    Adeen Atif , Ayesha asif
    Both of you are good at maths, right?
    Can you tell me what should I do for getting a* in it
    My paper is on 31st may :p
    I have done only 3 year papers
    The problem is , I fail to understand how questions need to be attempted
    and so I get very bad marks..
    So, how should I revise concepts
    And improve in math :(

    I do know how to prepare for school exams of math but for IGCSE I havent even solved 1 past paper
    And I really wish I could help you but the pattern of Igcse exam is still not completely elucidated to me:(and I dont want to misguide you
    But what I can tell you is that,Math is all about practice,and Well, Why do I love math? Because I solve the equations like they are a puzzle or game,So use my strategy, it greatly helps;)

    Firstly,practice is the best thing you can do to get good marks in math and make sure that you understand everything before opening any past paper.
    Because solving past paper while not understanding something will do nothing other than waste your time.
    And dont pressure yourself,Even if you achieve bad grades it wont be the end of the world (But that doesnt mean you dont focus,Im not tryna discourage you), Just go and give the exam with complete peace of mind and I guarantee you, you'll perform great:)
    And about failing to understand how questions need to be attempted,I saw a video on youtube and the person in that video told about resources to print which will elucidate how the questions papers need to be attempted aka what the examiner wants from us the link is:
    Well then..I Hope I helped you Gud luck for the preparation;)

    Yes, but I am good at vectors, functions, sequences, matrices and transformations, trigonometry, sets, geometry, probability and statistics ONLY

    An average student who gets an A* in maths practices atleast 6- 10 yrs of past papers before sitting. It makes one capable of tackling the pressure and attempting all the new and weird ques they give so that will also increase your confidence

    So as Adeen said …to practice, and I cannot explain any better and nicely than what she said, so practice that’s one important thing , then test yourself to see where you stand but do that after you think all the doubts and confusions regarding the concepts are clear. Note down all the mistakes u made in the paper and make sure to.. not repeat them. Keep on asking ques until u clearly get answers to all your questions. with time you will get what the ques asks u to do, manage your time effectively and u will have to put in a lot of effort and a tremendous amount of work still awaits you and keeping ure expectations low will also help and do go through the mark scheme carefully

    Who do u blame now for getting those bad marks …yourself, CIE, or your teacher/tutor ? and what are the highest marks that u scored up till now

    I must say now … that u should ask yourself how to improve in maths and for that matter , an improvement in anything of any type and any sort … because if there is anyone who knows your problems/confusions and your faults and flaws then it is only you . so at the end the answer to the solutions lies with you since you, know urself better how to fix those problems and upgrade the potential which had always been in you ….may Allah’s help be with you always and may He sooth your heart if ever you get frustrated.( coz maths is just another name of frustration) .Ameen

    I just think i didnt write enough in the 6 mark ques...otherwise i loved the paper and our variant was better and easier than v2...
    there wasn't a single graph that we had to describe and there were no ques from the harder topics
    and i finished the exam like 15 mins before so got time to recheck and it was all good for others too
