    Hi, I need a B to get into my A level computing and Chemistry courses but I always end up getting a little bit less than a B (I have no problem with not passing). I feel as if I have done really bad in paper 1 (estimated 40 marks out of 100 ) and I will need at least 50 or 60 on the next paper to get a B. Does anybody have any revision tips or websites?????

    Im same apart from im trying to get an A. I got about 63 marks on the non calc. Since according to everyone else it was easy then the grade boundaries are gunna be high so i need at least 73 marks on the calc.
    Ive decided to dedicate at least an hour a day to maths revision every day til then.

    Best bet is to prioritise topics that weren't on the non calc such as:

    Trial + Improvement
    Volume of a sphere and cone
    Cumulative Frequency
    Graph Transformations
