    Does anyone have any tips on how to succeed at A2 maths in order to achieve the highest grade? Although I am sure that I am going to retake some AS modules next year, as C1 went awful this year for me.

    Do as many past papers as possible. If you don't understand something, ask about it. Do independent learning if you're determined enough to ensure those high grades.

    Past papers, then some more past papers, and then after that, more past papers.

    The main thing is to keep on top of the material as you are taught it- especially with C3 and C4- because the later stuff builds on earlier topics, so it's easy to lose a lot of marks from not fully understanding something from the beginning. Do as many text book questions and exam questions as possible.

    I remember with C1, I did all the past papers along with undestanding the content well and still came out of that exam feeling as if I had done rubbish

    Have a good understanding of the content, insisted of just knowing how to do certain types of questions. From my experiences this year, they're making the exams more focuses on a deeper understanding. You could do this by looking at harder exam boards/papers or asking your teacher to make up some intentionally horrible questions.

    Other than that, just keep up to date with the work and don't worry if it takes a while to understand things; it took me until May to understand vectors and I am predicted an A* !

    The only way to find out is to try it. There's a lot of C3 that builds on what you learned at AS and if your understanding is sound it ought to be possible to make a productive early start.
    It would probably be more valuable to reflect on why C1 went badly and work on Improvements that will give you a stronger foundation for learning C3&4 next year.
