On a serious note, the key is to just keep up with all your work all the time and keep doing past paper questions. If you can do 2019s a Level papers you should be fine

I got an A* and all I can say is try to nail AS as it’s such a good foundation of skills for A2 part of the course. Also keep up with work as much as you can

we took the papers for our end of year 12 exams and I got an A*. Use the specification deeply (this is how I knew the sum notation for integration, for that horrid q on paper 2) and use the pearson books.

Honestly do as much maths as you can, stick with the new stuff as much as you can but if you run out do some old stuff. It’s literally just practice practice practice

i didnt use any old spec papers, they're so laughable in comparison. Instead, I used new spec papers from every exam board, the cgp papers and the papers on UpLearn (dont pay, just make a 3 day free trial and get the papers)

I think you can only get our past papers with the full version (paid or scholarship)

I did the old spec last year as there wasnt a lot of past papers out but I don't recommend now as there are more past papers out there now. the new spec has increased the amount of application and interpreting the question which was not there in the old spec
