    I'm taking the higher paper and I need to get a C. I'm quite bad at maths and the exam is next week so can someone please post the main things to learn, thanks

    Im not sure if this is useful but my maths teacher thinks that circle theorems is likely to come up also things like trigonometry, pythagoras and algebra. It would probably also be useful to go over angles, graphs and traansformations. I cant think of much

    Just do as many past papers as possible and go over the topics you struggle most with. You learn a lot which could get you extra marks in the exam.

    Although this will not be helpful all of it would be useful. There are what? 45-50 questions over the two papers, this means the majority if not all of the spec will come up in some shape or form. If you struggle at maths I would try and learn the topics you find the easiest, so if algebra is your strongest area focus on that plus some other topics that way although you do not know all of the content you should be confident in at least 60-70 percent of it therefore you are likely to get a C
