    I am doing C 1 - 4 exams this year along with S1.

    I have failed last year by having a C in C1 and a B in C2. Obviously my last year's strategy isn't working. Would anyone like to share their strategy on revising maths. In the later years, exam papers are getting increasingly difficult (at least I find them).

    Last year I just did past papers...

    Other subjects like Physics, I am completely fine. Getting top As, and very confident this year. Chemistry is OK. But maths....I need to change how I do things.

    Past papers is really the only way. Perhaps actually look into where you went wrong and decide: was it a silly error or was it a lack of understanding? If it's a lack of understanding go over the topic quickly again to refresh your mind.

    Also do solomon papers if you've completed most of the past papers, stretches you a little bit more

    Thanks. I'll be hitting a lot of past papers in no time.
