    Hi Zacken. I wanted to ask you how it might be possible to get 300/300 ums in as maths as I think I can, but would like some tips from someone who has done a lot more maths modules and has experience in doing them. Thanks in advance!
    To be completely honest theres a fair amount of luck involved. You obviously need to understand every single bit of content, and you can develop pretty efficient checking methods but to get 100 you normally need 75/75, so its just about being able ti flawlessly execute without doing 1+1 =3 at some point

    Samb has already said most of it and I concur that it's mainly just luck. I wouldn't obsess over full UMS, it doesn't really mean much in the long run apart from personal satisfaction. But... you need to make sure you understand every single bit of what you are learning in the modules; as soon as something isn't clicking, you need to either ask a teacher or make a thread on TSR, never should you go "meh, I don't understand why the gradients are perpendicular in this question, probably won't come up in the exam, forget it." for example.

    Practising past papers is essential to hone your exam technique and I suggest you time yourself and try and work on minimising your time. I could do some of the AS papers in twenty minutes or so, which gives you plenty of time to check (NB: I finished early in all my exams, but was far too lazy to re-check things) things out and correct silly errors. If you have left-over time, try re-doing questions you aren't overly confident about with (if possible) a different method.
