 +====== Analysis of Potential B203 Exam Topics 2015 ======
  
 +I've got copies of all of the previous past papers for B203, and also some specimen papers too. 
 +
 +I've read through the papers and tabulated the broad areas of theory that have come up in the last four years. I didn't go any further back because the course director changed in 2011-12 and the 2012 exams have a slightly different format from the previous ones. Also I could see a difference in the types of questions asked. ​
 +
 +The entries below are ordered by the number of times that they'​ve come up, with Part B questions prioritised over the Part A questions (because each question is 25 marks in Part B and only 10 in Part A). Obviously there could be something completely new appear in 2015, so don't restrict yourself to just these topics. ​
