    I am doing past papers and making flash cards.

    is that the most effective way to prepare, or is there other things that I could be doing?

    I’m a second year maths student at university and I find past papers is the best way, if you can do them in exam conditions and get them marked by your teachers then great, if not I find they are still the best way

    Past papers definitely.
    One thing that helped me was to chew gum while I revised formulas. Then when I wanted to remember the formula I would chew the same flavour gum later on and it immediately came to my head

    you can't chew gum in exams though. im starting to learn the formulas now, so hopefully they'll stick by the time of the exam.

    You can. And it helps you remember them anyways so you won’t have to chew gum anymore you already know them

    defo past papers! and if you’re struggling with a particular type of question, then practice those specific types until you feel more confident. a great website of past papers on every module, as well as revision resources is: physicsandmathstutor.com
    hope this helps!
