    What did you get in s1? Have you done an s2 mock? If you are doing AQA? I have found that the books help me. But to finalize my understanding I do past papers focusing on what the mark scheme wants. It is just a matter of getting used to using the formulas and being good with you calculator, well that is what I have found it may be different for you. What do you struggle with?

    Do you do physics? If so lots of the mechanics in maths is covered in physics particularly with edexcel so perhaps you could do M1 instead of S2? or do D1... it's more puzzles than maths?

    LOL, totally agree with you about D1 Probably why I got my lowest grade in it . Also agree that M1 is pretty easy if you take physics (100 ums 72/75 )

    Yeah when it comes to results day/marking mocks its interesting to see that the usual top mathematicians do not necessarily do the best in decision maths. It's a whole separate ball game, well done with the M1 easy or not if you're getting those grades you clearly know your stuff.

    Wait can you redo AS modules you did bad on in order to improve your A level grade?

    Thanks . That seems to happen at my school, generally those who do reasonably well in core don't do so well in Decision/Discrete maths, just one of those things I guess.

    I would go through the papers highlighting what you need to pick out of the questions. Then look for these phrases in future questions to help you answer them.
