    Looking information on what AQA Linear B Higher paper is like? Im trying to get a Grade C at least in my Maths as I am interested in doing a PGCE course after I graduate in July 2016.
    I have recently sat foundation papers with AQA and the best I ever achieved was a grade D. So I tried the higher papers recently and I got a D again however this time I was only 2 marks off a C however, I sat the three Units. Unit 1 being Numbers and Statistics, Unit 2 was Algebra and Unit 3 was Algebra and Geometry.
    I was really upset as I was only 2 marks off however, I decided to do the Linear B Higher paper this time again with AQA as it is only the two papers - a Non-Calc and Calc paper and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this paper and exam board?
    It would be much appreciated!!

    Hey, are you sitting this exam in May/June? I'm also taking Linear B higher tier this year. I'm aiming for an A* though but keep getting B's

    my best advice is to make flash cards of the formulas and do as many past papers as you can.

    Yes, I have so much Uni work as well Im freaking out lol. Have you ever sat Linear B before with AQA or heard if its easier to pass than other exam papers? I just have bad luck all the time probably as it hasn't been my main focus because Im in my final year in Uni. Hoping to get it this time!
    Fingers crossed and good luck to you too
