    Hello, I will be sitting an entrance mathematics exams for sixth form I am currently working at about a B I am doing the new maths 1-9 spec.Any tips how to improve yourself I have this workbook and textbook,past papers I do them but is it enough and how can I stay extremely motivated over the summer to continue practicing maths?

    There are many options, choose what works for you:

    MathsWatch if your school pays for that or ExamSolutions GCSE - these videos are really helpful and have helped me in the past to stay motivated. If you don't understand how to do something you can just watch a video showing you how. And if you don't like them, try Mr Hegarty Maths videos on YouTube

    Do all the questions from the textbook/workbook and just keep doing them until you start getting all of them right

    Look for worksheets online if you run out of questions from the book

    But basically, whatever you do, just make sure that you practice answering questions correctly because that is the most important thing

    To help me stay motivated for A Level Maths I have drawn up a kind of checklist with tick boxes. So essentially, I have divided up all the topics in Maths and my aim is to tick off at least 2 topics everyday. That way, I can track my progress and won't fall behind
