    I got 98 in Y12

    I did a lot of solomon papers. Following that, I did a couple of actual past papers and that was it

    Just remember the concepts from the book and practice adapting them

    Past papers are the way forward. After doing 12 or so, you become really fluent with the question style. For those nasty buggers that they throw in randomly, I'd recommend Solomon papers too as they are somewhat more challenging.

    I got 100 Basically, use the text book to it's full! It has like every style of question that could be asked and covers all the techniques that will be required. To be honest, after using the text book you don't even need past papers, but if you want a feel of what it's like then a few help

    Got 100. Never did any practice (outside of lessons) from the book, never did my homework.

    Did about 7 past papers and had a degree of exposure to more advanced mathematics (FM and a modicum of STEP prep) so found C4 not very challenging.

    Self taught c4 in 3 days due to no teaching available and got 97, tbh practice which does help, doesn't give you 95+, what gives you such mark is understanding of the syllabus + accuracy

    Didn't do much revision, but attaching two £50 notes seemed to have helped.

    Yehh, you can get solution banks (for Edexcel, dunno about other boards). They have the working for all the questions in the text book. Really worth looking into

    Do lots of problems and learn as much as you can from each one - especially the ones you struggle with.

    Personally, I did every available past paper for every module that I took. That worked for me.
