A-level Maths is a tough one, as I'm sure you're already aware. When I first started, I tried to do a few textbook questions every week, the exact amount depending on how hard I found the topic. As I got nearer to the end of the course, I was doing multiple past papers a week. I got out of it with an A (only a few percent off an A*) but it was definetely due to the revision. I know it's boring as f**k but it must be done I'm afraid, especially if you want a B/C

Same for quite a few A-levels tbf. If you're not naturally gifted, revision is essential. If you wanna trial it, try doing a mock with no revision done, and if you get a B/C in that, maybe you can get away with it. But I've had so many pretty talented mates get A/A*s in mocks, got cocky and thought they didn't need to revise, and boom: Cs and Ds in the finals

ah dang it, i see you were in a similar position to what i was. I got a 6 at maths in GCSE when i was predicted a 7 because i just did not revise XD.
So when it got to A levels and i chose maths, my school has implemented this weird thing where they basically give you a test at the end of september to see whether you can stay on the course or not.
Bad side to this is that they really REALLY pushed you to see how much you can handle (even my tutor was shocked that they were teaching trig identities as the first thing). So ye basically because i still had my GCSE work ethic, unfortunatly i didn't pass the test and i got kicked out of A level maths .

So ye regardless of whether your school has that test or not, you really ought to WORK DAMM HARD, i'm in year 13 and i'm feeling the pain of not working hard in year 12.

yes that's something I don't mind doing, the thing that's stressing me is all colleges expect students to revise for 15 hours a week all together, I would be lucky to Do a hour 😂

A level maths is h a r d. I am in year 13 and due to our school not doing AS Level anymore we have a total of 5 people still getting Es or Us in our mocks last week. I would not recommend A level maths to anyone who doesn’t feel like they could commit to the amount of hard work and practice questions it takes. Year 2 is particularly challenging but by the time you get to year 2 it would be far too late to drop it
