    I have always been getting a B grade in maths and i want to achieve an A in my final exam. What do you suggest i do? (can you please be specific when answering for example avoid saying "revise more hours" any help is appreciated thanks.

    Maths is all about the practice of questions, when you revise a topic make sure to complete questions on it to make sure you understand. Then once you come back to revise another day go back to them questions to make sure that you can answer them correctly before carrying on with a new topic.

    Thanks for replying and i will make sure i do that next time i revise maths.

    Focus on mainly A and A* level, if you want an A.

    I moved form like a low C to a high B in a month.
    I use a mathswatch CD and do loads of past paper questions.

    This website is basically 5 questions a day for foundation and higher, try and do this atleast three times a week. (need to start doing that).

    Ive never used this but some1 said HEGARTYMATHS is really good, its video tutorials.

    And basically do loads of A and A* level questions.

    Do maths atleast two to three times every week.


    If you're getting B's in GCSE Maths that probably means that you simply don't know how to answer a significant portion of the questions (unless you are making lots and lots of mistakes).

    First, make sure you understand how to answer all the potential questions (you can use www.examsolutions.net for this), then do all the past papers.
