    I got a B in GCSE maths (considered bad by TSR standards) and then got an A (98ums) In C1 in January (have yet to take my other exams in the summer).

    For maths I can say
    - Understand the topics, buy multiple books if you need, get as much practice as possible (for edexcel I recommend the CGP book and the offical book, helped me a ton)
    - Using www.youtube.com/user/maths247 and www.examsolutions.net for key understanding
    - Past papers, check where you went wrong, go back to your book and review this topic
    - Solomon papers, you can do these before or after past papers, personally I did them before, the actual papers that way felt easier, and the topics and questions in solomon papers did come up once or twice in my c1 exam

    Other then that, revise a lot, but not too much and you should be fine (applicable for s1, c2 etc)

    In C3 and C4, the 2012 exams had some Solomon paper questions - just different equations. Exact wording and everything :eek:
