    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

    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...
