# How to get 90% in C1 Edexcel Watch

1. I have done every single edexcel past paper, and with the C1 exam 14 days away, I want to get at least 90% in that paper, however I am always averaging around 56-58/75 and generally I tend to loose out on 10 or so marks just from silly mistakes like integrating instead of differentiating (vice versa) or even messing up on simple calculations, for example in one paper I wrote 3 times 2 was 9. Any advice on how I can ace C1?
2. Do Solomon papers

It looks like you're not checking over your answers, are you sure you've done every single one? From my count there's 22 past papers: (If somehow you have, then any of the others are really good at challenging you)

If you do have time at the end go through each question. If you don't, then as you do a question just quickly look back at what you've done before turning the page, errors like 3*2=9 are fairly common and you should be able to spot them .

Do these compiled custom difficult papers all question from edexcel.

Take your time and make sure you know what you're doing.

here's some ridiculously difficult stuff(you'll never get anything like it in the exam)

But solomon papers are a good shout too.
