I have a maths a level test on Tuesday on the topics 7-9 on pure and 4 and 5 for mechanics. I thought I should go over the year 12 topics that can come up so I’ve done logs and differentiation year 12 and now I’m doing parametric equations and then the mixed questions for all the topics. I’m planning on watching videos and then after doing the mixed exercises going into past paper questions hopefully on Sunday and on Monday I can ask my teacher on any questions I don’t get. Does this seem like a reasonable plan to achieve an A or is there anything else I could do to improve my grade in such a short time?

Ok you have 2 days, you cannot stop working - you can't afford to do that!
Of course, take mini--breaks, but that's about it. Only when you've done your exam, then breathe.

Ok, I've compiled a little crash-course for your topics, purely based on examsolutions.net (shoutout Shaun), along with your Edexcel Textbook. I'm also assuming you have pretty much full knowledge (more or less) of these topics, if you're going for the grade A/A*.

Each topic has mixed exercises (from your textbook), full, step-by-step solutions (from SolutionBank, no less), sub-topic tutorials (short vids explaining a subtopic from each chapter) and some more practice based on the same idea, and that's about it.

Also, I'm pretty sure all the solutions for the 'more practice' - [sub-topic based exam questions] are all explained in a small 1-2 min video, making life easier to deal with.

Furthermore,remember the website Geogebra has useful visualisations of how graphs look (this should only be used to check your answer, or purely for yourself, certaintly not while attempting questions). Similarly, Cymath simplifies and solves equations, its bascially a scientific calculator with step-by-step answers (no use using it for questions, remember!)

I recommend doing the exam-practice from exam solutions, then go through the solutions - if you know a topic already, move on (there's a lot of content). Keep going until you have completed a chapter worth of questions, then move to chapter 2 - differentiation, etc.

Then, either move on to chapter 2, or complete the mixed exercises for chapter 1, then mark it, only then move to chapter 2 (whatever suits you best)
I would say good luck, but you can't rely on that right now

Work hard and don't stop!
