    I did get an A in GCSE. Im currently preparing for the maths exams that im going to have in the summer by doing C1 past papers and at college, we're practicing C2 questions/papers. The main problem I have is that I can't improve my grades when doing the C1 past papers. I know C1 is the easiest core in maths but im consistently getting C's. I need to improve this as much as possible! I know the contents on C1 quite well but I dont understand how im doing rubbish. Any tips/websites?

    Are you able to get feedback on questions you are getting wrong? Since you know the material, there must be a fundamental misunderstanding somewhere. Maybe practice some questions outside of a timed test and be really honest with yourself as to whether you really understand what you are writing and why the answers should be true or not.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
