I am a student currently in Year 12 doing A levels in Maths, Physics and Further Maths. I am doing the entire maths a level in year 12 and the entire further maths a level in year 13. However, as exams are now cancelled, my maths A level will now be based on teacher predicted grades. I want to go to Imperial or UCL to do computer science, and they require an A star in Maths. I really want to prove that I am an A star student to the department, so can anyone give me any tips on how to work towards an A star. I cannot afford to get anything below an A star. Thanks.

Just something to note, you're actually not in too bad of a position, as if you aren't able to get a Teacher Assessed Grade of A*, you can always just sit the exam during Year 13. Obviously, this isn't ideal, but also you will be 'revising' a lot of the A-level maths content when doing Further anyway.

Yh I understand what you are saying but getting an A star now would be so ideal, I have improved massively from the beginning of the term but my progress is not at an A star yet. Getting an A star now would be so beneficial, as Further Maths Is extremely tough and will require a lot of hard work, as well as physics.
