New GCSE Maths 9-1 watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello I am a student from year 10 and I am currently going to a state school. I know that this might seem unrealistic but I would like to get a grade 9 for GCSE. I also realised that the top 5% of the country achieve a 9, which would mean that I am competing against people from private schools. Do you think I and many others are at a major disadvantage? Also are there any tips/resources I can access that are similar to private school work that I can use. Thank you for your help, I know there are thousands of others who feel the same way as me.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
