    Don't bother with many Edexcel papers in that case. Stretch yourself with some extension material and then attempt the most recent papers (including R/IAL).

    You need to aim for full raw marks.

    You just need a good exercise/text book and to have done the questions from it, once you've done it you should have enough experience at spotting what technique is needed in the exam. Probably worth doing a couple of past papers to ensure your timing is good though. Also probably study the previous couple papers to see recurring pattersn/questions. There's onlu a need to do more than a couple past papers if your timing is off imo but it all depends on how you want to work

    Full=100% raw
    So we have
    (x/75).100=100
    Upon dividing by 100=/=0
    <-> (x/75)=1
    Multiplying by 75
    X=75
    Hence 75/75 is the required mark.

    I got 100 UMS in C1 :ahee: (not so much in C2 lmao). Do a LOT of past papers, practice a lot. If you get stuck on a particular question, I found it helpful to not go straight to the mark scheme, but go to your textbooks etc and do similar questions. This will give you an idea of the methods etc. After that then attempt to do the question again. Also, make sure to do the Solomon Bronze/Silver/Gold papers, especially Gold.
    Did you do AS last year?

    Getting 100 requires a fair amount of luck tbh with you. You can do all the practice in the world, understand every little bit of content involved but ultimately to get 100 it comes down to being able to flawlessly execute an exam, since most of the time you will need 75/75 to get it. Yes, there are things you can do to reduce the chances of silly mistakes, misreads etc but ultimately the risk will always be there, whether you have done 6 papers or 30. You just have to stay calm when you inevitably make mistakes and do what you can to rectify them in the exam.
