Hi everyone :D
I’m revising for my C3 mock at the moment and on one past paper I’ll almost get an A* and on the next I’ll get an E. There’s not one particular topic I struggle with, but for some reason sometimes I just can’t seem to understand maths and every number I write down is wrong.
At AS I found C1 and C2 okay and I was getting mostly A/B grades in past papers, but I got U on my C1 mock and a C in my real exam (and a D in C2). I struggled through M1 all year but somehow came out with a full UMS score?
I’ve always been ‘good’ at maths (I got an A* in maths and an A in further maths at GCSE), although my primary school teaching was poor and I spent all of KS3 playing catch up on basic topics. I feel like I understand the questions and the theories but I’m constantly making basic errors and forgetting simple rules which end up in me losing like 10 marks at a time.
tldr/ Sometimes maths makes sense and sometimes I can’t answer a single question.
Anyone been in a similar situation or have any advice on how to improve? I’m hoping to end up with an A at a level overall. Is that even possible or am I being too optimisic?
Thanks so much! :-)
((Ps. Sorry if this is on the wrong forum section this is my first ever post!))

Oh, we do the same modules. I would say just keep practicing and It's all formulaic so should be easy once you understand the whole mechanics of the subject. I'd also recommend using www.physicsandmathstutor.com/, for some good practice questions and notes.
