    So, its the beginning of February and I really want to commit myself to getting all A's in my AS Maths exams this year (C1, C2 and S1).

    What advice would you give me right now to work towards this goal? Especially if you achieved A's in AS maths, what were you doing around this time of year to prepare for your exams?
    What regrets did you have and what advice would you give to someone in year 12 right now??...

    -Thanks in advance

    First of all, do not just assume C1 will be an easy grade (this especially applies if you do further maths), by the time you've finished C2 you will probably think of C1 as easy, but if you are not prepared for it you will end up with C1 letting you down. Someone in my class who got A or B in every other maths/further maths module ended up with a C in C1 because they were not prepared.

    In my opinion, http://www.madasmaths.com/ is an incredibly useful resourse for core maths revision if you want the top grades, under "IYGB practice papers", they have papers (based on the edexcel specification) which go above and beyond the kind of problems you would get in a real paper, so if you can practice enough to do those you will be more than prepared for the real exam.

    Do every single past paper there is, you can find these easily online. Identify which questions/topics you get wrong a lot and do more practice on these. Make sure to do the papers under timed conditions.
