    I got 5A's and 5A*'s in my exams. I studied really hard for my exams, particularly maths yet I only got an A. I find my maths quite hard at the moment and I'm worried about starting further maths. Does anyone have any advice or tips?

    Everything gets easier with practice and familiarity, but this is especially true of maths. If you are struggling with certain areas, then you just need to do a load of textbook questions until it becomes familiar and ingrained into your mind.

    No I have not done them yet. In my school ,instead of doing some of our GCSEs in 4th and the rest in 5th year, we do all of them in 5th year. So the exams I did this year were simply mocks
