    My school will finish teaching the content 2 weeks before Easter. I'm planning to practise questions for 2 weeks until the Easter holidays (e.g. mixed and review exercises), and then from during/after Easter do at least 2/3 papers a week until the exam. Is that enough to get an A or should I start earlier?

    I think (if C4 is in June.. for Edexcel it is around that time I guess) then that'd leave you with about 2 months, which isn't bad.

    I think that is fine, good plan as well, should leave you with time to focus on specific areas if needs be. I remember my school finishing C4 around the same time.

    Also, you can study ahead

    Yeah I'd be doing C3 and S1 papers as I go along so I wouldn't have too much revision to do for those, meaning I can focus on c4. I just want to make sure I'm 100% confident with C4 as its really important. Thanks for your help!

    You know you could do exam questions after each topic you finish. For example, I'm roughly in a similar dilemma to you so I do Questions by Topic past papers. They roughly cover from June 2005 to June 2013 (including January questions). This way by the time you finish C4, you would have completed almost all of the past papers. (Stats, Mechanics and Decision modules date back to 2001 but the Question by Topic papers all start from June 2005 so there's a gap). Also 2014 and 2015 papers are not included. My exam board is Edexcel and I do the Set 2 papers.
