    Lots of people on here would recommend Edexcel for the shear amount of resources you have available for it. I'm starting AQA A-level maths next month and I'm so nervous about it

    Agreed with the above. Edexcel have decades worth of past papers and the exam difficulties are fairly consistent. Plenty of recent exams were easy with generously low grade boundaries

    Edexcel, I'm doing homeschool there are so many resources for edexcel... I'll list them for ya...

    http://mathswebsite.com/ > does ALL of Edexcel Maths C1-4 / S1, D1

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Edexcel-AS-...rds=C1+edexcel

    To get C2/C3/C4/S1/D1 just type on search "C2 Edexcel" and it'll pop up, same cover just different colours (if it isn't core maths modules)

    Do the lessons on mathswebsite (I'd recommend do 1 chapter of lessons first than do all exercises and improve on mistakes after each exercise so mistakes gone before revision)

    Get multi-coloured pens about 10 (make sure they not cheap as they have to last) as revision notes so revision is sorted... also try to get it all done by January (biggest flaw I did in GCSE homeschool, finishing 3 weeks before exam cost me a hell a lot for not finishing at January difference from an As to a C/Bs(only 1 A)

    Also try to get into routine before starting sixth form/college too, otherwise it'll backfire as homeschool/school is very different. Never slack back no matter what either...

    Last thing ... the routine how I do anyway...

    Maths website - goes all chapter lessons in 1-2 days depending on how much
    Exercises - gets as much done as I can in a day but not overload.

    **Do one lessons then break don't overdo, concentration drops dramatically after 20 minutes**
    Hope this helps.
