    Hi
    I was wondering how i could get a B in gcse maths as it is not my strongest subject. I am currently aimed for a c but I really want to get a minimum of a B grade. I have always struggled with maths and i always seem to forget everything after learning it. Any advice would be fantastic.
    Thank you

    As many past papers as you can, review them after and do other practice questions on the topics you find hardest. Short, frequent revision sessions and target a different topic every session.

    Doing the past papers from the last 5 years or so will help you. You could then mark your paper using the mark scheme, and then see how to answer the questions you got wrong. That's how I revised for GCSE maths.

    Understand what you are doing thoroughly and make sure your basics are solid. Do as many questions as you can physically manage, constantly checking over the answers spotting errors in your working where you have gone wrong. Make sure your algebra is good. The main goal is not to give up and keep trying, not being satisfied with getting an answer wrong until you know why and keep practicing.
