Hi, I'm new to TSR. I'm a uni student who has dropped out of second year to change my degree but to do so I have to resit some A-Levels. I had some mitigating circumstances when I sat them and my head of year never entered me for any so I finished with ABD (Chem, Bio and Math respectively). I'm resitting bio unit 1 and also edexcel s1, m1, c3 and c4 to get them all up to A grades hopefully. I started c3 last week and am just starting chapter 7, I've been working about 6-8 hours daily working through all questions and examples in the textbook and using hegartymaths for tutorials seeing as I'm not attending college - all self learning/revision.

I think I should be finished with all material by end of February at the latest and that seems enough time to start proper practice with Solomon papers and past papers but I get anxious I don't have enough time to cover it all and practice enough to get As across the board.

Am I overreacting? Is this enough time to achieve my goals?

Any other useful tips or hints for getting As in all 4 math modules I would appreciate. Thanks

The Solomon worksheets are also very good - you'll find these here:

Maybe a strategy of doing a few worksheets and then a practice paper will help you achieve your aim.

Do you think I should finish an entire module or do a different one daily until they're all done. Currently taken the former approach with c3 and learning it all together before starting any other math

Seems sensible to hammer away at C3 & C4 as these are considered much harder modules - although your strategy may depend on how many ums you need to make up over the four modules.

Good luck
