    Depends on the person, I didn't really notice a step-up. But yeah, you should be happy.
    I hope I'll be alright by the time I get to A2 then

    Also, are solomon papers meant to be harder than the actual AS-level exams?

    You should practise normal papers first, no?

    Yeah I was going to save the "normal " past papers that are all on ExamSolutions until around about 2 weeks before my first exam.

    Also, for the non-calculator exam (C1) is it worth learning my cube numbers because I'm always coming across questions where you have to find the cube root of a number.

    You should only learn your cube numbers up till about 5^3 or 6^3 maximum.

    Thank you Zacken,
    I had a feeling I wouldn't need to remember cube numbers all the way up to 10. But wanted to make sure I'm half prepared for those kind of questions!

    To be honest, just do questions and you'll ingrain what you need to know!
