    Does anybody know the best way to basically teach myself maths for my QTS tests? I have literally no idea when it comes to maths. I have the Mark Pattemore book which isn't really helping as the stuff its showing me I've had to go and teach myself through websites because it doesn't teach me- its just questions. I'm really worried as I desperately want to be a teacher. I done an online test from the dfe website and got 42% which was really good for me as I am that bad and most of that was guessing.

    the university that I go to now offered sessions for free that would help people pass these sort of tests so look into universities around you and see if they offer the same. Or if you're still at high school/college see if some teachers will help you out. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
