    Keep practicing questions from past papers and methods until you almost know how to do the majority of the questions that will come up.

    Use Mathswatch and practice lots of past papers in timed conditions. That will get you B+

    have a look at the spec for both of these, mathematics A is Linear so you will have to sit two papers to make up the overall grade (Non-calculator and Calculator) and Mathematics B is modular so you will need to sit three papers and they're more calculator based. Linear is harder than Modular. See the spec for both before makming the decision:

    Linear is harder because you need to know everything - all caclulator and non-calculator topics (I did this one and it's really interesting). Whereas modular is more caclulator based, which makes it alot easier.

    I was planning on doing Linear, because im starting mid year and its a home study course so I have the chance to take the exams in November this year. Linear would be better because then I can do both exams within a couple of days of each other and get them over with!
    So the content for modular and Linear are totally different then by the sounds of it?? is that right? x

    Cool, yes linear is different to modular.
    Use Mathswatch and also do past papers in timed conditions. That will get you a high grade. Good Luck!
