# Revise c1 night before? Watch

1. Ive had to leave my c1 revison to the night before, i really want a b, is it impossible to move from a D to a B within a few hours of revision? My plan is to do all the questions by topic so i understand how to tackle the types of questions by practising them and then to do the 2013 - 2015 paper and then do Solomon papers
2. If you work hard, then it may be possible, if unlikely. Your plan sounds reasonably solid; perhaps focus on learning topics you aren't hugely confident on, or try a paper first, to highlight areas of weakness.
Make sure you know all the co-ordinate geometry formulas!
3. If you really try, you can do it!!
Good luck
4. Focus on the topics you struggle with

Why would you leave it to the last minute?
6. Yes it is possible. Revise the mark schemes of past papers and read the examiners reports!
7. Focus on doing past papers (use exam solutions) and see what you cannot do and work on that. Exam solutions has helpful videos on method of working out each topic

Would you recommend doing an allnighter ? And is doing topics by question for maths enough revision? Cos it gives me a good understanding of how to tackle any question that comes up for that topic and you basically cover most papers through it

Hey is doing topics by question for maths enough revision? Cos it gives me a good understanding of how to tackle any question that comes up for that topic and you basically cover most papers through it. Also would you recommend doing an allnighter my exams in the morning

Don't do an allnighter; the exam is in the morning, and you should really try to get some sleep. Maybe wake up an hour or so before you normally would and do a bit then?
Questions by topic is a good way to do things, though, go for that.

no

do past paper questions and cram as much as possible and remembe the things you got wrong, remember how to do them right then sleep a decent 7 hours at least
13. I just spent the last 7 hours revising for C1 and managed to go up from 60% to 91% on a past paper. I looked back through all the past papers I did, wrote down every question I didn't get full marks on and did them all again. Mr Barton's maths is a good website where it gives you his written solutions for every past paper. Identify the reoccurring problems and do lots of questions on those topics. You'll be good to go in a few hours! Good luck everyone!
