    hey

    im currently at this moment revising linear graphs and equations and finding it quite easy if im honest.

    really havent done loads of revision for it, just the odd hour every few days cos of my a-levels (bio, hist)

    however, theres still like 9 weeks until the first of the papers? so hopefully my odd hour of revision every few days can secure me a B at least haha .

    hows revision going for u?
    are u using the collins revision GCSE maths guide? (the red cover) by any chance?

    I used mathswatch and did about 10 past papers for calculator paper and 10 for non-calc, then used mark schemes to look over my mistakes

    bbc bitesize is useful sometimes aswell but I wouldn't rely just on that
