    Is it possible to attain 100% for both AS LEVEL pure maths and statistics? If it is, does anyone have tips as to how i can do that?
    Also does anyone have a few techniques that will help me during my final exam, such as time management?

    Anything is possible
    My advice would be to take your time during the test.. Keep checking over your calculations to make sure it's correct, so easy to lose easy marks
    Before the exams I would say practice.
    Make maths second nature.. Keep on doing it, learning new things, expanding on what you've learnt.. Why does this happen? Why do we use quadratic formula? Prove it etc. Then do every past paper there has been so you limit the amount of surprises you can get.
    Then you practice more and more till you can do it In like 5 seconds - so you save time for the test. Also time your self during past papers and try finish faster and get higher each time, if you get lower do the whole paper again and of you don't get full marks second time round punish yourself so you next time you remember the mistake and know if you make it again you will be punished let say like be able to factorise 10 expressions in a minute stuff like that
    Become a master.. Don't think anything is hard. Make sure you keep going over things even of its easy. Never give up and stay motivated, if you lose motivation do something else for a day relieve stress and get motivated again - (dream uni?)

    It's all a game, you can beat it easily in one go. once you've learnt all the rules and mastered the levels

    Go ahead of the class and make sure you understand everything, don't go ovrt things vaguely do like atleast 20 questions before you move on. Then in a week or 2 see if you can still do it, then in a month.. Get it into long term

    You can do it
    Good luck

    Just make sure you do all of the past papers and it's pretty reasonable as long as you don't make any big mistakes in the exam. It's also worth noting that 100% raw marks is not the same as 100% UMS.

    Yes, of course it's possible. Why wouldn't it be?
