppliers for some products, but they may be from overseas, not contain UK manuals, or be programmed in a different language. Bulk orders may incur customs duty.


Let me know if you see any cheaper deals: email adamcreen@hotmail.com or tweet @adamcreen
