    Hi there guys! 😄 I am planning on doing Mathematics at sixth form, as one of my A-level options, alongside English Literature, Psychology and Sociology. Mathematics will be the only subject of my choice, that wasn't yet reformed.

    So, my question is, to all the math-folks out there; do you have any tips which would help me in achieving a good grade (which is at least a B) in AS Mathematics? Any help will be appreciated 😁 xx

    Practice, practice, practice. When it comes to it, do harder questions/papers like madasmaths or solomon papers if they're still relevant. Not sure how everything works with the reforms anymore. :hide: but if you can, get a headstart in like the last week or two of summer as well and study ahead if you can. Not necessary by any means but it would help a lot.

    First find out what exam board you are doing. Last year after results day i self taught the first unit of maths (core 1) i think this really helped me because I'm not naturally gifted at maths and when i started college it was just like revision and everything in the first topic came together. So my advice is every term try to get a little bit ahead with the next topic, even if you don't fully understand it all.

    Secondly some people say AS maths is easy, the content really is, but people seem to underestimate how hard the tests actually are (this was especially the case this year, I've probably ended up failing maths i had 100% on every test and on the real thing i got 38/72 a U , even with my other two papers i think i only got a B overall ). So make sure you do every past paper, mark it and understand it and also try some of the harder maths papers.
