    It is 1 month away, no worries is it your last exam?

    If you did well in those past papers then you just need to do more, if not then there is time to revise over things and still do well :borat:

    No, my last exam is C4, and S1 is surrounded by a Chemistry exam the day before and a Biology exam the day after :/.
    I did ok, just not amazing (got CCBA in the papers i've done)
    I'm just worried because last year i was getting As throughout the year in S1 mocks then in the actual exam i got a D :/, i just don't want that to happen again.

    Erk, yes. The sciences are awful, they have unit 4's/5's (and maybe 1/2) in the same week for different subjects. :huff:

    Okay, so gradually improving this time you'll probably do better having done A2, I guess you have to get the practice in now so you can just do a past paper or two after Chemstry as last minute revision.

    Nooo :hide: why? S1 makes up 1/3 of your grade so there is still some chance of impacting what you get.

    C1 and C2 went horrendously, and I'm awful at stats. I hope the year below are looking forward to having me in their maths class.

    There's still 10 days, which is a decent amount of time, to pick things up.

    And even if you don't feel confident about C1/C2, it's no reason to give up on S1 - it can go towards your grade next year, and save you from resitting that if it even comes to it.

    I would suggest working through the textbook, looking at the example and practicing questions. Use something like examsolutions to help you along the way if needs be, and then do as many past papers as you can, and that should bring you up to speed.

    I just don't feel like I understand anything - but I'm hoping to find some YouTube videos to get me through! Thanks

    That's good - it just takes some relearning and some practice.

    I've literally done nothing on this. So after the M1 exam I am going to have 7 days to relearn it all and become good at it. :crazy:
