    I'd suggest that you resd about a particular topic in your GCSE Revision Guide and then practice answering questions from your testbooks and past examination papers.

    write out your own questions and copy out notes on formulas, practice papers to get use to exam technique.

    Do practice papers, then wherever you made a mistake, go back and revise that topic. Work on your worst areas, and try to spot similar questions that they ask in past papers, make sure you can do those.

    The very best way to revise Maths is to use Past Papers. Seeing as we have done the non-calc paper already, this is what you should do:

    1. Find out what was on the non-calc.
    2. Make a list of things which haven't come up.
    3. Add to that list the basic things which ALWAYS come up on calc, ie. trig, sin/cos rules, stats etc.
    4. Revise that list quickly using a revision guide.
    5. Then for the majority of the time, focus on working through the exams, as this is the most indiciative of what you will get. (Try to focus on the part of the text which you will struggle at. So if ur aiming for a A* - the questions at the end. A - maybe the questions just b4 the end, and so on. )

    Devising a strategy to work through this exam is really best way through them, becuase they are aimed at such a huge spectrum of grades.

    Other than that, unlike other sciences, you can't really revise, as maths is about application and experience more than knowledge gathering.

    Hope that helps,

    i find it good to go over past exam papers you have done e.g. mock papers, and have been marked. then go over the ones you got wrong.

    I always have problems revising maths too I find it helps to find out your weak areas, then go through all the practice papers you have just doing those topics eg. if you're bad a trig, do all the trig q's, then go through again with a different topic - good luck

    Yep, practise papers are the best way to revise. You can get some off the exam board websites:
