    Hi,

    I need some advice on what to say to my further maths teachers after a shocking performance at results day, how to pursuade them to keep me on with the following results.

    S1 77/100 (B)
    S2 37/100 (U)
    P1 80/100 (A)
    P2 62/100 (C)
    M1 50/100 (D)

    Bear in mind i have to complete P3-P6, D1 and M2-3 inorder to complete the course. I wish to attend a good university which i do not feel as though I will do with these results. I am also aware that retakes will need to be made, ideally (as im with OCR) M1, S1 in Nov (along with D1) and then P2 and S2 in Jan (along with P3 & P4)

    Regards

    Do you still enjoy maths and are you prepared to put the effort in? If the answer to those two questions is yes, then you will be able to do it.
    Ideally you want to resit at least S2/M1 and then you have next years 6 modules.
    If you're going to continue with maths and further maths next year i would advise you to grab the textbooks now and start working through them. If you put around 3hrs a night of maths in you can turn it around without problems.
    If you want him to allow you to continue with further maths then show him how hard you're working. Try to get one module of maths done by the start of September ^^.
    I got a U in January and turned that around for June. A great deal is possible.

    ok- firstly- whatever i say, get checked first. I am suggesting to you the new maths syllabus- because, you only have to do P1-3 and then any other two units.

    If this is possible, see if you can carry forward your best results for the new syllabus- im not sure if you can though.

    To be honest if you do really wanna get into a good uni, ie u need your maths, this new syllabus could help solve your problems.

    I failed maths in yr 12 with a U, but i had **** teaching and personal problems, however ive looked at the new syllabus, basically the old P1-3 has been renamed and expanded to cover 4 pure units, which means u only have to do another 2 units!

    Can anyone else use what i ave said to help this guy out- as i know what it feels liek to ge tshit maths results>

    Those modules should be relatively easy to you if you're a f.maths student. Personally, i wouldn't continue to do f.maths if i were you but that's my opinion.


    If you want to continue, I would learn the next few modules but retake EVERY one of these modules over the next year. Seriously, these modules are simple compared to the latter ones, you should find them easy once you have done p3 et cetera. Even retake the 80/100 in p1. Those extra 20 marks may be very valuable later on in the course.
