    Did lots of past papers (and Solomon papers), tracking the grade improvement and learning from the mistakes.

    Please help guys
    Hi I got a C at AS maths with 72 UMS in C1, 60 UMS in c2 and 72 in S1.
    After doing C3 and C4, C1 and C2 seem so much easier and I just spent a couple of weeks before the exams going over a few of the more difficult topics but after second year they'll seem easy enough.
    In retakes I got 95 UMS in C1 and 93 UMS in C2 and ended up getting an overall at A level. (OCR btw)

    Also the AS exams are a month before A2 exams so you still have 3/4 weeks after those to just focus on A2 again.

    No just c1 and c2 for maths and Unit 2 economics which is basically the same as unit 4 in second year so wasn't difficult to study for.

    If you focus and keep up to date on your A2 maths then you can virtually do c1 without even revising it again as it will seem so basic. C2 you can revise the few specific topics a week or two before the exam.

    Well whatever you do at least until christmas you'd be best to just focus on A2 maths because its quite a lot harder.

    In our school, we did loads in the summer, so we only have 3 chapters of C3 left to do.

    Yeah.
    Although I have found that it takes me alot of time to fully grasp what the question is really asking of me and hence so I mess it up
