A level mathsWatch
So I am struggling a little bit... (ok, quite a lot) at maths A level and I'm worried because it's only the first year! My maths AS level exams are coming up and I was just wondering whether there are any useful resources to help me improve? I'm looking for something organised and not too time consuming, as I have other subjects that require my time too.
What exam board do you do for maths? Is it the topics in general that you are struggling with or the revision?
Here's some of the things that I try to do.....
Practice as many questions from the textbook as possible to learn the tricks and techniques.
As many past papers as possible building up from doing section A, then B, then a whole paper and working on my timings.
Write down any standard answers that come up often.
YouTube videos such as Khan Academy.
Maths and physics tutor website.
Isaac Physics website
My Maths if you have access.
A good revision guide that explains the methods simply e.g. CGP.
Hope this helps
Thanks so much! I think the exam board is EDEXCEL but everything you've given me doesn't seem specific. It's all really helpful so thanks again!

I tend to use Physics and Maths tutor as it has the past papers along with worked answers. Also if you prefer someone explaining something to you, you could use exam solutions...these are videos of past exam questions explaining step by step how to do them. This got me through AS maths and is helping me a lot with A2!
Hope this helps 😀
Hegarty Maths is also a really useful one (I can't remember the name of the website but a quick Google should help you out). You have to make an account but it is free and totally worth it. Think ExamSolutions in terms of the explanatory videos but it's presented along a checklist that creates a pie chart and damn do I love a bit of data. I find his videos the best, especially when cramming an entire units learning into the weekend before an exam (poor time management, try to avoid this).
