    That really sucks, I really wanted to do it in november too but I obviously couldn't.

    Honestly, if you work really really hard between now and the exam, you won't need to revise maths during the exam season

    (I didn't during exam season, I just made sure that before exams started I understood everything and could answer pretty much any question!)
    you're like the definition of motivation i got a C in language and my teacher wants me to resit but im not happy with it nor am i overly sad about it. not sure if i should resit in jan :/

    Definitely retake it! If you got a C in Y10 that's great and with an extra couple of months of assistance you can easily get a B, perhaps an A or A*?!

    That C may also be inaccurate as English language marking is so inconsistent, and so you could actually be at a B grade!

    that's what put me off, language isnt a subject with right or wrong, the marker you get is down to luck. unfortunately i had a marker who found my story ''disturbing'' . my school made a complaint so they knocked it up from a D to a C lol which is a pass, so that made me more happier than a D of course. i think i will resit it was an exam i thought was quite relaxing - ironically the only exam where i failed miserably in hahahah

    Bump

    express 4x + 3 - 6x - 5
    ------- -------
    2x-1 3x + 1
    as a single fraction in its simplest form

    the ----- means to divide

    i got -3 + 8 in the end, but that's not even a fraction xD help!

    Cool, me too - You should post in the year 11 thread and say hi to the other year 11s- What grade are you aiming for in maths?

    If I may add to what blancados said- exam solutions is a very good website.

    Not sure, but think you should start by cross multiplying the fractions so that they have a common denominator and then simplify from there?

    i'm making this thread in hopes of getting help on questions i find difficult on past papers, i will be bumping this everytime i find a question hard to understand, so please help out if you can my non-calc is on wednesday and calc is on tuesday next week. the faster the help, the better

    the first question is silly but i honestly have no idea what else it wants :/

    ''solve y^2=49''
    you must write down all possible solutions

    it's worth 2 marks, what is the other mark?
    the answer is y=7 y= -7
    because 7x7=49 and (-7)x(-7)=49

    it's ok they aimed me for a B in history and i got A star, so you can definitely make the jump! I like essays subjects, but writing isn't my strong point, so if i can do it, you can too

    Woah! It's this November?! Good luck in achieving an A/A* .I would hate to have it so early, I hope you're prepared. I'm afraid I don't, all my exams are in either May or June except for speaking exams in English and German(I'm on Wjec for German though)
