    Yes; there is plenty of hope! I would suggest the exam solutions videos on youtube and also do all the past papers (or as many as possible)

    I think its because maths is a different technique to sciences why I'm feeling hopeless. So say if I'm not confident in ANYTHING what would you do to begin with?? Jump straight into exam solutions? I need to cover all C1 before PAst PApers

    I do maths, physics and chemistry so I know the pain!

    Definitely watch the exam solutions videos; they cover the entire syllabus for each module. C1 should be fairly easy to grasp in a short amount of time meaning you should be able to move onto past papers fairly fast. I recommend the maths tallis papers as they have Bronze, Silver and Gold papers which relate to the difficulty.

    There's definitely time, I got E in my mock in March for C1. Since then I went through all the exam solutions tutorials in the space of a few days and have done 8-10 past papers in the last week and in the last few I've started getting A's. Do all past papers and use exam solutions / your teachers to understand where you've gone wrong and you'll do fine.

    Hey you've still got a lot of time. In all honesty, Maths is a lot easier compared to other A levels as in Maths, you only need to understand the concepts and then just practice and practice and.. practice some more whereas in other subjects you have to memorize facts and concepts etc etc. So don't lose hope at all! I am self studying for Maths and I will be giving my Maths A level exam in May/June so I know all about the pressure. Just study regularly and don't procrastinate and you will be goo to go. Oh and as others have mentioned exam solutions, do give it a go. The website is like a life saver honestly. I study from there and I don't have any tutor or school or anything ( a private candidate as a matter of fact!) .There's even a group on FB of "exam solutions" with some 3000 members or so who are actively helping each other out. It's a really environment and you feel really motivated and stuff. So yes, don't give up now. You can totally nail it. Just believe in yourself and you'll win the "you vs the examiner" game.
