Wait 13 days, what's your exam board? I would honestly advise grinding past papers. Like there's really not much in the way of content for maths, and many of the more complex formulas are provided in the formula booklet if you forget them anyway. Exposing yourself to more questions and possible variations is the best idea. Just do a bunch of questions for each topic in maths (at least just the ones you struggle in), then you can leave time to properly revise for your other subjects that are probably more content heavy. Just my advice.

instead of doing past papers, I would suggest that you get a very clear understanding of the concept first. in my opinion, maths past papers are useless if you don't understand the concept, as the questions this year could be very different to the questions last year. I would say watch YouTube videos on each of the topics. Ive found this YouTube channel very helpful: "zainematics", if you can understand Urdu, and even if you can't, he is still extremely helpful. i wish you all the best :smile:
