recapping key skills for maths, but the PPQs make that completely irrelevant?

basically the title, I spent this entire week recapping all of the core skills for AS level maths, I just tried the 2018 AS paper 1, and I cannot answer a single question on it because I just cant do long questions for some reason?

as my time is severly running out; I really dont know what to do other than memorize super specific questions if theres a chance those topics come up yearly
help would be greatly appreciated :/

Ah I see. Would 100% recommend bicen maths on youtube to cover the content if you’re completely stumped on all the questions in the paper.

It may be a bit time consuming but all his videos are extremely detailed and well organized and specific to edexcel. And then just doing some of the exercises in the textbook and then re-attempting the paper again. Hope this helps! 😃

He also has videos for stats and mechanics if ur going to need it in the future haha
