I'm doing it. To be honest, if you're getting D's at this stage, I'd probably advise you to let it go and concentrate on your other exams.

If you worked hard (a few more past-papers) you could probably knock yourself up to a C. I guess it depends on how many other exams you have?

If there is something in particular that you are stuck on, I would be happy to help.

Good luck for the exam.

Don't listen to him. Go in with confidence and you'll give yourself a fighting chance.

Thanks I really do appreciate it! But I'm so negative tbh, and im a positive guy! People find it easy and stuff, its just me, im not competent at it

Sitting this also. I wouldn't give up just yet, you still have a good few days to go. Maybe try concentrating on certain bits you feel stronger on and focus on getting full marks in them rather than trying to go over everything?

Yup. I feeling pretty confident tbh, done all the past papers now and so just doing random questions from the textbook on my weaker topics - bloody probability

Ahh, so you have a lot, like me (I have C2, C3, C4, D1, M1 and S1).

Obviously, in an ideal world, it would be nice to do well in them all. However, if you feel that S1 has just gone over your head, it may be better to put the extra time into D1 and the other modules (doing good in them will make your S1 less significant).

It's up to you, I'm unsure on your capabilities and confidence.

Good lord!!! How come you have 3 optional modues? (S1, M1 and d1) And your right ! I suppose if I strengthen others, then s1 wont matter much, how do you find it? doing that many maths exams? what grade you after overall? What grades you on atm

I do Further Maths, so I sit 7 modules in the 1st year and 5 (harder) modules in the 2nd year. I was ill for some of the Jan exams, so I'm doing them now. I just started revision very early in order to prepare for the mass amount (I have 10 exams altogether)

I enjoy all the applied modules, but I also love pure maths. I'm extremely confident and I would love an A* (I want to go Warwick/Cambridge). Although, I make a ton of silly mistakes...

Btw, if you aren't aware already, check examsolutions.com it is a great website.
