Its pointless doing papers if you’re not seeing improvements.

Why is it that you’re getting C’s? Is it due to understanding? Is it because of the maths?

You really need to start asking yourself some questions.

Sorry, but if you're getting a C, I doubt that the understanding is there.

Personally, I'd focus on understanding, less on mocks, and plan for adjustment.

How do you revise? You rewrite notes?

Have you tried active forms of revising like flashcards? You’re just wasting time if you’re going to be stagnant at grade C

So you do know the techniques. I feel like you’re struggling with application. Look, you need to dedicate some time just thinking. I’d suggest you do an open book past paper -> answer the question, but just think about what it’s asking of you first. Then just repeat. How do you make your flashcards? And how do you learn? You need to deeply understand content to apply.

As for maths, what exam board do you do? I’d recommend just doing text book question first. Don’t bother with past papers yet.

I did edexcel too, if you check Haberdashersmaths, if you go to his year 1 playlist, he goes through like each topic and exercise questions in the text book. I found it helpful having concepts explained to me rather than just reading it imo.

Then you could use TLMaths. If you scroll down to his year 1 videos, he basically just teaches you everything fundamentally and why you’re actually learning said thing.

That’s basically both resources I used which got me an A* in the end man. For past papers, I used Naiker Maths. Its got like new specification Questions on there and not just outdated old spec question like the ones you find on Physics and maths tutor (do it after you’ve done all textbook questions/ challenge questions). It’s hard but it’s all about keeping motivated and having the right resources, unfortunately I wasn’t provided with these by anyone. Had to figure it out myself. Good luck though :yy:
