    You get 90+ UMS in C3 by doing very well in the exam. As long as you get 90+ on all the past papers and all the C3 content around, you should be fine. Though no guarantees - from personal experience lol

    Do mixed exercises, if you get stuck on a particular type of question then go back to the other question. I personally didn't do the Solomon papers (back in 2014 :eek4:) but they're worth a shot, having seen some of the recent papers

    When you say everything in the book, can I get away with just doing the mixed exercises ??

    I recommend attempting the IYGB papers found at http://www.madasmaths.com/archive_iy...ce_papers.html. Some of them are slightly harder than Solomon papers and are good practice. But first make sure you know all of the C3 specification before attempting any past papers. So yeah maybe I'd do mixed exercises first or something.
