    You've started doing past papers?? I haven't even started Well that is a lie i did some at school for biology and maths Lol .. leaving the past papers till Easter half term
    I've been doing odd ones here and there, but I am going to try and fully commit to them tomorrow and from then on. There is no rush for you to do them though, if you want to wait until Easter then that is fine and don't panic

    Those are ridiculous grades any tips on how to improve my maths, please.
    The best way is past papers and do every kind of question you can find. Even do them from different exam boards because the only difference between them is the layout but the topics are the same. If you need help let me know and good luck

    Don't apologise I couldn't agree with you more.

    And it's not necessarily about just getting through GCSE but if you want to go to college then it is probably better to start developing good habits and techniques now whilst you have time to experiment. But I guess it is up to the individual and everyone learns differently and prefers to do things in different ways.
    That is very true

    I only got a C at gcse and found maths a level really hard so I dropped it now I do art history and can't do architecture at uni. I would love to do architecture but need maths. Should I start with gcse maths or try and do a level again so I can do architecture?

    Well done and good luck for your exams - how do you manage your time at the moment for revision (as in, before the holidays approach)?

    And is 'fluking' exams the best idea? Wouldn't it be better to have a sound understanding of everything so you can apply the knowledge to various istuations, rather than just wait and see?
    Maybe my definition of a fluke is quite different. When I say fluke, I mean only revising for a day or two. Maybe a couple of hours for English because I'm quite good at it and have gotten straight A stars without much effort. At the moment I'm working on my French coursework because that's 60 percent of the course itself and I'm on course for an A star.

    I plan to do as many past papers and notes as possible so that I know the majority of the content, that way I will have less to do on the night before the exams. I particularly want to concentrate on the essay based subjects like Enlgish, Geography and History

    Personally I'd say try A-level again, as you have already passed GCSE at grade C. If you re-took it you would be doing that and A-level on top, so it may just be better to go into A-level, provided you are allowed to. It may be wise to start trying some GCSE papers again just to refresh yourself and rebuild the gap you may have developed.

    (However, I'm only at GCSE so I don't really know what the gap is like from GCSE to A-level)

    That is true about the fluking thing I mean maybe he is really like immensly clever or good at those subjects but why not just revise
    For example : I recently did a Maths Exam got an A* and was my real exam for gcse but we are doing another one in June and I felt like i didnt need to revise until someone told me that i can get a better grade and the more good grades you get the better

    sorry for interrupting i just had to say Lol
    Don't worry folks. I have been revising but not that much. I'm seriously getting my head down now. Thanks for the help and kick up the backside.

    Ah ok fair enough I see what you mean. I struggle revising for English, as it is something I have to do at that moment, and can't really prepare for.

    Good luck

    The gap is quite big at a level I did factorising to begin with and I enjoyed factorising at gcse but at a level it was with surds which I found really difficult. Thanks for the advice and good luck with your gcse. Do you know what you'd like to study at university?
