OK, I'm doing A-level maths, and we have this test next week that basically decides whether or not we can stay on the course: if we get 70% or more we pass, any less and we get thrown off the course, to put it bluntly.

Anyway, the topics on the test include:
Linear equations (A strong point)
Surds (I'm good at these)
Quadratics (Not my strong point)
Completing the square (Arrgh!)

I know you're all going to moan at me when I tell you that I didn't really practice any of this during the summer (very stupid of me, I know); I am literally about to start practicing as soon as I post this thread, but does anyone have any advice? Thanks in advance.

Do as many questions as you can!
Do a topic each day and concentrate on only doing questions of that topic
Then after the 4 days , do some mixed questions

Use maths solutions. It's really good.

It's been a couple years since I did my A-levels. The site is called examsolutions.net. It's very good.

OK, so I'm doing quadratic equations now: it's funny - I'm perfectly alright with the multiplying in and out of brackets, but the factorising I can't seem to get my head round at all! I think it's because of all the possibilities there are when factorising...
