    unfortunately you cant use your teachers as an excuse, use physics and math tutor.com and exam solutions and teach yourself, you can get your grade you want but its early days you can do it

    C1 and 2 are different kettles of fish. Incredibly easy in comparison, but I see your point
    In my opinion C3 isn't much more difficult than C1 or C2. In fact I find it easier since there isn't any of that applied differentiation thing. C4 is harder but it really isn't that much harder - as long as you get the hang of integration and avoid mistakes

    What happens when I inevitably get these grades in the summer? Will i stand a chance at getting into the unis I want to?

    The unis I've applied to offer;
    A*AA
    AAA
    AAB
    AAB
    AAB

    Obviously, I won't be hitting any of these grades, what happens then? Do I stand a chance in clearing?

    If you're wondering why I'm certain on getting a U;
    - Maths
    -Just got 17% on C3 mock (easiest module)
    -Haven't understood a single thing in C4 so far
    -Understand maybe the basic M1 questions we get at the beginning of the lesson, after that, it's beyond me.
    -Still don't understand half the language they use in mechanics, I don't do physics yet they presume we know what everything means naturally, as if we've all graduated from oxford doing physics .
    -Teachers are AWFUL.
    -You can say 'work hard for a better grade', but when you almost literally know nothing, you have nothing to work at, no practice papers, nothing, because you have no knowledge you can put to practice.

    I feel like I'm wasting myself taking this ridiculous subject, had I taken something else I may have gotten into a great university...

    If it helps my situation, I could end up with a B grade at AS maths.
    If you're stuck with any maths questions (bar M2 if you do that) just message me with it and I'll try and help
