I did! The only way I found to revise properly was to print out past exam papers and do them under timed conditions. When I'd finished, I would mark them and then copy up a 100% correct set into a duplicate copy of the paper. I did that for both As Maths and Further maths and I got A* in Maths and A in Further maths overall despite only a B (now called a 6) at GCSE.

It just takes practice, eventually you get used to the methods and formulae...

Idk because I got a 7 in gcse and C/B I would be happy with. But at A level this will definitely change to like an A or A* loool.

Aaa I’m relatively okay with circles and vectors, I got an 8 at gcse but I’ve struggled quite a lot this year so just hoping and trying my best.

This isn't Further Maths, it's Pearson Edexcel AS Mathematics Paper 1: Pure Mathematics

I'm so scared! I really want to do well, got an 8 at GCSE but this year has been tough for me. I've done around 15 papers, all the AS pure ones I could find and have been getting better but I feel like something is going to trip me up tomorrow. so im unsure what to revise right now.

I did my AS Maths exams in 2005. I will be thinking of you all and wishing you all the luck in the world. I stopped doing maths after sixth form and I'm not sure I could even pass GCSE Maths anymore
