AS/A Level Maths

A Level Maths is a difficult subject, so unless you're a natural then you need to put in plenty of work. Unlike most subjects there's not that much to learn but you need to practice as many questions as you can. A good revision guide will summarise what you need to know, but focus on solving problems, particularly those on past exam papers. There are also some useful online resources you can make use of.

Each exam board produces a syllabus listing exactly what you need to know to pass the exams. Some students find this useful to use as checklist of what you have revised. Make sure you check with your teacher which exam board and syllabus you are following.
