    How long does it take to master c1,c2 and s1
    C1 took me about a week, C2 I haven't started and S1 took me about a week as well mainly because it's one of my strongest modules

    Ok then I suggest:

    C1 (Now to end of mid November)
    C2 (December to mid January)
    S1 (February to March)

    March/April review content and do lottttssss of past papers until your exams!

    This is a rough guidance. Personally I'd try and finish learning all my modules before mid February and then do 2 months worth of reviewing content and doing loads of past papers and then by the time the exam comes it will be very easy. But I'm a very quick learner and maths has always been a natural thing for me so it varies between people

    so you're doing c1-c2-s1/m1?

    leave 2 months before the exam to go through a ton of exam papers

    You're so lucky you have January exams, a level people don't

    I don't think dedicating 2 months to a module is a good idea... that'd be very slow imo... Maybe 2 months to learn all 3.
