    I've basically got yr 11 mocks coming up at the end of November/beginning of December and stressing out as the mocks determine whether im doing foundation or higher tier. In my recent non calculator paper I got a D but one mark away from a C. I know ive done extremely bad at it and need to study really hard to get a B in this mock. Do you have any study tips or revision websites, all answers would be much appreciated. My exam board for maths is Edexcel.

    Make sure you understand the material, keep trying the questions, whenever you have a certain type of question you consistently cannot do, do not brush it aside, look up that topic, revise it, ask questions on TSR till you can do all such questions that require that technique/topics/whatever. Rinse and repeat. Go through a paper and prioritise the topics that you need to do this for, red for urgent, or use exclamation marks, etc...

    Read your textbook/notes, make sure you understand the nuances of the topics, google something if you don't understand, don't just say "I don't understand, but it's such a small thing and it's inconsequential" - google, use videos, come on TSR and ask for help, etc...

So study with short notes mind maps and flash cards ! Yu can find everything on youtube !

    I'm assuming ure doing gcse maths?
    I found the edexcel gcse maths official revision guide sooo helpful it came with a practise book too and it's not expensive
    The book was nice and colorful not boring
    Each topic was covered each topic over 1 page with precise examples showing the exact working that gets you the marks and types of questions that will come up to do with that topic and questions to try at the end
    Found it very clear and easy to follow it really helped me when I was struggling with maths last minute towards the exam time.

    This is the book I'm talking about
    Would definately recommend the workbook with it

    I revise by going on youtube (along with my revision book i got from whsmith, not sure if they have one for exdecel cos mine is wjec), this is the formula search i always put into youtube search:

    ________ gcse

    the blank bit is the topic of maths you want to go over, gcse is there to filter out other level of maths and what not. they're really helpful, one topic can last 2 minutes and it just clicks straight away in your head after watching it. other videos last 20 minutes, however these vids includes practise questions in which the teacher in it will go through with you AFTER teaching you the topic at the beginning, if u only want the rules then u can watch the first 5 minutes!

    heres one example video:
