# Is it possible for me to get an A* at A level maths? Watch

For D1 it's very easy to get an A but also very easy to get a D hahaha. FP1 is a tonne easier than C3/4 so I don't think that's going to help you. Btw C3 being 'easier' than C2 is a load of bull, C3 is defo the hardest, harder than C4 imo (or at least way more boring).
Oh okay hahaha wish me luck:') Oh okay that's good! I've barely started C3 but so far everyone's said its really easy! I hope its not too hard:')

cri its not too bad just watch out for critical path analysis, and practice that one a lotttt. it's just about doing it accurately and fast. The tests are sooooo long omg, i sat my D1 this past summer and honestly you need every single second you can spare.

Learning it, I found it quite tricky but I did a tonne of past papers the week before the exam and got 100 UMS on it so no fret Good luck!!
4. Very doable. We are the same exam board and I went from getting 87, 77, 70 (C1, C2, M1 B) to 95, 100, 80 (C3, C4, M2 A*). In my opinion, C3 has easier content, but with a greater capacity for curveballs and some answers which can be quite hard to check leaving open the possibility of silly errors. C4 has slightly harder content but if you get it down it's just going through the motions and all your answers can be easily checked if you have a calc. which can integrate between bounds. Take home messages are that it's very doable if you put the work in and that I still suck at mechanics, if you want to practice some stuff which will prepare you really well for the exam I recommend the IYGB (MadasMaths) past papers, they are harder than the edexcel ones so make them feel a lil bit easy
