    Hi guys

    I was wondering how i can get A* or A for Maths.
    Firstly, last year i done lots of past paper which is why i can just see a question and know what to do for AS..most of the time. I was wondering what i need to do for A2 as whenever i look at a past papers my head just can't pick up what to do. I haven't done any of C3 Past papers as my class just finished C3 last week. Any help regarding this topic will be useful. I just don't know where to start. any general tip would be useful. Sorry but i am just very scared right now for A2

    If you struggle to understand what the past papers are asking from you, you need to go back to the textbook. Don't ever attempt a past paper when you're not ready because you only have a finite amount of them.

    It does make sense. Have you tried the more difficult textbook questions?

    Do all the Soloman and IYGB papers. After these you should be fine for normal spec papers, as long as you understand where you went wrong and why.
