WOW Thats great! Do you have any advice/revision tips on how to achieve a grade like this in maths AS? regards
• Covering A LOT of PAST PAPERS, and even topic papers. (Old specification may be useful)
• Only rote learn key terms (if necessary), and try to understand why concepts work in maths (logs, calculus, proof), rather than just knowing how to do it in specific cases (AS exams are often try to catch students out).
• Perfecting modelling questions (specifically) is very important as these tend to catch most students out. / Practise problem solving.
• Prioritise revision towards your worst topics (still revise every topic through practising, as it’s pretty much likely to appear implicitly in a question), and when you have best topics, attempt more challenging (A/*) questions, to see how well you know that topic. (AS, often have exams where harder questions are set for popular topics students perceive as easy).
I can’t really be as more specific, because I’m weirdly 70% an arts/humanities person as well as studying maths, but I hope this was somewhat useful.
