Should I bother with A/A* Maths topics?

1. I got about 55 marks on paper one and aiming for about 70 on paper two to have a secure B grade. I just can't grasp the Sine and Cosine Rule, Algebraic proofs, and some other high A/A* stuff although I can do some topics.

I am secure with all of the B,C and D topics and trying to learn new topics is just stressing me out too much. Do you guys think I have enough knowledge to gain 70 marks on paper two without high A/A* topics?

You should at least learn sine and cosine rule they are B grade topics evens C and sometimes D grade students know them
3. You need to know A grade stuff at least to secure 70 marks

what don't you get about sine and cosine rule. The formulae are given to you. You just sub numbers into an equation.
5. Yes, you won't lose anything by trying to understand the topics/practicing questions
