    I have to admit I've never been a fan of maths, but have managed to do well in it (A in GCSE Maths and Further Maths), and have been coping well with C1 and C2 papers for revision... But M1 might as well be in hieroglyphics. I understand what to do and what is going on, but no matter what I do my answer is ALWAYS wrong.
    It's thanks to M1 that I'm going to drop maths after AS, but I honestly don't want to.
    Any advice on improving with M1?

    It can be tricky, you have my sympathy there.

    It takes practice until you're getting most answers right. It would be good to understand why or where you go wrong if you understand the question. Are you referring to past papers or just questions in general?

    And do you understand after seeing the answer how to get to it?
