I have done the bulk of my FP3/M2/FP2 revision which consisted of working through every minor detail in the exercise books and completing all misc + rev exercises that are labelled as OCR.

I have also done past papers and am averaging 94 UMS atm as an average across all three modules in all Jan papers.

Other than doing more PP, which I will do, I am struggling to find what else to do and am wondering whether doing the questions in the book not labelled OCR are worth it? We have been told they are a complete waste of time and do not relate to OCR syllabus at all.

I understand the arguement 'they stretch your knowledge...' but that really does not apply for me. I want to do what maximises my result, my interest in mathematics and where I wish to 'stretch' myself is not in these modules.

Thanks

They are most definitely useful as a lot of the similar topics are present across these modules with all exam boards like AQA, Edexcel OCR etc

That's great that you have done the textbooks and the bulk of your revision! I have attained an A* in Mathematics at A Level, along with an A in Further Mathematics. The key for C3 and C4 is practising as much as possible with past papers, and identifying areas which you are struggling with. We have a range of expert tutors who have attained A*s in Mathematics and Further Mathematics at A Level, and so our expertise on Mathematics can aid you in your questions! We provide additional 1-1 tutoring online and in person, covering A Level content on Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Mathematics and Further Mathematics, where the tutor can tailor the sessions to your needs with past paper examples and their solutions. We have a range of free resources available on our website, including notes on Biology, Chemistry and Economics and questions by topic and their solutions on Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics.
