AS i got 212 ums overall:
C1- 67ums
C2- 77ums
S1-68ums

I messed up a whole question on C1, otherwise i was on course for high 80s ums in it. Considering i got an A* at GCSE and a B in gcse further maths, do you think its possible to get to an A? Im resitting c1, when should i start revising for it? Also, im currently getting around 75-80% in c3 papers, however ive done nothing (revision) for c4 and s2 so far. Is it unrealisitc to get an A? Any suggestions of a timetable to alternate the modules im revising would be helpful, at the moment ive just been concentrating on c3 and have neglected all the others. Thanks

If you're doing C3 and C4 then you should do much better in C1 or C2 if you were to resit. Anecdotally, I've known a few people who've gone from 70s to 95-100 upon resit.

Try using our study timetable here. Do you include a lot of question practice in your revision and how many hours per week do you spend doing Mathematics?

You don't really need to revise for C1 as you have gone much further this year. Just do a couple of past papers at the end to remind yourself of the content.

I had A* in maths and A* in further maths, they are easy, so i dont think that would help. as you are going c3 and c4 it would be much more easier for you to do c1 and c2 provided you actually get c3 and c4. It would've helped if you did further maths AS as it makes core seem like piss. I do maths and further maths. got an A and B, hoping to push the B in further maths upto an A. Im taking s3 (it is much easier than s2 or s1 trust me) so it should be doable. Good luck to the both of us .

Ive finished going through c3 content, so for c3 my revision is all past papers. Ive done about 10 so far over 2 weeks and a bit, so ive been averaging about 4 hours of just c3 revision a week. As theres still about 20 more papers as well as soloman papers and gold/silver/bronze papers im not sure how i should continue doing c3 papers whilst also starting revision for c4 in preparation of being able to start papers. Do you have any advice on how much time i should be spending on revising c4 as well as continuing c3 papers per week, or what order to go about it in. Thanks for your reply

How about c4 and s2, whats the best way to collectively revise them as well as continuing papers for c3? Thanks for your reply

Also, im only retaking c1, so if its realistic to assume i get 90 ums in it, that leaves me with 235ums. Is it then realistic to get the remaining 245 ums from my a2 modules, bearing in mind ill need to average around 82ums per module?

Your school really is mad if they're making you do S2. More appropriate module would be M1. Or D1 depending on exam board.

M1 is truly brilliant (feels like I did no revision lol)

I just started S2 this week. Uniform distribution is okay. But i think normal distribution will be v difficult.
Students should come to the conclusion that C4 is less difficult than C3. Mostly methodological calculus.

You're joking right? Students might find it straightforward however it's not engaging. Most people develop interest in mechanics

Thats amazing, seriously good job! Can i ask how u went about revising and doing papers? Like your weekly timetable and whatnot. Ive only revised about 2 chapters of c4 and 2 chapters of s2 so far, so i cant start papers. C3 as i mentioned earlier ive covered all the content and im in the process of doing papers.
Thanks for your reply

Well - what exam board are you taking?
If you're in the C3 practice process that's brilliant.
Everyone is different. Personally don't bother with a revision timetable. Revise when it suits you and make sure it's productive/efficient/intense.

Speed is key.

My exam board is edexcel. This year im doing c3 c4 s2, we dont get a choice to switch the 3rd module, at the start of as maths we were asked to chose either Stats or Mechanics as our 3rd module along with core. S2 i dont find too bad, im just not sure on how much time i should spend on c4 and s2 from now till exams.
