    Is there any way of making this subject easy to learn? I'm doing a self teaching course basically and it's quite hard to be honest. I really need good grades in this subject particularly. How do I get A A*? Help would be greatly appreciated!

    Are there any specific topics you are finding difficult? Which exam board are you studying?

    There are some great websites which will help alongside past papers. You do need to have a fair grasp of topics before you tackle past papers.

    Statistics, geometry and algebra at the moment. I'm with Edexcel. Do you happen to know the websites that will help with the past papers? Thanks

    Correct me if I'm wrong but when I was doing my gcse s (7 years back) we had this big ass text book with loads of questions per topic in rising difficulty. (I think it was edexcels own, they even had a digital version of the book)

    To learn the stuff from scratch I'd recommend doing these questions, skip easy topics and go through thr explanations of new topics.

    Now once you're confident with that and thr exam is like 1 month away binge on past papers until you know the structure of hoe they'll ask questions.

    I wouldn't use the links suggesyted by Louisb 19 just yet - it's better to understand the topics a bit better first.

    Youtube as suggested is good but avoid Khan Academy as its too American and there are problems with some of them.

    Some topics worksheets here:

    Some video tutorials and other resources:

    Use keshmaths and go through all the booklets, watch m4ths videos on the ones you don't understand. I used this to practice vectors and index laws and I found it to be very helpful.

    Past papers are a good resource, aim to get them done in 45 minutes to 1 hour

    I've in boxed you a very nice link which actually helped me get an A* in GCSE Mathematics. My brother used the same for his GCE Maths and he had a very similar result as mine. Wish you all the best!

    Yes i can, but it is a tutoring service. Nevertheless, their rates are pretty low as compared to the normal tutoring rates here in the UK. Check your Inbox.
