    Is it possible to learn C1+C2+S1 to a decent standard before the exams?

    C1 - 18th May
    C2 - 26th May
    S1 - 20th May

    The reason I ask is that our teacher is terrible and is hardly ever in and instead of doing work like I should of been doing I just chilled in the common room. I'd say the stuff I know at the moment can get me an E so is it worth bothering or should I just focus on everything else and sit my Maths units in Jan? I'm probably at a B/C in C1, a D/E in C2 and a U in S1.

    Is there anyway for you to do just one or two of the exams? I'd concentrate mainly on C2 and S1 as C1 is easy and could be learned in a week or so.

    I don't know about S1 but C1 and C2 are incredibly easy to self-teach. C1 should take about a week and C2 3 or 4 weeks, which gives you those two done in time for the exams. I assume S1 won't take too long either.

    I'm having to retake C1 and S1 (I got B's in both, but I need high A's). C1 is quite small and should be easy to learn in a small amount of time. S1 can get quite complicated (Probability is horrible), but do as many questions and exam papers as you can. I can't remember much about C2 except that it was like 11 chapters. You may wanna focus a bit more on that.

    C1 shouldn't take too long - it's just GCSE A* work.

    C2 will take considerably longer (with the binomial and trigonometrical identities and so on).

    S1 is remembering loads of formulae (probabilities and normal distribution are probably the most difficult topics).
