    5, all maths! 4 normal and 1 resit! was one mark off the grade I wanted, didnt affect the grade I needed but I want my sheet to look pretty!

    Starting to do past papers again now, almost nothing but, like 95% past papers and then 5% reading, seems to work for me!

    I must be mad then resitting a maths module despite getting the grade that I need...
    But yep, past papers are the best thing to do for maths; that and lots of questions. The great thing is that there are so many past papers (for our exam board there are 15 per module, compared to Biology for which there are maybe 4).

    Wow, I feel for those who have 5+! I have three A2's and yet, I feel stressed - I wish everyone luck

    but yes, the odd practice question, reading, rewriting notes etc! it's started to become more intense thought - but I don't want to burn out in the last week!
