    I am not sure if i'll do S1 or M1 first juat said
    Thanks, i did do few questions but not a whole paper, it wasn't that hard (I just picked the ones i knew) past papers were (I think) the only reason i got high grade in maths gcse

    Hmm, okay so C1 is easier than C2? What is even the difference?

    Ah yes, i'll mark them myself, so i can see the mark scheme and see what kin of answers they accept

    Was helpful, Thanks so much appreciate your help
    Yeah, C1 is easier than C2. They contain some different stuff, but some similar bits: and of that, C2 progresses the C1 bit further (e.g. integration, differentiation etc. [these words will make sense by February]). My best advice would be to be prepared to work out what the question wants you to do. Even if you don't understand the topic yet, (like in the paper you did) give a stab at some working out - be adventurous with it (this is also what unis like to see). Also, it's great that you know how to use past papers properly, but please be aware that there are two relevant papers a year stretching back to 2005 for each unit that's 60 past papers for this year: start early. One other thing, Maths is one of few remaining subjects where the AS is the first year of an A Level (compulsory component) so make sure this is your focus because in other subject the AS doesn't actually matter.

    Ah yeah, i know that, i'll have AS exams for maths only, so I need to focus on that
    So there was a January exam series and a June exam series every year from 2005-2012. 2013 saw the last of the January exams, but the start of the "regional" papers (for people a certain number of hours away in case there was a leak) these papers are marked with an (R) - so there were 3 papers in 2013. Then 2014 saw the last of the regional papers - 2 exams in 2014. There was only 1 exam (June) in 2015 and the same in 2016 meaning that averaging out, you have 2 papers per year, remainder 1. It's been 10 years (approx.) since 2005 thus 2*10=20 papers.

    All that was just for one unit (20 papers for each unit) = a lot of papers.
