    Hi,

    Im doing c1 in year 11 , and i am desperate to get 100%. LOL desperate may be too strong a word, but i really want to get 100 UMS, im doing as much revision as i can, but its usually 75/75 for 100 UMS in c1, so im asking if anybody has any advice, i mean i got near 100% in GCSE maths (95%), but i have a terrible habit of missing out crucial marks. Can anybody that achieved this please give me some advice, thanks everybody

    Do EVERY past paper for the last 10 years and repeat till your getting 100% in every past paper, there will be a few questions that you may not be able to answer, but aslong as your getting 95% and more, you should get a very high ums for your actual exam

    I just did loads of past papers and aced it.

    To be honest though, it really doesn't matter if you ace it or not. A lot is down to how you feel on the day as well.

    I got 98 for some reason or other. I still doubt that i actually dropped a mark. Just get 75/75 and hope your examiner isn't a **** :mad:

    Obviously you can do lots of papers and whatnot, but I'd say, due to the very high grade boundaries in C1, it'll probably be more down to luck as to whether you get 100 rather than 95+

    Yeah, it would seem so, luck seems to play major part.

    Yeah. That's why I missed 100% twice in a row for maths. The advice for OP is check, check and check again as well. I finished the test and slept.

    Well you remind me of me last year. I got a stupid 4 mark question wrong so I only got 93 when the day before I was on 100.
