    Hello!

    So I'm pretty sure I failed my AS maths exam because I didn't study much (hum-hum at all). I still decided to still retake it in October/November, I won't do the A-level though.

    But I don't have my books (the school wanted them back), and even with the help of Internet there are still things I don't quite understand.

    Anyone willing to help me this summer? Through skype or anything

    Thanksss

    This forum is pretty good for asking specific questions about topics you don't understand. But if you want more help, you are welcome to message me (I have done A Level maths and a degree in a maths-based subject).

    I usually try to pop in to threads if there are specific questions being asked, I like to keep my mind occupied and non-idling.

    If you can, post a past paper completed in timed/exam conditions and show us what you're doing. I know it'll be annoying to do/scan, I'm sorry about that.

    I'll try and make a worked solution that goes through every step of the whole thing, hopefully that'll accelerate the learning process a bit. I'm sure examsolutions will help as well but there are occasions where he makes assumptions about what you already know.

    Yes with Cambridge you can retake them... I just have to ask my school, if I'm not happy with my grades, and pay again for November... I don't know, many people in my school do that every year in AS
