    In yr12 right now. Want to get A* in maths for A level and was wondering, what sort of % do I need to be in a good place to get that A*? (% in AS)

    Also need to go from like a C/D to a high A, if anyone has any tips.

    How come 0.0

    Oh but it's not like I know nothing about the exams tho. I have been revising since December but like, only the topics we were doing. Starting on Tuesday, I'm planning on revising every single topic (basically the whole book)... So you think I won't have enough time??? D: I'm scared I really wanna do well...

    I had a document that explained what AS grades and A2 grades can amount to an A* overall but have since lost it.

    Basically it is possible to get a A* in a few different ways but id suggest you really go for a high A in AS to give the best chance.

    Look up the grade boundaries for the exam you are sitting. I do this to see what grade I'm working at. I got a B today but I'm aiming for an A*. It is possible.

    yeah it is frustrating, but just sitting there and not taking action won't relieve the frustration... come on, we can do this!!! remember we have to get the grades for our FIRM choice, if not, HIGHER, e.g. my firm choice wants ABB but i wanna get AAA within the space of just 3 months of revision (sounds impossible but i'm gonna motivate myself anyhow). no question as to why you shouldn't be ambitious like me too! go go go, start NOW, get those high grades, your a-levels won't just pass by themselves you know. good luck.

    aw thank you this really gave me the boost I needed 3 months should be just the perfect time tbh because you can go over everything at least twice with plenty of time for past papers if we work out so yeah, we'll just need to get going Best of luck to you too

    Don't listen to him 3 months is obviously enough time plus hardcore revision in the last month, and if it's not enough for people I don't even know why they're doing A levels no one revises 3 hours a day to even more more than 3, staring from September unless you're really dumb its just a waste of time you should just take notes and be on top of you're subjects it only took me 2 days to get an A* in my maths mock I would say for each exam you have turn that into weeks I have 12 so 12 weeks of revision is a really good amount of time.

    Don't worry 3 months is loads of time to do well even from learning from scratch.
