    I REALLY NEED THIS C IN Maths, I got a D in the november exam, but I didn't really give a crap about it, but I have been revising for 2 weeks and my exam is in June. I am doing revision on mymaths, I go to after school revision classes and I am doing past papers and also I do maths everyday at school and at home, I do after school maths at school then another 3-4 hours at home, on tuesdays I do it twice at school and then at home and for the rest of the week I do it everyday with revision at home!!!

    Is it possible for me to get a C, I got 106 marks it the november exam and it was 124 for a C, I know what I did wrong on that exam and I also know my weakness now.

    BTW I am doing foundation paper.

    So is it possible!?

    Examsolutions.co.uk is a really good website for Maths revision :') Use the videos to help go over topics for your exam, and there are also videos where the person goes over past papers step by step. Also practice LOAAAADS of past papers. If there is a certain area which you struggle with in Maths, just go through past papers from new to old on that topic so you become familiar with how to go about the question

    Ask your teacher for a syllabus and advice on what you can do to get a C. Probably a good way to go about it. I find it useful to know what I've got to do before I can achieve what I want. Good textbooks and past papers! Past papers and mark schemes are amazing.

    Papers, papers, papers and more papers...
    the same/similar questions are constantly repeated but dressed up differently.
    Get as many papers as you can from school and you can download from examboard website - also do papers from other examboards...
    do questions in textbooks.
    Practice and more practice.
    I am speaking from experience... got an E first time on higher then a B second time.
    You still have time... just plod methodically.
    Good luck!

    Past papers and practice makes perfect. One thing I despise my school from doing was putting me on the foundation paper, for maths higher GCSE you usually only need around 60 marks for a C, I found foundation impossible to reach the first two attempts (one in November, one in March) First time I got 1mark of a C, 2nd time I got 4marks of a C, in my opinion if you study hard and do the higher paper you can get a B, but its entirely up to you (then got 116/200 in the higher paper which was a high B)

    Have you tried the Mathswatch CD? There's an app version too; helped me bring my grade up from a C to and A. It's separated into different sections, so you can revise C and below topics with it.

    I always found the CGP revision guides really helpful. Keep going!! Sounds like you have a great attitude and you're working hard. Keep going over past papers and you'll get there
