    Is grade 8 equivalent to an A* ? If so then I strongly recommend that you do every single past paper in Maths atleast TWICE. I did all the past papers about 2/3 times each. I made basic notes on each maths topic and used them when revising. Study regularly, so I mean for 7 days of the week, you should revise maths for atleast 4 of the days. When there's a month left till exams make sure you do atleast an hour of maths each day. By doing this I managed to get an A*. I don't know if this will work for everyone but it definitely worked for me. Hope this helps, good luck!

    Practice as much as you can. As well as past papers, there are a lot of CGP books for the new exams with practice papers, questions and a guide book for understanding things. I use these and the questions are very good. Get the level 9 book as well even if you're only aiming for a grade 8 because the questions in that span from grade 7 to 9 so by using this you'll get more confident with the higher level questions.
