I’m sorry mate but I don’t think you can go from a D to an A in two weeks

yeah frankly I think it is unlikely, I did my A levels a few years ago and got an A, but that was after weeks of revision and I know I couldn't pull it off in 2 weeks.
By all means, put as much effort and work into it as possible for the next two weeks to see what you can achieve, but I think you should probably aim more for a B if I am being honest

I got a D
when did u find out about your exams because if you know you're a D grade student and you need an A, why have you left it till 2 weeks before?

Keep having a go at past papers - alternate between doing one in timed conditions (do it like a real exam), and then the other not in timed conditions (spend as much time trying to figure out the answers to the questions, use internet if it helps).

I sometimes spent as much as 3 hours doing one paper and I stuck at questions until I at least figured something out. It helped because it forced me to deeply think about my maths knowledge. I figured out a lot of the answers by sticking at the questions for a long time (sometimes 30 minutes on 1 question) and this deeper processing meant I remembered how to solve questions similar to that.
Looking at the mark scheme helped me see where I went wrong.

I'm not sure if you can get to an A in 2 weeks though - it seems like quite a stretch but try at least!!!!

Be Systematic. Do a past paper. Mark it. Go over it in detail. Keep a record of what topics you are scoring poorly on. Monitor to this so that you see your improvement.
Concentrate work on these weak areas. DO NOT spend time on stuff you can already do.
And be sure to keep up with studiesbeing taught now and work set for that.

I think your best bet is to consider this exam as a "mock". It's almost impossible to go from D to A in two weeks. You will be much better prepared for Summer exams frankly

OP, definitely shoot your shot and give it your best.

However, I don't think it is possible to get an A in 2 weeks. I got a B in my mocks but got an A in the final exam.... though I must say I did work my socks off - I did all the past papers.
