    Thanks I certainly will keep my eyes peeled on the website, as these are great sources of revision, to help identify your weaker areas!

    so if you try and use them effectively- you can achieve the grade you deserve

    Any advice for how to remember the basic stuff? Maths is my worst subject (I'm doing higher and I'm in second set but trust me, I'm bad) but I always find that the B/A stuff is easier for me than the E/D/C stuff. I only ever get a C on tests (most of the time I only just scrape it) because I panic and my mind goes blank and I literally can't remember it.
    Normally, if I know how to do something, I can do it on practice questions in class but when it comes to exams I just cant do it. Because all the wordings and numbers have changed I suppose.
    It's embarrassing but I hardly even know my times tables because I find it so hard to remember, yet I can do algebra/trig/pythag easy.

    My brain is just very English orientated I guess, I'm a solid A student in subjects that involve essay writing etc. But give me a maths exam and it feels like the end of the world.

    Any advice would be amazing? Thanks.

    :hi::hi::hi::hi:Hey:hi::hi::hi::hi:

    This is GCSE Maths thread- for helping out each other OR you can ask me for any help you need...
    I have many resources if you want any feel free to ask me
    Also this thread applies to all the exam board because pretty much all the exam boards have the same topic (it's just the way the structure set up in the exam is different)
    Recently i have seen so many threads on maths asking for help and they all were repeated... :clap2::clap2::clap2:
    SO i think in this thread you can ask me any help you want (higher or foundation) :yeah:
    so here are some tips and helpful websites with resources that can help you to achieve the best grades you deserve
    1- If you don't understand something, focus on mastering that topic before moving on to the next topic.
    2- Work example problems and check your answers to gain practice with every lesson.
    3- When beginning to work a Math problem, do not "map out a path from problem-to-answer" in your head before writing anything down.
    4- When you study and do homework, try to find a quiet place to do it.
    5- If someone asks you for help, try to explain the topic to them as best you can.
    Ask your teacher to help you out
    Watch videos on youtube, there are many youtubers and lessons you can look for
    PASTPAEPRS is MUST
    here is a website link you may find it helpful
    http://www.themathsteacher.com - this link has foudation and higher topics + videos
    This one, this website has pastpapers for Edexcel and AQA exam board and also has the topics with the videos: http://www.suffolkmaths.co.uk/pages/...20Revision.htm - topics and Videos and more links of other websites + pastpapers
    another useful one - http://www.examsolutions.net/
    Youtube channels

    https://www.youtube.com/user/jayates79
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCB...DRp9NoSgnkUh7w
    And many more
    Or you can just look up for a topic on youtube and u will find many videos just on one topic
    Me personally don't like mymaths even many teacher says do mymaths- but the reason i don't like is because, they are not in an exam structure and i prefer doing actual past paper is the best method to do and you will understand the struture too... believe me the same question comes in the exam everytime, they just changed the numbers
    I have also attached two documents that may help you with the topics
    I will upload the 2015 June and November Exam papers (edexcel) soon when they are release - i do have them but i am not allowed to share
    Also for the new spec 9-1 grades- this link is the sample paper for maths http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...s-2015-SAM.pdf
    Good luck :goodluck:

    I'm doing AQA how would you revise for this?
    maths isn't different... the style of the questions maybe but other than that its exactly the same...
    just ensure that you know all the content and do exam questions on each topic
