    Do all the questions and past papers you can. Then do them again.

    How many times did you do the pastpapers each one once or more than that? Also how long did you revise for and what tips do you have for a level maths in general?

    The best Year 12 Maths grades in my school history (OCR):

    C1: 100/100
    C2: 100/100
    C3: 100/100
    C4: 99/100
    FP1: 100/100
    FP3: 100/100
    M1: 100/100
    M2: 100/100
    S1: 100/100
    Total: 9 modules, 899/900 ... in ONE year. No idea what he got in his Year 13 modules but he doesn't have my school's Year 13 record (1696/1700), maybe he just didn't take 17.

    This year (in Year 12) there are 2 people taking 9 modules, I would predict they'll drop about 10 marks total each, one person taking 8 modules who I think will take 799/800 or 800/800. (Same modules as above but not FP3).

    As you can see, 299/300 is not astonishing or unbeatable. It is very impressive though. I'd be happy if I got that this year. Now if you go on to get 1799/1800 ...

    Once. If I still don't get it I do them all again. Revision was past papers. I used exam solutions for things I don't get. And exam technique is needed.

    What exam technique is there for C2 and S1? I'm on a different board but still, I'd love to learn.

    Thing is, I'm not convinced he was even that good at Maths. He never did that well in the Olympiads and stuff (he got to BMO Round 1 but not beyond, etc.). But then his A-level scores are next to perfect.

    I wonder if there are any national statistics. Has anyone ever got 1800/1800 or 1700/1700, etc.? Or at least 1200/1200?

    Congratulations, you did well in the subject that has the lowest correlation between a-level success and future mathematical potential! And the 3 exams on the easiest exam board too (I should know, that's my exam board!)

    It's a good achievement in terms of revision and you should be proud (i.e. you managed to remember what was in your textbook) but, before you start boasting, try an exam that requires real talent: STEP and BMO spring to mind.

    There was a guy a year above me who got 600/600 in Maths A level in year 12 AND got rejected by Cambridge (for medicine) - ridiculous!
