    This is a 'screenshot' of a post on another thread,please help me if you can

    'Currently I'm doing A2 Maths with MEI.I got these unit grades at AS.
    c1 - 66 UMS (on resit)
    c2 - 50 UMS
    S1 - 53 UMS
    Overall - D
    Despite 'thinking' i worked hard for them exams - i realised that my faliure to get the grade that i wanted came down to my confidence when dealing with questions.I mean i did past papers before then,and i did well on them for all of the units,but when it came to the exam,somehow i lost my confidence to tackle some questions which were both easy and hard and just left them incomplete.In the case of C1,well although the grade boundaries were 61/72 for an A with me roughly getting 52/72 raw marks i just didnt feel confident.

    So for resits i'm doing both C1 and C2 along with C3,C4 and M1 and to be honest,i'm actually confident I can get a B at least .I'm currently revising C3 and I like it,I can remember quite a lot of techniques,C4 is okay i think but M1 i struggle with but i'm learning slowly But the problem I have with C3 is that i keep fearing that i wont remember the stuff on the day of the exam.
    My question is this - how do i improve my confidence so i do well in the exams,and secondly,but whats the best way of doing well in Maths,given my situation,I've already revised C1 and C2 and nearly done C3,as ive got 13 exams in the summer,but i really really would appreciate it if you can give me advice

    Thanks'

    I actually know someone who has got into cambridge for maths and we live in one of the poorest boroughs in the UK and we also go to a state school.

    Maybe you were just not good enough.

    Maybe I wasn't, who knows about the potential I had but couldn't show.

    Maybe my potential would've shown better if I was privately educated, maybe not

    we don't know answers to these questions so we might as well just accept the truth
