    Would you recommend going over C2 circles? I'm pretty sure I've forgotten all of it (even forming a cartesian equation for a circle) and I think I've seen it in a C4 question.

    Not sure what papers to do might just do all the Solomon papers and then all the gold papers and then the 2010-2015 papers for edexcel wondering if that's would be enough for c4

    Yes, spend half an hour going over them again.

    It definitely would. But considering the age and amount of Solomon Papers, as well as the fact that becoming familiar with the format of the exam questions is very important, I'd say do the official papers first, then jump onto the solomon papers. Perhaps leaving a couple of the official papers for nearer to the exam would be prudent. You should 100% not leave the 2014/2015 papers for last

    Why not? I do those papers the night before the exam and it works out fine.

    Just feel like being in touch with the most recent exams is pretty important...

    Being in touch with maths is more important, I would think. In either case, 2010-2013/14 is still pretty recent.

    What do you think one can do in that time to achieve those marks?

    I'd say one day of watching exam solutions videos, two days of past papers should suffice for full UMS.

    The content is rather easy to learn. Just do all the reciew exercises in 2 days and that will have at 70-80ums already. Then do all the recent papers.
    A levels maths is nothing but practice.

    Go all day on maths for one day (Dont procrastinate!), you can literally finish off the content in a few days, and go through some examples. After that, you can practice some maths daily and go through past papers.

    If you struggle with math, and/or your C12 isn't good enough. I guess you'll take around 7-10 days for covering up the content and going through some examples, that should be good enough for a B atleast.

    Definitely agree with this. Practice makes perfect!

    Also make sure to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them!
