Hiya all, fresh A-Level student here studying Maths, got an 8 in my igcse but now struggling with maths because one out of two of my maths teachers isn't great. I need to get an A* to get into the unis of my choice, i've been following the imperialx a-level course individually in my free time but I've found that extracurriculars and cadets have started eating into my time, how much of an impact do you think this'll have on my final maths grade?
