    Okay, I did my GCSE maths in Year 10, in June/July of this year (2015).
    At the beginning of the year I had been working at like a B/C, but my teachers picked me and a few others in my year group to do the exam a year early because they thought we could get good grades. We were told in around March of this year (2015) that we would be doing the exam, so we mainly just did practise papers. We did like all the GCSE (Edexcel) Maths papers we could find, calc and non-calc, and our grades just kept rising. I ended up with an A* in the final exams, and the others who did the exam also got like As and A*s, so I have to say that from personal experience, doing past papers had been the best thing for me (and some of my classmates) to have done.
    Hope this helps and good luck!

    Get your syllabus up for the board you are doing.

    Pick a topic (preferably one you find easier to start with and then build your way up)
    Watch videos on youtube like examsolutions and maths247 etc.

    Then get your hands on every past paper you can and answer every question on whatever topic you picked until you are confident you can do them all.

    Rinse and repeat.

    If you want to improve your maths grade, try to do many past papers however if this doesn't work try to use mathswatch.com. This website has LOADS of work sheets (400 pages roughly) and loads of clear maths tutorials on higher and foundation questions. also try to get a maths revision guides, because the best way to revise for maths is practice so you can adapt the maths in real life question which they may ask you. hope this helps. if you cannot access mathswatch from your school you can go to mathsmadeeasy.com. There are many free worksheets. i will link the C grade but you can change the grade level
