    Do I need the actua textbook for maths alevel? considering a lot of people say that you only need to practice?

    Fo GCSE's I used mathswatch whie making notes, which realy helped push me from a C grade in decembe to an overall A - the funny thing is, I did literally 0 past papers. Now I know, that the A was mostly luck and that past paoers are very essential in order to succeed in maths. However, I feel that I need to learn the topics before practicing maths by doing past papers.

    Theefore, do you know any good websites that literally goes over the entire spec for maths Alevel - preferably in videos like mathswatch?

    And when shoud I stat doing past papers + Do you thinks its impotant to constantly go over notes so that I dont forget it?

    Any resources woud be apreciated

    Exam Solutions - Whole Spec with Videos
    Physics and Maths Tutor - Past Paper
    Khan Academy - Why not? 😆
    Loads more...
    However I recommend doing all past papers you can get your hands on because the exam boards can be a prick sometimes with the way they ask the questions so get used to their format.
    Good Luck.

    Learn in class, once you finish a module, start doing past papers once a week. If you take F. maths like me you end up doing 6 past papers a week 🙌
