    I am sitting that exam too.

    A really good way to revise is doing the all the past papers and going over them. If you don't know how to do something you can just search on youtube, and there's most likely going to be good videos explaining how to do it. Hope this helps

    Hey I'm doing the exams as well, feel free to message me about anything! Im feeling quite confident about it. Just remember its all the same skills as normal gcse maths (as well as the new topics) but the questions (style especially) are quite different. So familiarise yourself with their style/type of questions they ask and just revise as normal i.e. learn all the topics; algebra,trigonometry etc as usual.
    After you do past papers you realise that each paper is so similar from every other one.

    Take a break when you reach halfway through the paper. But like a 5 minute break

    I would spend 1-2 hours a day, and the whole weekend before the exam and take 15mins break in between to eat and relax

    Having seen past papers, yes. But just harder to get your head around, and its only hard because they ask different types of questions that we might not be familiar with, other than that its pretty much equal. Plus the grade boundaries tend to be slightly lower!
