    I recommend doing 2/3 timed past papers a day and aiming for 72 or 73. Also, what is your second unit, S1. M1 or P2?

    Past papers, do hem at regular intervals. 1 months you just make the most of the time left as efficiently as you can.

    S1.

    Ugh, I don't know what's come over me, I'm usually quite okay with maths, but nowadays I'm struggling. I feel very stressed.

    if you practise, it is quite easy to get 100% in S1. The only real weird thing is permutations and combinations, I suggest that if you struggle with them you have a look at youtube videos by examsolutions. There is like 4 or 5 on p+c and they are quite well explained.

    thank you! s1 is okay, I just get confused with continuity correction and P + C

    But P1

    I really struggle with variant 3 and I'm terrible at the functions and graphs, domain and range thing. It's horrible

    Your exams start in APRIL? Wow, that's early. Sorry, I don't do maths but just wanted to say relax, revise and I'm sure you will be fine. Plus, AS exams don't count towards your final A level grade so if they aren't amazing it won't matter.

    Haha I see. Well in that case, you have a month and a half so definitely chill. A lot can be achieved in that time... I started revising for my AS exams less than a month before they started so you are ahead of the game.
