    Hey, I'm currently doing M1 with the exam board OCR MEI, i'm finding it really tricky, i can just about do the SUVAT questions and projectiles but otherwise I cant really do any other sort of question
    I've got a test on wednesday and I've been revising all week for it but I still cant get my head around the questions
    I'm so stressed about this paper as im fine with C3 and C4 and i got A's in C1 and C2 but a D in S1 last year so I really need a good grade in M1 this year to pull my marks up to get an A/B overall (im doing M1 as part of my A2 & I cant retake S1)
    Has anyone get any tips on how to do well (please dont say past papers as I tried that yesterday but as I still dont understand the theory theres no point in doing any papers!) and any resources you could share
    Thank you!

    I'm on Edexcel and struggled with M1 earlier this year (I got an E on my mock, I'm now doing past papers and getting As/Bs mostly)

    Have you got a textbook or revision workbook? I found that focusing & completing exercises on a specific thing until I got my head around it, and only then moving on to the next thing was the most effective thing to do - far less overwhelming than trying to understand everything at once! So just take it one thing at a time.

    This will take time though, so make sure you've got a revision schedule going because it will help you organize your time more effectively, and you'll probably get more done if you've planned in advance.

    I wouldn't worry about learning everything for that test - it's probably too late for that now. If you really want to do well, pick the 2 things you're worst at and do them before Wednesday. But I'd be more concerned by the actual exam and what's most effective to learn it all by then, than by assessments and tests that won't impact your grade.
