    I started my 3 A levels this year. I was told that if my Further Maths grade did not improve then I would not be allowed to continue to A2 My teacher says there is time to improve, with help and looking at techniques. My main issues are FP1 and S1. (I need an A or a B at AS to continue.)
    If anyone has any advice or tips, please share them. Your help would really be appreciated!
    I cannot afford to fail, I would only have two A levels then and since all of the exams are linear, I could not do another subject in Year 13 unless I repeated Year 12. My other option would be to leave and drop out of school.

    That's rough. My school lets students continue to A2 if they get an E! It's a shame that some providers are so selective.

    That's pretty ridiculous to be fair, especially since its still early.

    Go to ExamSolutions, watch the video tutorials, then start practicing MANY questions and you'll improve significantly.

    hegarty maths does good video tutorials and do past paper questions
    if there are any topics you still dont understand after covering them in class then watch video tutorials and work through the chapter in the book before you attempt past paper questions, build up your understanding and consolidate it with the past papers
    make sure you track your score on any past papers you do and make note of where you struggled/mistakes you made so you can target revision and avoid silly mistakes in future

    Smash it out cuz.

    1.) Go through the TEXTBOOK for your spec (Answer a few questions from each topic until you are confident)
    2.) Any Q you don't know how to answer ask your teacher
    3.) Most Importantly do ALL the past papers for your spec.

    Following these three steps 'should' get you an A no problem..
