In school I do well in ALL my subjects (I get A*s in Science) with the exception of Maths, I average a C to B grade overall. I'm in second set in Maths and I never made it to top set due to laziness and lack of motivation.
When taught anything in Maths I understand it, I really enjoy Maths and seek enjoyment from it. I even want to take it to A-Level and get an A or an A* in it. This sounds rather ridiculous but I'm willing to commit myself so much if I know what to do first. In my latest test I spotted that I lacked the ability to problem-solve, but it's all fine with me learning how to do every topic in Maths but I can't apply them which is my issue.
I really want to do well in Maths and I HAVE to. For me to do Physics in A-Level (which I'm really good at) I will have to get an A in GCSE and I think the same applies for Chemistry. So of course Maths will be my main priority subject and if I'm to take it for A-Level I will only do it with a strong A grade or an A*. I absolutely MUST achieve this and I will do anything it takes to get there.
I don't mind any advice but some advice from maybe really good Mathematicians whom have come out with amazing grades would be good for me. I just want study tips and the best way to ensure I'll do well and get an A* in GCSE Maths and carry it on later on in A-Level to help me pursue my dream job.
I'm 15 years old (almost 16) in my GCSE year and my exams start in the end of May. It may seem late but I'm a hopeful person a lot of the time.
Do you enjoy maths and physics?
Have some free time? Do some maths questions on a topic you struggle on. Revision? Exam questions. Basically, it's just practice that makes a good mathematician.
