Also, for A Math, you can read up on calculus which will be taught next year. The notes: 
- 2015 AM Calculus - Differentiation & applications

Do the papers periodically to keep your memory fresh. My suggestion is 1 E Math paper and 1 A Math paper each week. For those who need topical revision, re do all the assignments we did this year. Then attempt the papers as a test. You are encouraged to do all papers. 

WHAT IS COMPULSORY?
You are expected to complete at least 1 school for each math. Do on foolscap, check solutions and do corrections. Then submit to your math teachers to check in 2016. 
My suggestion is to at least complete the following as they have answers for you to mark:
