    Hey, I'm stuck on what to do for my maths revision. My exam is a week next Monday, and everyday I do nothing feels like a waste. I've done all the past papers, all the Solomon papers and I even did all the last 3 questions of the past papers again. I'm really stuck what to do, help?

    Well how are you doing on the papers?
    If you're doing well, then stop worrying.
    If you're not doing well then go over problematic areas with your textbook, mymaths, examsolutions etc.

    Examsolutions is the best place! Go over some of the revision videos, worked exam solutions and then attempt another past paper. This is the method I followed to self-teach myself C1-3,S1 and (learning) S2:

    Watch the video/s under the topic you want to learn about/revise -> Do a past paper -> Watch the worked exam solutions and see where you went wrong -> attempt the paper again and keep doing this until you achieve 75/75. If you keep trying again-and-again then the likelihood of the method storing in your mind is very high.

    Hope that helps.

    The mistakes I tend to make now are arithmetic ones e.g 3-2=5 and I usually can never do 1 markers XD the other problem I have is triangles, so I might work on that. I don't know, I might wander about on my maths for a while. Thanks

    There are some solomon worksheets you can do on each topic if you can locate those. Some of the later questions in each section are harder than usual.

    Try the extension questions in any textbooks you have

    I have done some revision videos for my pupils below:

    Feel free to use them.
