    I'm not terrible at math but. my teacher is horrendous and i just don't get anything.. She explains so badly and is the kind of teacher that you just stop listening too in the first 15 minutes.Lessons are normally started 15 minutes late and consist of doing the questions in the textbook. Also, i have kind of neglected s1 since i got 30% at the beginning of the year, and the 50% after that. I got a tutor after these bad results and have tried to improve but every time a sit down and practice i get worried and stressed that ill never catch up.

    To make things worse,,,, every lesson she finds a way of humiliating me in front of everyone. Today she did a huge lecture about how important AS is and then pointed me out as someone not doing well in s1. Also when if shes explaining something to the class she would ask me if i get it in front of everyone. ....like just me. i feel like a complete loser to be honest and i have a mock in 2 weeks. .

    Tis never too late to start, like ta wise man once said, some revision is better than none.

    To learn stuff and get better at it make sure you understand the basics first on how to do the question, then do questions out of the book and when you've completed most of them turn to past papers and start doing those because those are what you'll most likely get in your mock.

    If you don't understand anything then i'm sure someone in the tsr community can help you

    Hey there OP!

    Don't worry it's not too late. The exam is about two months or so away. If you do say 3/4 papers every week that's plenty to be ready for the exam. It's all about practice with S1!

    If you want any help with your revision for your Mathematics AS S1 exam revision here are a few tips:
    • Work through the ExamSolutions videos if you ever feel you feel like you are stuck on any section
    • Feel free to post in the TSR GCSE A-Level Forum if you are unsure about something (make sure provide the question and what you have already done)
    • Do every single past paper
    • Mark your papers and see where you have gone wrong
    • Look to do Solomon Press Papers once you have done all of the ones from your exam board
    I hope this helps.
