    You only need an a for c 1 & two. Getting a high a e.g. 97% won't equate in you having a higher chance to get an A* for A level

    well when i did C1 i understood it enough from going over and over it in lessons that i didn't really need to revise, so you should be fine, justm focus on the parts which you feel you're weak at, and just do a load of past papers
    i have C2 10th of Jan! i'm downloading past papers for it now

    C1 is easy, I don't think a C is impressive, in my mock most of the people got C or above, lots of people got A's. My mate got 96% and was annoyed he didn't get 100%. I advise you to get all of the past papers done in the next week and redo them untill you have 90% or more in each of them. If you really want an A you should be doing that much.

    i hated it too but i find it easy to hand with

    as soon as you see the word roots, postive roots or something similair to that, u shud be thinking b(squared)-4ac and then sub in what b and a and c is into the equation. if it's postive roots, it would be b(squared)-4ac >0
    if it has no roots, then it's less than zero

    c1 tbh is really easy compared to the rest...c2 aint so bad either, just go through the latest past papers for c1 and u will notice the similar pattern trends every year for similar questions...3 days before the exam should be enough
