    The best book will depend on your examination board. However, you should definitely use this website to help you: http://www.examsolutions.net/

    If you are doing Edexcel, then I would get this Edexcel GCSE Higher Revision Guide and Workbook. They are what I am working from and like you, I am hoping for an A* this November

    I use that for last minute (or should I say final week) revision for Maths mocks. The mock I did last week (mocks that go toward Sixth Form applications at my school) went great and I got an A*, I was the only one in my class

    Whilst it does give you most of the content you need for exams it wont give you everything (naturally you can't fit a 2 year course into a week) so it's best to use it in conjunction with past papers and an exam board-specific revision guide (best to get one soon and use it for 2-3 weeks before switching to the Maths to A* book). Good luck!

    Er, no!

    November and June exams will be staying - it's a school's choice if they decide not to put candidates in for those exams
