    panic is not the only thing i'm going through at the moment. C1 IS SUPPPOSED to be the easiest and i am ashamed to say that i'm finding it quite difficult. I have no idea why. Is this what everyone feels during their first 3 months of A levels. Or is it just me?

    Can anyone give me any advice on how to improve myself. The questions in the c1 book are okay...and some i can answer and some i cant. When it comes to the exams, i totally go blank. I tried doing practice exam questions to improve myself since its the best form of revision, but although after some difficulty, i manage to understand them.....however when another exam paper is put infront of me....i just dont understand it although i've done exam practise. I dont understand what the question is asking me? Which chapter it is from? What i'm supposed to do!

    I got an A for my maths GCSE.and i chose maths alevel with complete confidence...i definetly do not want to drop it......but i also dont want to get bad for my first year and then predicted awful for the next. Can someone please help!

    First of all don't panic!!! Your doing the right thing sounds like your putting the work in!

    Give the paper below a try Its from http://www.examsolutions.co.uk:

    C1 Practice Paper

    It comes with complete model solutions containing lots of notes and tips, so will guide you through the questions on the paper, and should help build your confidence so you can tackle other past papers.

    Try to think what the question asks your for break it down in steps. Maths is simply linking all the formulae together. If you know your formulae then you should be fine. Otherwise it's not the end of the world.
    Also whenever I'm stressed I peel a orange when I'm depressed I peel a onion -more layers.
