    How do people revise? Because I've just been doing past papers in class (cause we're forced lol) but I can't seem to revise at home but that's probably because I don't know what to revise. It's probably too late now though cause the exams tomorrow
    Past papers are a good way of revising as it helps you get an idea of what type of questions that will be on the real paper. Unfortunately, with the exam being tomorrow morning that means you only have now til then to revise (which isn't a lot) but I advise you do the following:
    - Watch YouTube videos of any topics you're not particularly confident in
    - Use a revision guide or textbook (if you have one) they usually have practice questions with answers at the back of the book like the example below
    - Write out formulae which will not be on the formulae sheet:
    Volume of cuboid = length x width x height
    Volume of cylinder = Pi x radius² x height
    Volume of pyramid = 1/3 x area of base x vertical height
    and so on...
    - Answer past-exam questions or exam style questions. I personally like to use corbett maths as it has the answers with the questions on the website (https://corbettmaths.com/revision/practice-questions/) and mathsmadeeasy (http://www.mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/gcsem...s-AB-grade.htm) and mathsgenie (http://www.mathsgenie.co.uk/grade2.html). Mathsgenie and Corbettmaths have the answers, however I don't think mathsmadeeasy have answers.
    - Use flashcards (Quizlet and getrevising are good for these!) and ask a friend or family member to help you revise these

    Good luck and try not to stress, remember to think positive and just revise as much as you can

    Thanks for the tips I know those equations so that's nothing to worry about.

    I just did the november 2015 paper at home after doing it in nov and getting 49/100. I got 78/100. An A grade is looking great and if i am lucky maybe an A* as i am better at calculator. Got a c last summer and a B (on the boundary) in nov.

    I remember the last year one. 155 was an A* (really low). I reckon this years will be around 160-162 for A*

    An A would be at least 130, so it would be around 130-133
