A-level Mathematics and University

    • Thread Starter

    I'm going to start mathematics tomorrow regardless because I will very much likely need it with economics however I have some questions.

    I'm currently doing Geography, Spanish and Economics at A-level, would it be best to swap maths for one of those or add Maths.

    Just for background reference I got A* at GCSE in Geography, Spanish and Business with no revision.

    However in my maths exam I wasn't in top condition and was 1 mark off an A which was pretty poor.

    Any good revision tips for maths or efficient methods to become proficient? I'd like to think my natural ability is quite decent in general so what kind of maths schedule would be ideal for me (1 hour after every lesson of the lesson content?)

    Planning to study economics at university so what would be advisable?

    Revision timetables are for procrastinators. And study time limits are too. They don't give out marks based on time spent staring at textbooks.

    My advice is: do practice problems and ask questions until you understand the damn thing, then stop and move on.
