    Hi guys,
    So I'm in the mids of mock season right now and I am doing extremely well in English (estimated A*). However, maths is a different story. Ive never liked maths and I've always gotten C's in exams. I'd just finished my Edexcel noncalc mock and I'm 100% sure ive gotten a D. But tomorrow is my Maths calculator Mock and I've been studying for the past 3 weeks and I just CANNOT do better than a C.
    I go through millions of past papers. Do questions that I learn the method to like..
    10 mins before. But then I look at them and I just freeze. I don't know where to start, and when I do know where to start, I end up messing up the question out of not doing it correctly! :no:
    I've never had a good Maths teacher, EVER. I assume this is why I've always done badly with maths. But I am willing to push myself to his that B grade at least. Do any of you have any life changing tips on how to study for maths so that you remember your methods and actually do well?
    Thank you all
