    AQA A Level Maths Discussion Thread - 2018 Edition

    Hey guys, I thought I'd make this niiiiiice and early so we can all share how we're preparing for our Maths exams this year?

    Mechanics 3
    Date: Wednesday 6th June 2018
    Time: Morning
    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
    Days to go?: 31

    Probably the most important way to prepare for maths is to do plenty of past papers! You can find the more recent papers here and the older ones here.

    Also, Physics & Maths Tutor has some good resources for revision - everything from revision notes to questions on specific topics. You can find the Mechanics 3 materials here.

    Good luck with the preparations everyone, let the countdown commence!

    jesus i hope not !!

    whenever i go through a relative motion q from a past paper i'm like "yeah this isn't so bad actually, this makes perfect sense" and then i'll try the next paper and my mind goes totally blank !

    out of interest, are you guys self teaching M3 or did you have timetabled lessons?
