    Hello everyone, so I'm hoping to get an A in my Maths GCSE (edexcel). I have managed to get A's in mocks but I need to retain that for the exam. Any tips and tricks on how to secure that A or A*? (by the way, I try and do as much past paper questions as I can). I have trouble remembering all the circle theorems and Vector rules, so any tips on remembering them?
    Thank you.

    Depends. Sometimes i get about 80 on one and 65-70 on the other. On average, I usually do better on the calculator. so on average id say between 65 and 70 per paper.

    Make sure you understand all the topics - youtube videos help and feel free to pm me if you want me to go through anything
    Practice Practice Practice! - Crobett maths is really good - try their five a day it'll help you not to forget/ avoid any topics and also helps to highlight some of your worse areas - my maths and bland.in are good (like someone up there has said )
    Finally just all the past papers you can get you're hand on...

    Learn your stuff, if you know your stuff, there's nothing they'll ask that you don't know

    The absolute key is practice practice practice

    Past Papers are your best friend for this season. Another good thing to use is Maths Watch, buy a CD or download the app and get your school to buy a subscription for you (I know a friend who got his maths teacher to pay for the Subscription to the app) MathsWatch is the most wonderful maths revision material ever, it is quite useful and I've been revising with it and I've managed to understand everything within the C grade section of the Maths paper.

    depends when it is - ifyou have enough time go through your textbook and make notes on the key things and then literally just keep on doing past papers.
    the best way to do well at maths is to just keep practicing...good lucK!

    I think you should continue revising industriously as it will definitely benefit you later. There is nothing that will stop you from getting that A* if you practice constantly. You can also follow this thread which I'll be posting continously exam styed questions on and hopefully post model answers too. It will help others conquer their difficulties before and during the exam.

    Past papers, past papers, past papers! Mark them yourself as you can see where the marks are awarded... Seems boring I know but it does the trick☺️
