    Hello everyone!

    I have my Maths GCSE exams on Tuesday 11th June 2013 and Friday 14th June 2013. I am doing a Linear Higher tier paper and I have no chance to retake so I really need to do well I'm predicted an A* and I would love to achieve this! What are your best tips for the exam or for revision and how do you normally revise? My method at the moment is going through past papers, circling the questions I am stuck on, then marking them and going through the questions I didn't understand and the questions I got wrong!

    Thank you! I appreciate all your tips and advice

    Do as much practice as you possibly can and understand the content. Past papers are helpful

    I joke lol just do past papers and which ever questions you don't understand/get wrong learn them again and then keep doing past papers until you get full marks. Also if you have a revision book they most likely have revision exercises on each topic so try to do all of them so you're confident with anything that comes up. Good luck I'm sure you will get that A*.
