    I've always be ABSOLUTELY Terrible at Maths and now that you have to Get a C at GCSE or you have to do the course again at college .anyway in my YR 11 Mock I got an E and when I spoke to my maths teacher she said she thinks I could get a C if I continue to work hard and revise ( like I always do ) . My question is it possible to go from an E to a C Before the real exams in May / June

    Yes, it is very possible. One person I knew from school who was awful at every subject worked really hard and ended up getting a C in maths. The key to GCSE maths is to practice and practice until you know the methods by heart. Then all the questions start to seem familiar, even if you have never seen them before. It can mean a lot of work, but it will get you the grade C, so at least it pays off.

    I know a guy that got from a U to a B after doing a few weeks revision and he went to one of the worst schools in the country.

    You pretty much need 30 marks on each maths paper for a C - 60 marks out of 200. Those two exams determine your final grade and you've got plenty of time to revise. Make sure you understand the key concepts (division methods etc). Perhaps practice some past papers with your teacher so they can identify which areas you need help in. That's what teachers are there for! Learn which revision technique is most beneficial to you and squeeze in perhaps an extra two hours of maths a week - 1 lunchtime and 1 after school. It will be really beneficial as we have over 14 weeks until our exams - that's an extra 28 hours of maths. You'll do fine.

    Just ignore the clown who contributed around zero with the comment gcse, piss easy. Work hard and it ll be fine. If it means anything, I'm doing a level math, level 3 math, but also having to do gcse math. I find the gcse math hardest because its not real math and most of the questions are nearer to a reading/ English exam.
