    Well basically my story begins with me retaking my GCSE Maths and as part of my conditional offer I must!! achieve at least a c grade. However, can I still revise in this short-period of time (2months till exam) and achieve a C grade? Is it doable? Where should I start? The exam board is Edexcel and the syllabus for GCSE Maths has changed right?. Can someone help me out please.

    Thanks a lot.

    Do a couple of papers, find where your gaps are, buy revision guide, learn gaps, do more papers, find gaps etc. etc. etc.

    How doable it is depends on how good you are at maths, and how far away from a C you are already.

    Maths is surely the easiest subject; which means hopefully you well get that C grade. You should do some past papers as thats probably the best option, to see what topics you know and dont know.
    Good Luck.

    Past Papers are the way forward. To start with do one of each (I assume there's 2-calculator and non-calculator) and see where your gaps are. Try to sort these issues, then try more papers. The more papers you do, the more you'll be aware of where you have issues, and the more you'll recognise the typical types of questions. Good Luck
