    Hey, my target is a 9 in maths and I got 2 marks of a 9 in my mock. I would strongly recommenced just doing questions. Learn the topics and then just do lots of questions. Do as many practice/past papers as possible. It doesn't matter about the exam board because the maths they cover is always similar. The more practice you do the better you will get. I'd recommend the CGP exam practice workbooks and go on mathgenie (a website) to find practice questions and papers.
