    Literally all you can do is practice! Do a ton of past papers, maybe you could ask for your teacher for some? If you don't understand a question then you can look for the topic on MathsWatch, its very helpful! Best of luck, hope you get a C!

    Make sure you do the ones you find hardest first and write steps on getting the answer! I know Maths can be hard sometimes so try your best

    keep practicing...
    Maths is a subject you cant revise...
    1) work through the textbook Qs so you are aware of how to do all the different types of calculations. once you feel confident with each topic and you have practiced enough then approach an exam paper.

    2) if it is possible, do it under timed conditions, like a proper exam.

    3) once completed, check with a mark scheme or get someone to mark it for you.

    4) having done that, notify the mistake you are making and over the topic again.

    keep practicing exam papers and quesions. its the best way to approach maths.
    believe in yourself and say you can do it...

    Good luck and all the best

    Hey! Don't panic! For months I was a D grade in Maths however I stumbled across a guy on Youtube under the channel called KESHMATHS and he goes through the paper showing you how to do it. Sounds simple right? Well now I'm a high B grade hoping to achieve an A! It really works just do a lot of them. His techniques really stayed in my head.

    good luck!
