    I've been moving schools around for a long time due to my parents' jobs and my Maths knowledge (due to different school systems and ways of doing things) has suffered- but now I have to revise and pass my N5 exams coming up!
    I've been trying to revise but i'm getting disheartened at how much I just don't understand at all, and I'm also pretty worried that it's too late to pretty much learn 75% of the course anew. I really don't want to fail my exams (and who does? :P) and I was wondering if anyone's been in a similar situation and has any tips?

    Talk to your teachers. I think its oiubrkess sitting an exam when you realistically know you will fail. See if you cna have a deferment till the resits if you are genuinely that far behind and its no just exam nerves.

    The alternative if you cna afford it is to get a home tutor.
