    I have a maths tutor and I revise as much I can, can anyone suggest some topics that will help me get a C/B for my re take (I really need to pass), or if anyone can predict what's going to be on the June 2015 paper

    Do lots of textbook questions and past paper questions.

    If you need it for a university offer, I would suggest getting A-level grades much higher than the offer and asking the uni if they will accept you without it just in case.

    You can never predict exactly what is going to be in the exam but definitely go over the past papers. Sometimes they re-use the same/similar questions. As you already have a maths tutor, ask your tutor to explain anything that you don't understand, no matter how silly it sounds. Make sure you now how to apply formulas and re-arrange them. Remember to stay positive - think about how amazing you will feel when you actually pass the exam

    I have a friend who's in a similar situation as you. He decided to do his maths, chem, bio and phys GCSE's this yr about a month ago, since then he's been self studying with some resources that i suggested to him and mainly textbooks which he bought, he's aiming to get A*s (god willing). This thread was a couple months back so if you're still there and want any tips, just reply bk! Btw I'm doing a-levels in maths, chem and bio.
