    So, I have been working hard from October last year and since then I have jumped up from a Low B to a mid A in a space of a few months. I need an A to get into my a level courses but I would really like that A*. To those who got an A* especially on this exam board, what were the best revision techniques for you?

    Are you planning on taking both maths and further maths or just maths at A-Level? Also doing past papers will definitely help you out a lot.

    Do every single practice q you can find. If you get it wrong do it again without looking at the mark scheme until you get it all correct.
    Look specifically for the A* topics & do every question. Just repeat until it comes naturally.

    Huh? You asked a public question on a public forum, I publicly responded. What's your issue? I thought I gave some cracking advice.
