    For maths, no secret apart from practicing. Across maths and further maths I filled a large number of workbooks (maybe 100 pages each, not sure, school standard issue), maybe 3 per module. I filled it with practice from problems. Once you master a subject, practice morendifficult questions from it online.

    It's also all about exam technique - make sure you do enough past papers and check for mistakes. One thing I did, which took up time in maths exams, was to double check in my head the calculation from the previous line. Or go back to questions with fresh eyes and check them.
