# Analysis of 2014 A level paper

This is the breakdown of 2014 A level H2 math paper 1 and 2.

 Pure Maths Marks Percentage Differentiation and its applications 27 13.5% Complex numbers 20 10.0% Vectors 18 9.0% Integration & its applications 15 7.5% Differential equations 13 6.5% APGP 11 5.5% Functions (Inverse, composite, even function) 9 4.5% Graphing techniques 7 3.5% Sequence and series, sigma notation 7 3.5% Mathematical Induction 5 2.5% Maclaurin’s series 4 2.0% Binomial expansion 4 2.0% Subtotal 140 70.0%
 Statistics Marks Percentage Poisson distribution 11 5.5% Probability 10 5.0% Approximation of distribution 9 4.5% Hypothesis testing 9 4.5% Permuations and combinations 8 4.0% Correlation and regression 8 4.0% Sampling 4 2.0% Binomial distribution 1 0.5% Subtotal 60 30.0%

As usual, these are the four important modules:

 Module Percentage Calculus (Differentiation, integration, differential eqn, maclaurin) 29.5% Sequence and series (Including APGP, MI, Binomial expansion) 13.5% Complex numbers 10.0% Vectors 9.0% Subtotal for 4 major modules 62.0%

Paper 1 is easy.

Paper 2 challenging questions are question 6ii, 6iii (Permutation and combination) and question 9 ii, 9 iii (Hypothesis testing).
