    So I'm pretty much a strong C grade student with maths only, but I really want to get an A grade (maybe B). The only thing I struggle with in the exams is either not remember how to do the stuff, or not knowing when to apply equations and stuff to the questions etc. Anyone got any good tips to overcome this?

    Past papers. I know it sounds really cliche but trust me, it works. By doing as many past papers as possible and then marking them, you will get used how questions are worded and what knowledge and formulae needs to be applied. I am currently taking AS Level Maths but I was in the same position as you just over a year ago. Also, if there is anything you don't get, ask your teacher or anyone who can help to explain it. Good Luck! :^_^:
