    I think a good idea would be to use the 'a to a*' booster packs on my maths, they give you some more challenging questions to stretch your capabilities.

    Yeah, I've done most of those booster packs now but i'm not sure if it really helped. I did get an A in the mock though. I don't know if doing past papers would be better. A lot of people also use mathswatch but i always find the questions too easy so i'm kind of stuck on what to do next

    Past papers are your best friend!

    I can't stand mymaths ~ it doesn't help me

    If you struggle with the principles, watch a video/irl person explain it to you

    Then just practice ~past papers until you're sick to death of them, and see where you're making the mistakes. Focus on accuracy rather than speed to begin with, avoiding silly mistakes as far as possible

    Good luck

    I think MathsWatch is way better. It helped me get B in maths without teacher. I think mymaths would be beneficial for testing yourself but not for actually learning the topics.

    It can help of course, I personally hated it! But thats simply as I prefer paper and pen.
