use flashcards to memorise equations, and test yourself every morning or night (personal preference, but once a day), do equations like sohcahtoa, the cosine rule, area of shapes etc (without these u wont be able to do the question, at least if u know the equation and u write it down you'll get a mark). use mathswatch (if ur school does it), hegarty maths and use youtube videos if you don't understand something.

do past papers and exam questions, they repeat some questions sometimes and if you've practiced it before then you'll be good at it

What do you mean by 'mature student' lmao, and you find the videos on youtube. Just search up the topic you're struggling with and something is guaranteed to come up.

Let me know if you got differently

Furthermore for the reasoning of the stem leaf graph what did you put ? I put because the boys have a wider spread in terms of data ( height in cm)
