A-level including AS?

I did AS stats and it was pretty easy if you remember the formulas.

A for maths, 91 ums for S1. Lots of past papers and get your head around permutation and combinations early.

S1 is a horrible topic. Easy to do well on (not too hard to understand) but loads of little bits that you need to remember. I'll be honest, S1 was on the same day as FP1 so little revision went into S1 (apart from the past papers I had to do that college set), was more bothered with FP1 :P As long as you do loads of practice and do all the stupid little things they ask for then you'll be fine At that point the only mistakes you can make are silly ones (in my S1 exam I didn't read a table properly so did things in 1,000's when actually the table was in millions or something so it was 1000's of millions...)

Doing S2 this year and so far it's a lot better (supposed to be easier to get a decent grade on too).

I got a C in stats when i revised it all in 1 day. I'm resitting it with A2 maths so i could probably get an A this time.

The best method of revision is going on examsolutions.com and learning the syllabus. Once you learn how to answer questions, past papers are king. You can never do too many past papers.
