    I flopped my GCSE Maths and I'm now retaking Unit 2 and Unit 3 in June, but I need to practically learn it all again, so does anyone have any good websites for Edexcel GCSE Maths?

    Not many websites helped me. I used a program called Mathswatch which was a huge help.

    From someone who retook their Maths exam 3 times to get an A. This is my advice:

    Make sure you know the ALL the content. One of my biggest problems was going into class and the teacher telling us we already knew everything. And when we suggested a topic it was never done in depth. This is the key to it. Making sure you know all the content.
    The next step is doing past papers. However have your school or do you have any other questions you could answer? These are specific questions on specific topics. Maybe from a revision guide or something. I'd recommend them as well as they will make you realise if you understand a topic or not.

    I'm not sure what exam you're specifically taking. But I did AQA Maths then changed to Edexcel Linear. As Linear was only one paper there was more to remember but the questions weren't as hard. On the other hand AQA was less to remember but more challenging. You can't win really. But I'd recommend doing AQA past papers if you finish all of yours. Only because I found that I knew the answers to the past papers before I'd even done the question, that's how much I knew the past papers.

    Hope this helps. Any more questions feel free to message me.

    Our teacher subscribed to a site called Manga High, We're on OCR but the site caters for all boards. The site is free and is actually quite fun. I'm targeted an A but currently on an A* and it has been a great help to me for revision.

    I got 98.5% in GCSE Maths. Just buy a textbook and work through the questions. You can do past papers if you want but I didn't.

    No, I haven't got any questions to answer, I'm just going to work my way through every past paper and learn all the content whilst going through. And, I'm retaking two modules on the Edexcel Modular B series

    Ask your teacher to get some papers from the zigzag education website. It costs money though.

    Ooh. I'd really reccommend getting CGP books - they're excellent: I used a CGP guide for all three units and came out with a B. If not, try and get a GCSE textbook from your school
