    Hey guys, do you think its possible to complete Maths A-level in one year? I'm currently on C1, finishing chapter 5 and I'm finding it fine

    I hope to get grade A/A* given I work ect
    I wouldn't advise it. I'm doing A-level maths. When it gets to C3-C4, it's going to be much harder. Trust me.

    I did three A levels in just over four months from scratch including Maths. Got A* A* A. This is not some hoax or made up nonsense. I started in early February and took all the AS and A2 papers at once sitting this past summer.

    I have a tutor and I really do want to stick with Maths but thanks for the advice.
    I heard c3-c4 are awful but I'm spending a year trying to fix my grades

    any tips for maths a level in general?

    p.s i kind of need maths for economics anyway
    I would advise going over what you've done so far over and over again.
    Practise makes perfect.

    Woah, 2 full A levels in 1 year?!

    How did you revise for maths? I mean your routine with past papers, exercises and solomon papers

    p.s you did edexcel right?

    OCR, and I had a 1 on 1 tutor for physics and maths, so that was super helpful since I could choose pace and get elaboration whenever I needed it :P. We just worked out how much time we had to cover all the material, then spread it all out evenly, leaving 2-3 weeks at the end to just do a ton of past papers

    We sat 3 units in January, C1, C2, S1 so I'd guess like 2 months? Maybe nearer 6 weeks.
