Mathematics is not HARD/CHALLENGING all you need to do is just,
1. Ensure that you retain all you can in class.
2. Remember the formula .
3. Fellow the steps.
4. Pratise.
5. Work on the difficult tops you have challenge with more.

Amen with christ we can do all things, what may seem impossible for men is possible in the sight of god.

Mathematics is not hard but it is indeed challenging. Went to do it for the first time this year. I found a book a month before the exams and followed the examples in it. I was so unsure on the day of d exam and wanted to cancel that. However I still went to do he exam, did not complete paper two and was surprised that I got a 3. But I am going to do it again in Jan because I told myself if I can get a 3 wihought much practice then I can get a 2 his time around.

mathematics is a very complicated subject but if you really put your mind to it trust me you'll surely get to understand it.
