    Learn the maths then just keep on doing lots of questions

    I found it hard to actually revise for maths because you cant really revise for it

    Hi

    When I was doing my maths GCSE'S I relied heavily on the cgp revision guide (it has some nice challenging questions) and maths watch videos. You can use exam solutions (I wish someone had told me about this website when I was doing GCSE's)

    I got a B first time round, then got an A*.
    Here's how;
    1. Mathswatch. Watch every video and answer the questions
    2. Every single past paper that exists.
    3. Achieve A/A*.

    Past papers are very important but there isn't any real gain if you don't know the maths.
    If you don't understand in class, always ask your teacher to explain it to you at a later date. Use revision guides and watch maths videos (from what I understand mathswatch is the most useful and the most popular).
    Practice each topic properly, i.e. do several questions of each until you are confident, then do past papers.
    Then, when you complete your past paper, you will know what you aren't very good at and need to practice more, instead of confusing that with what you don't know and have never really known in the first place.

    How to get A/A* at gcse edexcel maths A
    I have just got my GCSE results, I did Edexcel Maths and I got an A.
    At the beginning of the year I was predicted a C. What I did was stayed behind a lot with my teacher doing past papers and marking them. A lot of the time near the beginning I was getting D's and C's which I have to say really upset me, however I carried on working my way through them, marking them and really learning about where I was making mistakes and how I could avoid them next time. Maths is defo not my forte, but try to see past papers as something to show you where you are bad at, not good at. Yes, knowing your strong points is useful, but improving is more important! Not going to lie to you, I found this years paper VERY hard, I cried at the end of it! Then I saw it in the news and cried even more!! But just to prove it can be done in a year. If you need any more help feel free to PM me. Good Luck
