    Is it gcse or as level? You may want to buy a revision book for the exam board the exam will be under. And when youve fully revised do past papers

    If you have problems with math, first and foremost you have to find out when you stopped understanding it!

    Take your old textbooks and try solving problems from when you were 10, 11, 12... And if come across a problem you can't solve, study the topic. In my experience, people usually don't understand high school level math just because they didn't get one tiny teeny concept when they were younger.

    If you'd like, PM me, I can try to help you with it

    You need to start at the beginning

    If you are getting E grades then there is some really basic maths that you have not understood/forgotten

    I would suggest getting some KS2 and then KS3 workbooks - perhaps use BBC bitesize to help with improved understanding

    When you feel that you can confidently get a 4/5 at KS2 and a 5/6 at KS3 then look at a Foundation GCSE paper to see how you feel about that

    This should be enough - aim for about an hour of maths a day during the break if you feel this is do-able - you need to start Year 11 feeling confident with the basics rather than worrying about the actual GCSE papers yet
