    Oh my God I feel so sorry for you. May God bless your soul. I go to sleep at like 11pm and can barely wake up at 6:30am for school.

    I will do. The one that I bought came with FIFA 18 but I also bought Black Ops 3 and 4 Modern Warefare Remastered. Also, do you mind me asking if you’re a Muslim?
    Ah lucky you get a lot of sleep!

    Oh those are good games - I used to love COD and FIFA few years back. Yeah I don't mind - I'm Muslim but I'm not that religious.

    Practice, practice, practice.

    To get a 9:
    - learn all the content and complete mathswatch interactive questions
    - complete CGP workbook + CGP grade 9 targeted workbook
    - complete mathsgenie worksheets
    - complete mathsmadeeasy worksheets (for extra practice)
    - complete justmaths worksheets
    - complete past papers (from both AQA/Edexcel)
    - complete specimen/mock/practice papers (from both AQA/Edexcel)
    - complete CrashMaths/Churchill/Grade 9 paper

    That's overkill but good to ensure maximum grade! And thanks - good luck with that 9, I'm sure you'll get it!
    I realise this is your thread, but... "that's overkill" is a huge understatement.

    Yeah it is pretty much destruction but for some, exam practice is important to getting high 220s+ (if they don't like Maths) so I gave every resource I knew xD

    Update:
    - I think I will change my modules for FM. I've done the mechanics but I think I'll change it to FP1-FP3, S2-S3-D1. I'll either take FP1-FP3, S2-S3-D1 or FP1-FP3, S2-M2-M3 but my statistics is far better than my physics and D1 is quite simple so I may do that (to ensure high UMS for Oxbridge later on) and focus on other stuff like STEP
    - Next week, got Physics GCSE Olympiad and then IMOK week after
    - Got some tests next week (Comp, Eng, Psychology and a big science mock soon)
    I'm not sure, but I think Cambridge would prefer, say, 80% in Mechanics to 100% in Decision; they advise you to focus on as much pure/mechanics as possible.

    Take this with a pinch of salt; you know more than me about this.

    Is it what you did? If so, you must have been bored stiff!

    Yeah I suppose they do which is why I'm trying to take as much pure as I can (I have to do applied in old spec :/ ) so I'm taking FP3 but my mechanics isn't as good as my stats so I may go there but you're right I suppose.

    Yeah but that sleep never seems to be enough for some reason.

    Yeah. I also used to play COD a lot when I was younger. I was quite good at it, but then I just stopped for some reason. I’m currently watching The Punisher, have you seen it? Same here, but I should be more religious in all fairness.

    When I did my GCSE, I didn't even know about the existence of problem-solving or competition Maths xD I did most of the stuff there (but not the worksheets as they're repetitive) which helped me to get a particularly high score in my December mocks in Maths but now I realised Olympiad Maths training all year around (for IMOK and solving BMO1-BMO2 problems) is way better!!

    Yeah, I binged the Punisher - amazing watch!! COD was amazing back in the day. Same but i don't know sometimes I think we as humans lack enough knowledge to acknowledge or dismiss religion so it's rational to not be too active in either direction of the argument.

    If you run out of problems but you don't want to move up to a different 'level', I found this: http://ebook.sman1-slo.sch.id/Matema...m%20primer.pdf -- A02 posted it in a different thread nearly two years ago. I'd say they're around BMO1 level (though I've only actually looked at a few).

    yea lol i grinded pure maths last year and you did for the past few years. We just didn't really value UKMT challenges. I wish we were introduced it early in year 7. We literally started proper problem solving 9 months ago.

    I’m currently watching episode 4 and so far it’s really good. Back in the day when you had a problem with someone it would be solved with a 1v1 on Rust lol. Yeah I get what you mean, but ah the end of the day we’ll be asked how much we’ve remembered God.

    Thanks for that link! I saw it a few weeks ago and I was solving some problems from there but lost the link! I'll use it for some extra practice after GCSEs for next year's BMO season.

    Yeah we just focused on pure Maths and school Maths when we should've been doing Olympiad Maths since year 7. We started it in year 10

    Season 1? Does The Punisher only have one season? Yeah that’s true, eventually everyone will get the chance but it’s a matter of how quick.

    I think a second is confirmed but I don't know when it's dropping - this year? Yeah that's true.

    Ohh right. I thought it would have been longer, but I guess it’s one of those Netflix Originals where it’s a short one. It’s really good though, it deserves to go on longer.
