How possible is this? i got an 8 in gcse math and i enjoy maths (maybe not applied side lol) Should i also revise things outside the textbooks to get a better understanding of things? or should i just stick to the content in the textbook onlly. Also btw im a private candidate

Wait, you want to take your A-level in year 12 or you just want to get an A* in your end of year test going into year 2?

Both are easily feasible with an 8. The only problem is probably the applied side as it's 50% of your grade. It is very achievable if you put effort in.

Im currently also in y12 i also got an 8, 7 marks of a 9 and 3 marks of a 9 in gcse further. I so far have done multiple AS past papers for the edexcel exam board and if i achieved the same % of marks in both mech and stats I would achieve an A, (there is no A* in AS papers btw) in the AS papers my highest score being 73/100 in the pure papers just by watching TL A level maths and doing the questions on the videos. Year 12 is fairly easy I have done some year 13 content by accident because I didn't believe year 12 pure was that easy i thought i was still doing year 12 content.

You can nail the exams im sure if you just put in some hours tbh you could learn all of A level maths during the halloween holiday. His playlist for all of a level maths is 103 hours so 15 hours a day is doable if you wish too ofc.

Yee nicee pure maths is indeed fire

Logs are pretty nice i pretty much have learnt all of pure maths just gotta do logs equations like and decay and growth and vectors but then im finished

In IAL as the inaugural cohort of my school, came off a 9 (191/200) in IGCSE Maths.

I took P1, P2 and S1 in October 2020 (postponed from June). I obtained 93/100, 98/100 and 100/100. S1's curve was crazy as that was the hardest ever exam.

Then in January 2021, I took P3 and M1, obtaining 84/100 and 85/100. I decided to do P3 again with CAGs in June 2021.

I obtained 95/100 and 85/100 in P3 and P4 respectively. With a combined 180 in P3 and P4, plus a total score of 556, I was able to get an A*.
